POST a new comment on a changeset in a line of a new file (BB-14707)

Issue #11925 open

created an issue

Using the bitbucket API ( I'm trying to post a comment on a changeset of a full new file. I tried to comment on several lines (-1, 0, 1, 10, ...) and the comment is done but it is not possible to see it anywhere. I can only comment in the file, not in a line. Example:

In a modified file I can comment in the new lines as in

    Edit: I was using only the parameter "line_from". I've found out that if I use the parameter "line_to" instead it works. Don't know why, and the documentation doesn't provide any hint.

    Hi Pedro, Commenting on a "green line" requires "line_to", a red line "line_from" and a white line should take either. Can you confirm your API call here, just to make sure it was using the proper parameter?

    Cheers, Gary

    Is that information available anywhere? (Commenting on a "green line" requires "line_to", a red line "line_from" and a white line should take either.)

    I can confirm that "green" lines require line_to, but for context lines ("white lines") only line_from worked for me. With line_to Bitbucket created a comment but it is not shown in the diff (only in the activity tab) due to "commented on a file but no context is available".

    Is this a known issue?
