Merge Pull Request via 2.0 REST API

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 ?

Kind regards,

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,

Hi @Theodora Boudale ,

I have verified, and it works.


That's good to hear, thank you for the update.

Please feel free to reach out if you ever need anything else!

Kind regards,
