Why does /2.0/repositories/{}/{}/refs/branches fail to return all branches

I have a private repo on Bitbucket Cloud with 7 branches.  A call to the API returns all but one.  I have tried fiddling with pagsize  and pagelength with no success.  Are there any known problems or restrictions with this endpoint?{myteam}/{repo}/refs/branches


Or is there an alternative endpoint I should be using?

Hello @markhamlin ,

Welcome to the Community.

The endpoint you refer to is the right one to list all branches of your repository. 

Do you see all 7 branches in Bitbucket's UI, e.g. here:<workspace>/<repository_slug>/branches/?status=all

If not, how did you count those 7 branches – maybe one of them is not pushed to Bitbucket and only exists on your local working copy?

If you believe there's an issue, please open a support case with us and point to the repository in question so that we can take a look.

Hope this helps.


I was counting remotes under the origin section in Sourcetree.  A look directly on the portal and a fresh clone both revealed the missing branch had been closed, so no missing branches after all, API working properly.  Thanks for your help.
