How to get Pull request title as a Variable

Hey Team,

I would like to know how to get the Pull Request title as a Variable in Pipeline.


The below document gives a list of default variables, but can't find what I am looking for.


1 answer

You can get the title of a pull-request via the API.

The BITBUCKET_PR_ID is available as environment variable if the pipeline is a pull-request pipeline.

I am getting the error 

Access denied. You must have write or admin access.

and I am the Admin of the Repo and Workspace.


Also is there a way I can get the Pull request title as a Variable just like BITBUCKET_PR_ID?

@tony.thomas Yes, as written, you can get the PR title as output from the API. The output can be assigned to a variable (e.g. with utilities like jq or similar).

This requires using the API successfully first. Please check the existing Q&A and support resources for that incl. trouble-shooting. Some more references:

If it still does not work for you, please provide the example.

Example with the curl and the jq utilities (working API authentication with necessary access rights required):

 - |
curl ... -fsS -H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
"/pullrequests/${BITBUCKET_PR_ID}" \
| jq -r '.title')" \
