Creating stash pull request programmatically

I want to create a pull request automatically once a new branch is added to a project. My script will take a reviewer's name and branch name and will create a branch on stash repository using git command. Is there a way for me to create a pull request through my script?Is there a stash client in similar lines as jira client? Or can it be done using stash RestAPI or Java API?

Hi Vikas,

Personally I would do this as a Stash plugin. Here is an example of a plugin that acts as a webhook to notify a Jenkins URL:

The most important class:

In Stash 2.0+ the RepositoryPushEvent has access to the RefChanges, which have a 'type' which might be ADD. For those refs you could create a PullRequest by injecting the PullRequestService and calling create.

You could also do this via REST, but then you will need a script to poll Stash for new changes.

I hope this helps.


Thanks Charles, Your first two links are not working but i got the idea. I will try the command line interface suggested by Stefan and see if it does everything which we require.

Is it possible for you to update the broken links?

Hi Vikas,

Sorry about that. I migrated that repository to our Atlassian account. They should work now.
