Add text input for pull request plugin?


I am attempting to create a Stash pull request plugin where I would require a value at the time of the merge. Is there any way to be able to have the person doing the merge submit a value into a text field and in turn use that value elsewhere in the code?

Hi Jim,

Any luck? Unfortunately it's not something that's easy to do. We have a few servlet-based approaches for how to support this kind of plugin point, but nothing yet for REST. It's something we'd like to solve to make these customisations possible in different places.

As a (very dodgy) work around you could hijack the submit button in JS, send the request to your own REST endpoint as well as the normal one.



Hi Charles,

I still have not come up with a solution. My current thinking is to do this outside of Stash using the REST api, which of course makes what we want to do an extra step. Utlimately, we would like to do a bulk update of a custom field in Jira.

When a merge takes place; gather all the Jira tickets from the commits to be merged and update the Jira field in each of those tickets based on what was entered into the text field by the person performing the merge.
