Add a Post-Merge Hook to Repository

Hello,

I would like to be able to add a post-merge like hook that would ssh into a production web server and pull changes from a repository that has had a pull request merged into it. I've read all the other posts on this and I see that a webhook is the most recommended method. However I am not comfortable with publishing a page that executes code on my public-facing server. Is there another way to use a webhook that I'm unaware of that would prevent potential unauthorized code execution on my public-facing server?

I am quite surprised that this isn't a feature that has been made more accessible (i.e. without having to write my own add-on) to paying customers. It seems like this should be a standard part of the hooks available to Stash.

Anyway, any insight would be greatly appreciated.

-Tim.

Hi Tim,

Stash Pull Requests use 'git merge' command for sure.

Kind regards,

You should write a plugin that has a listener to PullRequestMergedEvent and does the SSH/deployment you need in the event handler.

As I alluded to in my original post, I was hoping to avoid having to learn Java, learn the Atlassian libraries, and then write my own plugin. I just don't have the time at the moment.

As a workaround, I was able to get a webhook add-on to do what I needed by locking down a specific port on my webserver to only allow traffic from my development server's ip address.

But like I said, this sort of functionality seems like it should just be part of the out-of-box functionality.

Hi Tim,

Maybe you don't need to write a plugin, but configure a Git post-merge hook?

That's not a bad idea. I had the same thought, but I wasn't sure I could do that without interfering with Stash's operations. Also, I've read elsewhere that a merge from a Stash Pull Request doesn't actually use the 'merge' command. Can you shed a little more light on this?

 

Thanks!

Interesting, I'll have to play around with this. Thanks for your insight!
