Creating a pull request via API

hello, Im wondering if its possible to create a new pull req using Bitbuckets API? Im trying to automate a process where a JIRA requests sends a POST with a ticket Json, and my shell script then adds a new file to a repo, commits, creates a new branch, pushes to master, and then finally creates a Pull Request for review.

 

I browsed the docs and it seems like I can only do GET. Is it possible to create new pull requests?

Im avoiding using other solutions like the Stash CLI gem due to ruby version requirements. Thanks.  

 

Bbucket 4.2.0

POST against: /rest/api/1.0/projects/{projectKey}/repos/{repositorySlug}/pull-requests

As the reference docs state: "Creates a new pull request between two branches."

https://developer.atlassian.com/static/rest/bitbucket-server/4.9.1/bitbucket-rest.html#idp2046528

Example POST from the reference docs:

{
    "title": "Talking Nerdy",
    "description": "It’s a kludge, but put the tuple from the database in the cache.",
    "state": "OPEN",
    "open": true,
    "closed": false,
    "fromRef": {
        "id": "refs/heads/feature-ABC-123",
        "repository": {
            "slug": "my-repo",
            "name": null,
            "project": {
                "key": "PRJ"
            }
        }
    },
    "toRef": {
        "id": "refs/heads/master",
        "repository": {
            "slug": "my-repo",
            "name": null,
            "project": {
                "key": "PRJ"
            }
        }
    },
    "locked": false,
    "reviewers": [
        {
            "user": {
                "name": "charlie"
            }
        }
    ],
    "links": {
        "self": [
            null
        ]
    }
}

 

p.s.  I invite you to try my Bitbucket and JIRA add-ons.  Bit-Booster Commit Graph and More (for Bitbucket), and Git Graph for JIRA.

thanks for that. 

Im running it like this,

 

curl -u username:MyPassword -H "Content-Type: application/json" https://mybitbucket.com/rest/api/1.0/projects/myProject/repos/myRepo/pull-requests -X POST --data req.json

 Json looks like this,
 

 

{
'title': 'testing-pull-req',
'description': 'testing testing',
'state': 'OPEN',
'open': true,
'closed': false,
'fromRef': {
'id': 'refs/heads/test-branch',
'repository': {
'slug': 'myRepo',
'name': null,
'project': {
'key': 'myProject'
}
}
},
'toRef': {
'id': 'refs/heads/master',
'repository': {
'slug': 'myRepo',
'name': null,
'project': {
'key': 'MyProject'
}
}
},
}
}

 

 

getting weird error, 

 

{"errors":[{"context":null,"message":"Unexpected character ('r' (code 114)): expected a valid value (number, String, array, object, 'true', 'false' or 'null')\n at [Source: com.atlassian.stash.internal.web.util.web.CountingServletInputStream@3e7de6ce; line: 1, column: 2]","exceptionName":"org.codehaus.jackson.JsonParseException"}]}

 

cant find anything on this, I checked the JSON syntax its valid. 

ok made it work, for some reason it didint like the json file, I formatted the whole thing as a compact 1-liner, 

 

{"title":"test","description":"test","fromRef":{"id":"refs/heads/test-branch","repository":{"slug":"test-repo","name":null,"project":{"key":"myProject"}}},"toRef":{"id":"refs/heads/master","repository":{"slug":"myRepo","name":null,"project":{"key":"MyProj"}}}}

 

ran it like this, 

 

curl -u user:myPW -H "Content-Type: application/json" https://bitbucket.server.com/rest/api/1.0/projects/myProject/repos/myRepo/pull-requests -X POST --data '{"title":"test","description":"test","fromRef":{"id":"refs/heads/test-branch","repository":{"slug":"test-repo","name":null,"project":{"key":"myProject"}}},"toRef":{"id":"refs/heads/master","repository":{"slug":"myRepo","name":null,"project":{"key":"MyProj"}}}}'

 

works

Might have been the single-quotes messing things up.  Single-quotes are valid for JavaScript, but invalid for JSON.

Hi,

I tred above code but this is not working for me. Getting null for URI.

how can I use not password but key?

@perfecto25just created an account to thank you, your minified json solution worked :)

command executed successfully but no luck. Pull requests didn't get generated. Here is the command which I fired.

curl -u myUserName:myPwd -H "Content-Type: application/json" https://bitbucket.org/rest/api/1.0/projects/myProject/repos/myCore/pull-requests -X POST --data '{"title":"merge","description":"merge","fromRef":{"id":"refs/heads/testBranch","repository":{"slug":"myCore","name":null,"project":{"key":"testBranch"}}},"toRef":{"id":"refs/heads/toBranch","repository":{"slug":"myRepo","name":null,"project":{"key":"testBranch"}}}}'

@perfecto25

Try to use like below... worked for me..

curl -u user:myPW -H "Content-Type: application/jso https://bitbucket.server.com/rest/api/1.0/projects/myProject/repos/myRepo/pull-requests -X POST --data @req.json
