BitBucket webhook on pull request merge

After installing the JIRA connector to Bitbucket (both cloud instances) there is a webhook in BB that triggers a workflow transition when a pull request is created. However, there is no webhook when a pull request is merged or declined. This means that transitions associated with these events are not executed.

Then I tried adding my own webhook through the UI using the same address as the existing "JIRA" webhook (https://host/rest/bitbucket/1.0/repository/webhook) which gets fired on pullrequest:rejected and pullrequest:fulfilled. The requests are sent correctly and return with 204 but there is no reaction in JIRA.

Did anyone succeed in getting this to work? It seems like a very common problem.

When u create new own webhook to JIRA at same URL, look into Webhook log. In JIRA (readonly) there is 



But in your own webhook this method is missing.


I have some problem.


As u can see in your cusmot webhook there is repo:push AND THEN pullrequest:fulfilled. Thast why in JIRA (readonly) PR merge/decline is not working. It will be done after next repo:push OR after sync JIRA with Bitbucket (manualy, or auto). Repo:push (commit, or create PR).

I send message to support 20/01/2017.

Do u fix this problem ?


P.S. I add trigger "commit create" to triger PR Merge. In Bitbucket repo with PR merge there is merge commit. Thats why it work. Byt this is cunning, not right way.
