Can I trigger a pipeline by sending a POST request to a webhook URL?

I would like to be able to trigger a pipeline to build every time I send a request to a webhook URL.

Use case:

I have a headless WordPress install that every time any content is updated, it sends a request to a webhook. Currently, it sends to Netlify to rebuild the static front-end. I would like this instead to trigger a bitbucket pipeline.

Hi Dario, thanks for that.

While it does trigger a pipeline, I cannot use the API in that way because the format the trigger works in just uses a URL. (The plugin I am using for this is here )

I cannot do oAuth or set headers like in the example provided.

I have no knowledge of the tool you are using. However, I can confirm that in order to be able to call any Bitbucket REST API endpoint you must be able to authenticate your requests using one of the methods described in:
