Is there a way to send a notification if a pull request is older then a few days?

I'm trying to find a pro active way to have a list of all PRs that have not been updated for more then 24 hours emailed to people. Is this possible? Is there anything within JIRA I can do to highlight this?

Bitbucket itself does not have anything like this. You could raise a feature request here.

However, if you are interested, you could probably build some form of this yourself.

You could write a cronjob that pulls the pull request API for open pull requests that have not been updated in the past n hours, then emails the reviewers. Should you want to take this further still, you could even write a Connect Add-On, publish it so that all Bitbucket users can use it.


To find the URLs of all pull requests that haven't been updated in the past 24 hours, this could be a starting point

$ curl "" -G --data-urlencode \
'q=state = "OPEN" and updated_on < '`date --date="-24 hours" -Iseconds` \
| jq '.values[].links.self.href'
