Allow pull request only if same commits were merged in a different branch before

Can I define a rule for accepting pull requests in a branch only if the commits were previously merged in a "test" branch?

For example in our organization we have a "master" branch, a "test" branch and a diffrent branch for every bugfix (let's address them with "a", "b"...).

I want to create a rule so you are not allowed to create or aprove a pull request of brances "a" or "b"... to "master" if all the commits contained in branches "a" or "b"... are not contained yet in the "test" branch. (meaning that they were not tested)

Can you help me?

It is not possible at the moment. 

More precisely, your requirement is rather custom, so I think having precisely this feature is not very realistic. But! If you look at the Bitbucket roadmap, you can see a feature coming soon which will allow developers to add custom merge checks!

This is exactly what you need to implement your requirement.

Hi @bogdanTudorStefan

I'm just wondering if having 'a' and 'b' in the 'test' branch is sufficient. Shouldn't passing the test also be a requirement? How are you currently tracking and enforcing this?
