      My guess is that something went wrong with the authentication. What is “XYZ”? How did you read the credentials?

      Invoke-WebRequest -Credential manish.garg -Uri https://api.bitbucket.org/1.0/repositories/company/project/raw/HEAD/some/special/file.txt-OutFile .file.txt

      Check here!!! XYZ i just put any random user name….it is not authentication problem.

      When I open the URL https://api.bitbucket.org/1.0/repositories/company/project/raw/HEAD/some/special/file.txt I receive this error message:

      That link has no power here.

      I suppose this means that you are unable to access file.txt without authentication. You probably just need to authenticate properly.

      this is also an random url….exact url i support you wouldn’t be able to access…since it is an private repo….
      that’s why mentioned any pseudo url…here is the deal…think about it…

      Invoke-WebRequest -Credential <<manish.garg>> -Uri <<HERE I’ll GIVE BITBUCKET REPO URL>>    -OutFile <<FILENAME>>

      HERE FILE IS DOWNLOADED BUT AS HTML NOT AS THE RAW ONE…
      CAN YOU PIN POINT IN ABOVE COMMAND WHAT I AM DOING WRONG WHICH IS NOT LETTING THE DOWNLOAD PROPERLY.

      Your commands looks okay. If it doesn’t work, either the URL or the credentials are wrong.

      Did you read the credentials like this:

      You can also have a closer look at the HTML file you receive. This will give you clues what went wrong.

      As an FYI, version 1 of the BitBucket API is being deprecated at the end of this month.  Has your org already switched to using version 2 of the API?  It could be because of that.  If I remember correctly, version 2 needs an OAUTH token for the $credentials parameter, rather than something that Get-Credential would return.

      There are a few things that could be going on, you’ll need to do a bit more digging to figure it out. I’ll start by suggesting a tool (Postman) and giving a bit of context into what’s probably going on.

      This is what an http conversation actually looks like. Red is what we send, blue is what we get back.
      wireshark google
      https://ibb.co/bEfn9o

      Here’s a practical example in postman (calling out to google.com)
      postman google
      https://ibb.co/isjavT

      Notice there’s 2 places we can send parameters, in the URI and in the Headers. One of the standard headers is Content-Type which indicates the format the web server is trying to send back to you.

      Try installing Postman, putting in your URI and playing around values you send in the URI and Headers, there’s probably a way to ask for it to send a text/plain instead of text/html file. Once you know what the URI and Headers need to be you should be able to translate your request into powershell code using the -URI and -Headers parameters
