Bitbucket Pipelines & approvals

Monica Gordillo April 8, 2021

I know that Bitbucket Pipelines has the ability to make a deployment manual (trigger: manual).  Is there a way to send approval to another user before continuing with the deployment to production?  Maybe there's a 3rd party pipe that can do this?

@Monica Gordillo Currently Bitbucket Pipelines doesn't have the capability to request approvals for deployments within the product. Bitbucket Pipelines does have integration with Jira Service Management which allows you to request approvals.

@Justin Thomas @Monica Gordillo Will this code work for auto-approval?

build: &build
name: Build
- echo "Starting build..."
#- <your build logic>
- ALERT_TYPE="success"
- if [[ $BITBUCKET_EXIT_CODE -ne 0 ]]; then ALERT_TYPE="error" ; fi
- pipe: atlassian/email-notify:0.3.12
FROM: ''
TO: ','
HOST: ''
SUBJECT: '${ALERT_TYPE}:Bitbucket Pipe Notification for ${BITBUCKET_BRANCH}'

When you use a manual trigger (see e.g. ), you can send an email from e.g. a bash script or through a webhook.

Sounds like no option exists within Bitbucket Pipelines itself? 

Unfortunately, the manual trigger cannot be the only/first step in the pipeline.

I'd love to be able to configure approvals to move on to deployment to prod stage in the pipeline.
