How to use Bitbucket Server 5.4 webhooks with Jenkins crumbs

With version 5.4 of the Bitbucket server, Atlasian (re-)introduced the webhooks. I tried to configure a webhook to notify our Jenkins 2.83 instance but the request was refused with an "Invalid crumb" message.

Please advise how to connect the new Bitbucket server webhooks to a Jenkins 2.x instance.

Please note that the invoked Jenkins job is of type Pipeline, which executes a parameterized script from an SCM.

Here are the details of the HTTP request and response:

You can use Generic Webhook Trigger Plugin. It does not require the crumb.

I have the same problem....

Our solution was to install "Pull request notifications" Bitbucket plugin:

It provides a good (for us) set of filters whether to trigger Jenkins for a build.

There is (at least) one main difference with the proposal of @Tomas Bjerre:  "Pull request notifications" Bitbucket plugin filters (sends or not) the requests at the Bitbucket side, while the "Generic Webhook Trigger" Jenkins plugin decides only on Jenkins side if to fulfill a received build request.

The approach to select depends only on your needs and possibilities :-)

This one allows you to insert the crumble and the documentation is a bit more accurate... But I am looking for a simple solution for:

1. Bitbucket: On pull request, calls Jenkins job with parameters and the two URLs: repository and forked repository,

2. Jenkins job merge and build and report result to the pull request on Bitbucket

3. Integrator can sip coffee instead of working hard... (:+)

But somehow, everything works apart of the "merge" between the two repository....

I am thirsty for advices
