How to create a pull request from Bitbucket Pipelines


I have a Bitbucket Pipelines running making some automatic changes. It's checking out master, creating a branch, making changes and committing the changes to Bitbucket. However I would like to create a pull request for this automatically from Bitbucket Pipelines as well. 

Is there a code example available on how to do this? Looking forward to your replies.

Hello @Danny Verkade,

You'll need to use Bitbucket API for that. Here's an endpoint to create a Pull Request. There're some third party Bitbucket CLI clients which likely implement this API call. Or it can be something as simple as a curl command.

You will need to authenticate your request, I recommend to set up OAuth 2 consumer for that. Another option is basic auth with an app password. Note that in both cases the PR will be raised on behalf of the user you set OAuth consumer or app password for.

Hope this helps. Let me know if you have any questions.
