Programatically sync a branch from the parent repo


I have a master repo, named "ProjMaster"

I have a branch off the master named "ProjDev"

I also have a branch off of "ProjDev" named "ProjFeat".

I need a way to programmatically, sync "ProjDev" with all changes made to "ProjMaster" and then, sync "ProjFeat" with the newly updated "ProjDev".

I have been doing this manually but, using Jenkins to do builds, I need a way for Jenkins to sync a branch with its parent before starting the build process.

Any suggestions or recommendations?

A sync is essentially a merge and we don't have an API endpoint to sync / merge branches without using a pull request.

We have an API endpoint to merge pull requests, so what you could do instead is use our API to create a PR:

And then use the following endpoint to merge the PR you created:

Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions.

Kind regards,
