Can scriptrunner prevent branch deletion through the UI?

Baris Acar Feb 03, 2016

Is there a way to use ScriptRunner to prevent branch deletion performed through the UI? (for stash versions prior to 3.10 which don't have this support built-in).

I can see it's possible with a pre-receive hook, but I think this wouldn't prevent a delete through the UI. I had a look through the event hooks but I couldn't see a CancelableEvent for branch deletion.

Hi Baris,

ScriptRunner events are categorised in cancelable and non-cancelable sections in the Script Event Handlers functionality.

If you use the Script Event Handler functionality and create a custom BranchDeletionRequestedEvent then it should be canceleable, please see this link:

https://developer.atlassian.com/static/javadoc/bitbucket-server/4.0.3/api/reference/com/atlassian/bitbucket/event/branch/BranchDeletionRequestedEvent.html

I hope that helps.

Ah, thank you! The link to this from the adaptavist documentation was broken (I see you have fixed this now - thank you) and my own googling 'Atlassian CancelableEvent' took me here which on reflection is obviously (from the URL) out of date.

Hm - I don't have "Custom event handler" available - is that because it's not enabled for me for my repo, or is this not possible at the repo level?

(I do have available other standard actions in response to events)

Hi Baris,

Branch permissions in later versions allows you to control who can delete branches. Take a look at https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/BitbucketServer/Using+branch+permissions

For your existing version, you might find the below link helpful.

Hope that helps.

Right. Not sure about ScriptRunner but you might find this helpful. It is compatible with the version you are running.

Maybe time for an upgrade wink
