Disable Merge option for Pull Requests from UI


Is it possible to restrict the users to merge their hotfix /feature / * branches to Master & develop only via command line and not using UI?



2 answers

Hi @Alastair Wilkes I believe I might have use case.

My team tends to follow git-flow when working, however we recently automated freezing dev code and releasing and we automated it using custom pipelines jobs.

Hence we freeze code from dev to release branch, and after we get greenlit, we release the code with another custom pipeline job:

  1. this job merges frozen code to master
  2. bumps any code version reference
  3. generates changelog
  4. tags and commits changes
  5. merges the changes back to dev
  6. and pushes it all back to origin

And since I wasn't able to find a way for bitbucket-pipelines to be the only one that could merge code to specific branch, it would really be neat to either disable the merge button, or even replace it with button that'll trigger specific pipelines job.

Hi Sowmya,

No, this isn't possible -- usually teams want to require that changes must be merged through the UI, not the other way around! :)

Can I ask: if Bitbucket had this feature, how would it improve your workflow?
