“filtering not recognized by server” error when trying `git clone --filter=blob:none`


I'd like to get a blobless clone of a repo hosted at `git clone`, so I'm running this command:

git clone --filter=blob:none git clone

But it doesn't work. It displays this error message and displays the entire repo data:

warning: filtering not recognized by server, ignoring

Does bitbucket not support git filters?

Is there a way to enable filters?

Or when is this functionality scheduled to be available?

Hi @strangecode,

I'm afraid that this is not supported in Bitbucket Cloud at the moment.

We have a feature request about this in our issue tracker:

Since you're interested in that feature, I would suggest adding your vote to that ticket (by selecting the Vote for this issue link) as the number of votes helps the development team and product managers better understand the demand for new features.

You are more than welcome to leave any feedback, and you can also add yourself as a watcher (by selecting the Start watching this issue link) if you'd like to get notified via email on updates.

We don't provide ETAs, implementation of new features is done as per our policy here and any updates will be posted in the feature request.

Kind regards,
