How do you get a BitBucket pull request to trigger a Bamboo build?

I am developing a workflow using BitBucket and Bamboo, and can't for the life of me figure out how to tell Bamboo to create plan branches on a pull request. In fact, I see nothing at all in Bamboo Build plans about pull requests. I am able to get Bamboo to respond to a general commit on a matching plan branch, but we want our developers to do a code review and create a PR rather than having Bamboo handle auto-merging at that point. How are PRs generally handled in Bamboo? Is there a better way to do it?

Hi Derek,

Currently Bamboo doesn't handle pull requests very well (or at all honestly). Here is the existing feature request to get this functionality into Bamboo: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/BAM-14844

Until that functionality has been baked into Bamboo the only workaround would be to write a plugin or API tool yourself.
Apologies that a better solution isn't available at this time!

 

Thanks

Is there a recommended workflow for CI/CD using BitBucket and Bamboo?

We're using this to build, test, and deploy a PHP web application (Magento)

There have been some recent developments on this front. Bamboo 6.0 is able to trigger build in response to pull request create and update events. It can also be configured to create the theoretical merge of the source and target branches before building, increasing the chances of catching an integration problem.

Can you provide a link to any documentation on this?  I'd like to explore this as a possibility.

Hi, I simply set the bamboo build plan to check for commits at an specific branch, so when o merge the pull request it triggers the build.
