Migrate 100s of projects from BitBucket to GitHub or GitHub to BitBucket

Hi there,

I'm working on a project to consolidate heavy use of both BitBucket and GitHub into one or the other. Are there any APIs to help facilitate this within AppVeyor?

E.g. if I manage to move the repo from BitBucket to GitHub, can I tell AppVeyor to update the pull URLs and recreate the webhooks?

    Hi Michael,

    There are no API to change project source control management system type. Easiest way top create a new projects, which is possible with API. Here I see 2 potential issues:

    • if new project created for the repository which has the same name, project URL slug will have random adding to avoid duplication. To avoid that you can rename slug for the old project.
    • project build history will remain with older project. You can request move of project histories from us. We will be just needed to know AppVeyor account name and slugs of old and new projects (in pairs). Request should be send from some user with Administrator role in the account.
