How to find a merge-commit for the pull-request via Stash REST API?

I have the merged pull-request id, and I want to get the hash of it's merge-commit.

How can I do it?

Hi Ivan,

I hope I don't lead you astray but I'm not actually sure if that's possible from REST. We certainly have to the from/to refs in the core REST API, but that's not quite what you're after?

This might sound a little strange but you _could_ just use Git's smart HTTP ref advertisement instead. This is what Git uses as part of fetch/clone. You can see what I mean by running the following:

GIT_CURL_VERBOSE=1 git ls-remote origin

The environment variable is just so you can see the URL, which looks like:

curl "http://host:port/scm/PROJECT/repo.git/info/refs?service=git-upload-pack"

At that point you could just grep for the hash against refs/pull-requests/$PR/merge-clean.*

Does that help?

* Just FYI in an upcoming version of Stash we're planning on cleaning up some of these refs and merge-clean will most likely become merge. Just so you know.

GIT_CURL_VERBOSE=1 doesn't work for me, but your point is clear.

Hi Ivan,

As one of my colleagues just pointed out, if you're looking for the commit that was actually merged then my previous advice is going to be wrong. merge-clean is an internal ref that will always differ from the final merge commit.

Apologies for the confusion. I can't think of anything that will return the commit hash you're looking for. :(
