How to delete a repository with Bitbucket Command Line Interface (CLI)

This article explains how to delete a Bitbucket repository using Bitbucket Command Line Interface (CLI).


Use the deleteRepository action to delete a single repository from a Bitbucket project.

In the following example, the command deletes the repo-2 repository from the slug project:

--action deleteRepository --project "slug" --repository "repo-2"

In the CLI action:

  • --project value refers to project key, name, or ID.

  • --repository value refers to repository key, name, or ID.

It is recommended to test this scenario in a non-production environment, or run the action with the --simulate parameter to verify the behavior before deploying.
