Check changed files in pull request

I'm writing a plugin that will flag changed files in a pull request and block it from being merged.

I have a merge request check, the only part I can figure out is how to get a list of files changed for the pull request. I see these is a simple way to get changed files from rest api, is there a good way to do this in a plugin?

Hi Kyle,

I think you're looking for PullRequestService#streamChanges



That was quick, thanks! Exactly what I was looking for. I looked at that page before but thought it was just for managing comments on a pull request.

Hi All,

I tried to implement for pullrequest#streamChanges

pullRequestService.streamChanges(prOpEvent.getPullRequest().getToRef().getRepository().getId(), prOpEvent.getPullRequest().getId(), new ChangeCallback() {


public void onStart() throws IOException { }


public void onEnd(boolean arg0) throws IOException { }


public boolean onChange(Change change) throws IOException {

//filePath = change.getPath().getName();

//here im updating the file paths to


return false;



I commited the mutiple files but im not getting all of them..

same problem im facing wit commitservice#streamChanges().




return false;

In your onChange method when you return false this ends the change stream. Return true to tell it to grab the next change.

Also you're using a deprecated method, you should do something like this instead:

pullRequestService.streamChanges(new PullRequestChangesRequest.Builder(pullRequest).build(), new ChangeCallback() {

return false was the problem..
