Is it possible to create an arbitrary action that executes when a pull request gets created?
The use case:
I would like to create a Jenkins job, based on a standard set of rules, each time a pull request is created in a Stash repository. I can use Jenkins polling to watch the branch from there and keep building on commits. Also, I can use a merge request check plugin to approve or deny the merge based on the Jenkins build status. Finally, I can clean up leftover jobs from merged pull requests using some yet-to-be-determined process.
The easiest way to implement this would probably be to write a third service that uses APIs of both applications to handle this asynchronously (with the notable exception of the merge request check). I would like to avoid creating a separate entity, and so I am left with the question above.
If I'm barking up the wrong tree and someone has a suggestion for a better implementation, I'm all ears. I'm still in the early stages here and haven't committed to any particular method.
As a project manager, I have discovered that different developers want to bring their previous branching method with them when they join the team. Some developers are used to performing individual wo...
