      Problem Definition

      When downloading an archive from Bitbucket Server, only the LFS pointer files are downloaded and not the source object files themselves.

      Suggested Solution

      Implement support of including the LFS objects themselves in the git archive file. Please consider enabling/disabling this feature at a repository/project/global level or present it as an option when selecting to retrieve the archive.


      The only present workarounds are
      A) to perform a local git clone of the repository & run a git lfs pull to manually retrieve the LFS objects.

      • If needing to pass the archive to others, you can use the git archive command to generate a zip for those in need.

      B) Access the file via the Bitbucket User interface and download directly
