is there any rest API in bitbucket which can download the file at particular commit?

With below-mentioned API


But with this API for binary files, we get this response

    "binary": true,
    "path": {
        "components": [
        "parent": "src",
        "name": "log-output.7z",
        "extension": "7z",
        "toString": "src/log-output.7z"

For text files, we get this response

    "lines": [
            "text": "abcd"
    "start": 0,
    "size": 1,
    "isLastPage": true

I can re-create files with API response for text but is there any way to download the binary file or to get their size?

Hi Nikhil,

I haven't tested this, but you may be able to get the file itself using this endpoint:

Hi Christian Glockner,
Thanks, I have tested this API, I am able to get the file but for binary files, I am not getting the accurate size, is it the expected behavior?

Can you please help me out with the following queries as well?
