Hi Betty

Can you please provide more info on what you are trying to do? If you are referring to a file in a Git repo, you should be cloning the repo.



On the side of bitbucket server your files are stored within standard git-repositories. The server side git-repositories are bare repositories, located at %BITBUCKET_HOME%/shared/data/repositories.

The real names of the repositories are obfuscated by numbers - the mapping of the number to real repository name is stored within the Bitbucket database.

As you cannot access directly files by name within a git repository, you might need to clone the desired repository (as @Bhushan Nagaraj already stated).

Another way to access a single file on a git server is using the git-command git archive. For more information have a look at: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1125476/retrieve-a-single-file-from-a-repository. Git archive on Bitbucket server is supported through plugin https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.atlassian.stash.plugin.stash-archive/server/overview
