Is there any api to download pipeline artifacts. In my scenario I am generating an android .apk in one repo and trying to use this .apk in appium test which is in another repo.

Your pipeline is executed in a short-living Docker container which is dropped when the pipeline finishes. So if your artifacts are written to the container's filesystem, those will be lost.

We were a similar position like you, we needed to save the results of the pipeline and make downloadable by human users.

We did this:

  1. During the pipeline execution, after the artifacts are produced, we create Bitbucket downloads from those using the REST API. It is super-easy. We use a timestamp as suffix of the artifact's filename.
  2. Then if someone needs an artifact, he can go and download it any time.
  3. (Because we produce a lot of these artifacts, the pipeline will even delete those downloads that are older than N days, so we always have the artifacts produces in the last N days.)

It works fine and it has been stable for many years.
