How to prevent a merge when one or more build in pipeline failed?

Hi we are currently exploring  bitbucket pipeline for our CI/CD process. one thing we want to achieve is to prevent merging when there is a failed build in the current Pull Request. right now i tried forcing the build to fail using php throw error. but when i click merge it pushes trough.

Hi Ken,

We have a feature in Bitbucket that can check if there are a required number of green pipeline on a PR before it can be merge (as well as some other options).

The merge check will display a warning on a PR that a merge check has not be satisfied (such as a failed pipeline).

If you're on the Bitbucket Premium Plan, then you can set this up to also prevent PRs from being merged until all merge checks are met. Which I believe is what you're asking for.



 now i get it. if you're not a premium plan, the` merge checks` will only have a warning. but able to merge it. you have to be a premium plan for the prevention of merge. 

thanks man. 

No problem. :)


Is this possible using Bitbucket server version?


Thanks a lot.

Bump, I'm trying to find out same answer, we're using bitbucket server 6. 10. 1

@Miguel A. Alonso I've discovered that the "Minimum Successful Builds" Merge Check is indeed available on Bitbucket Server. I'm using 6.10.1 and it works, however I'm finding in BBS these Merge Checks are only configurable at the Project or repo level. I cannot figure out how to apply them only to certain branches (namely, develop).
