batch remove of many repositories/projects in Stash/Bitbucket Server



for testing new Bitbucket version I've cloned our production server and renamed it to "test". The problem is, I don't want to have production repos on this "test" instance because of security reasons, but as far  I understood in order to remove all projects I need to remove associated repos first, every one by opening it and click "delete" button. I have around 100 repos, is  there another way to automate/speed up it?

Your could use the REST API and create a script to remove the repositories. /rest/api/1.0/projects/{projectKey}/repos/{repositorySlug} has an option for delete.

Forgive the advertising but you can do this with ScriptRunner for Bitbucket Server

Please see this example which can be run in Admin -> ScriptRunner -> Script Console and will remove all repositories for a particular project and could easily be adapted to your needs.

Its worth checking out if you want to automate particular tasks in Bitbucket Server or customise your instance.

You can find out more from the documentation about how ScriptRunner for Bitbucket Server can help you.

I forgave you very quickly - since this solved my issue the most elegant way. Thank you for sharing the knowledge and the product :)
