Bitbucket: Checks for merging pull requests - No incomplete tasks



Even if I checked

it's still unclear to me, what kind of tasks are meant here.
Is this about Jira tasks, a branch might be derived from? That's something I expected it to be.
But, I don't think so.
So, could anyone explain me what tasks Bitbucket checks here for completion, before allowing a merge?

Hi Klaus,


In Bitbucket Server, the tasks meant in the merge checks documentation page is the pull request tasks

You can attach one or more tasks to any pull request comment, to track required work identified during a review. Anyone with permission to browse a pull request can create a task on any comment, and can browse, resolve or reopen existing tasks in the pull request. Repository admins and pull request authors can edit and delete any task in the pull request. Reviewers and others can only edit or delete their own tasks. A Bitbucket Server administrator can set a merge check that requires all tasks to be resolved before the pull request can be merged. See Checks for merging pull requests.

If these checks are enabled, Bitbucket will check for the pull request tasks for completion before allowing them to merge.

They're just checkboxes that anyone can tick to resolve, kinda pointless really.


Unlike githubs "change requests" which can only be resolved by the reviewer requesting the change.

Thanks a lot guys.
That's something I did not recover until now. Your answers are very helpful to me.
