Compare branches, tags, and commits

You can quickly find revision changes using the Compare page. 

Comparing revisions

Available in Bitbucket Data Center and Server 6.3 onwards.

To compare revisions in Bitbucket Data Center and Server:

  1. Navigate to the repository where you want to compare revisions.
  2. From the sidebar, click  Compare.
  3. In the Compare page, from both the Source and Destination dropdown, select any combination of branches, tags, or commits. The source and target branches, commits, or tags may be located in different forks.
  4. Once selections are made, the comparison results display in a diff and  a commits list tab.

Bitbucket uses git diff ...

A three-dot diff is a comparison between the commit where the feature branch was last synched with the destination branch and the most recent version of the feature branch.

A two-dot diff is the direct comparison of two committish references such as SHAs.
