How do I make and associate builds with pull requests?

My org has a self-hosted instance of Bitbucket/Stash.  I have git experience, but not much as a "git admin" (although git seems to require everyone to be an admin to some extent).

I've created a project and repo.  I did an initial checkin and push of a codebase, and also created and merged a pull request (from myself).  The basic process appears to work.  I'm only doing this to prototype enhancing the dev process for a real project and team I work on.

We use a Jenkins build server.

I need to understand all of my options for causing the creation of a pull request to automatically communicate with Jenkins to run a build of the source repository on the source branch, and to coordinate the results of that build with Bitbucket.  I've tried to browse the docs, but I can't find a clear story in there for how to do these things.

I would recommend that you look at this plugin which will allow you to trigger builds in Jenkins based on pull request events.

As for putting results back into Bitbucket, a script called by Jenkins can use the Bitbucket REST API to update the status for a particular commit:
