Is it possible to generate pull requests via scriptrunner for bitbucket server?


Summary Question: Can I generate a pull request using scriptrunner for bitbucket server?


I am working on a certain workflow that requires PRs to multiple branches when a change needs to be made, and right now individuals must create all 3 PRs by hand (or in some cases with custom scripts that use bitbucket API).

I am interested in finding a way to generate 2 of the PRs when 1 is created, or perhaps I will decide to generate all 3 PRs based on some other event.

I learned from this page how to implement a custom listener:

However, my challenge is not on triggering the event, but it is in finding how to cause another event to occur, specifically the generation of a pull request.

I did find this:

which led me to this:

That gave me hope that maybe it was possible to do what I am trying to do, since this script also causes an event to occur.


I also consulted the atlassian documentation. There I found 2 docs that seemed to be a promising way to create a Pull Request using ScriptRunner.

Then search: "com.atlassian.bitbucket.pull"

From what I can see we would:

Use PullRequestService to create a pull request (interface).

Use PullRequestCreateRequest class as parameter for class that implements PullRequestService.


Unfortunately without any concrete examples, there will be a lot of trial and error and guessing how to put the pieces of this code together, and it might not work when all is said and done, but here's hoping!

Additionally, if you have other suggestions for accomplishing the same task, I would also welcome those suggestions. Any insight is greatly appreciated!

Hi @rgewondjan ,

We have recently added a script to our Adaptavist Library that shows you how to use the PullRequestService to programmatically create Pull Requests using ScriptRunner for Bitbucket.

The script is available here:
