So I have this CLI plugin installed I went thru the docs and see examples but I think they assume I know how to run them. What I need to do is do some action against a repo using this as there is no REST API for setting the branch restrictions. I saw this has that capability but I have no idea how to call this from Jenkins...I could ssh from Jenkins to the Bitbucket server but what is the application name? Once the plugin is installed should it be available at the OS? I am on Linux. I mean is it just ACLI then the parameters? or what is the executable? Is there a way to call it without ssh to the server?
These are probably simple but I need a kick start.
Hi @TC - You're really close! Once the ACLI is installed on the server from which you will run it, you can simply run it like anything else in the shell. acli is the shell script you will run and then you provide the action you wish to take and the parameters for that action.
acli --action addSshKey --userId "testuser1" --file "./sshkey.rsa.pub" --server https://mybitbucket --user [user] --password [password]
Ok so what does installing the plugin in bitbucket get me? Does that install acli on the bitbucket server? or do we also have to download/install say Linux: ACLI-9.2.0-installer.run and then whne you run it is it independent of the plugin? Or does it work with the plugin? Guess I don't understand the purpose of it. Sorry for the noob questions but this is my first foray into using this because I want to set branch restrictions programatically and I can't find a good rest call to do it but saw cli can.
Hey Community! We’re willing to wager that quite a few of you not only use Bitbucket, but administer it too. Our team is excited to share that we’ll be releasing improvements throughout this month of...
