Creating branches using the Bitbucket REST API

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: repository Resource

Is there a way to create a branch in a Bitbucket cloud repository using the REST API? There's a button on the Web UI to do so.. I know I can use git itself to create and push a branch, just wondering if I can do it in our build process without cloning the repo locally first.

it's not the official API docs but I traced the web call from the frontend but this works

curl -X POST -H "Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded" -vv -u '$USERNAME:$PASS' "https://bitbucket.org/branch/create" -s -d 'repository=$TEAMORUSER%2F$REPO&from_branch=master&branch_name=staging'

 

Didn't have any luck with that:

'from_branch' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.
'branch_name' is not recognized as an internal or external command,
operable program or batch file.

Worked for me just a few minutes ago. Can you provide the command you're using without your credentials scrubbed?

 

Ergh, apologies, it's working fine.

 

Must have missed a typo the other day.

Any answer on this?  I need to do this as well.
