Git hook scripts have wrong name?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Git hook scripts are not executing

In our case, the files had the wrong name, so we had to rename them. 

find . -name 20_stash_callback -type f -exec rename 20_stash_callback 20_bitbucket_callback {} \;


It seems like this was the case even for repos created after we upgraded. How is this filename determined and how can we make it so new repos will have the correct filename?

Hi Adam, 

there seems to have been a mistake in the KB article you linked. I've added a note about the naming of the scripts.

In current versions of Bitbucket, the hook scripts will be called 20_stash_callback and should not be renamed. Bitbucket will execute the 20_stash_callback script.

I hope this helps,
