Merge Pull Request via 2.0 REST API

CT Wu January 2, 2023

Hi All,

I have an access token with all permission, however, I cannot merge a pull request via REST API with this token. The error prompt is as follows.

> Merging a pull request requires write access to the destination branch

 

The REST API totally follows the official documents

In addition,  I have verified my repo's branch restriction which is no any rule.

Hi @CT Wu and welcome to the community!

Could you please provide the following info, so we can better help you?

1) Is this a PR between two branches in the same repo? Or is it a PR from a forked repo to the parent of the fork?

2) What kind of token are you using?

  • Is it a token generated from an OAuth consumer?
  • Is it an Access token generated from Repository settings > Access tokens for this repo, on Bitbucket Cloud website?
  • Or is it an app password generated for your account from https://bitbucket.org/account/settings/app-passwords/ ?

Kind regards,
Theodora

Hi @Theodora Boudale ,

1. Two branches in the same repo owned by me.

2. Repository settings > Access tokens for this repo, on Bitbucket Cloud website, plus all permissions are checked.

Hi @CT Wu,

Thank you for the info. There was a bug preventing a merge via API using a repository access token, we had a public bug report about this here:

The bug was fixed a few hours ago.

Could you please try running the API call again now and let me know if it works?

Kind regards,
Theodora

Hi @Theodora Boudale ,

I'm facing the exact same issue.

I'm trying to hit the following curl:

curl --location --request POST 'https://api.bitbucket.org/2.0/repositories/<workspace>/<repo>/pullrequests/1493/merge' \
--header 'Authorization: Bearer <access_token>' \
--header 'Accept: application/json' \
--header 'Content-Type: application/json' \
--data-raw '{

}'

I have created the access_token from Repository settings > Access tokens for this repo, on Bitbucket Cloud website. All the permissions are checked except Delete repo.

I'm getting the following error response:

{
"type": "error",
"error": {
"message": "newstatus: Merging a pull request requires write access to the destination branch.",
"fields": {
"newstatus": [
"Merging a pull request requires write access to the destination branch."
]
}
}
}
I've attached the permissions screenshot.Screenshot 2023-03-01 at 7.52.02 PM.png
