Run pipeline on merge

Deleted user Feb 02, 2018

Hi I'm currently having some trouble setting up a pipeline when I'm merging a feature branche in my develop branch and generating a Changelog.

Current situation

  • Pipeline is being triggerd on every push to develop.

Wished situation

  1. Trigger pipeline only when I merge a feature branch to develop.
  2. Generate changelog
  3. Push generated changelog to develop
  4. Don't run pipeline

Right now my pipeline is being stuck in a loop since I'm pushing my generate changelog to develop after the merge.


Current bitbucket-pipelines.yml

- step:
- node
script: # Modify the commands below to build your repository
- git config ""
- git config "my_name"
- npm install
- npm run release
- git push --follow-tags origin develop

 I hope you guys can help me out!

For future reference, you can disable triggering the pipeline by committing with "[skip ci]" in the commit message - see FAQ about this.
What I would do in the requested scenario is to actually implement CHANGELOG in the PR itself to be able to review it *before* merging to develop happens.

This feature is yet to be implemented by atlassian dev team. I have added reasons why this feature would be ideal in two (of many more) scenarios to the aforementioned feature request:

Is this resolved?

any update on this ?

Hey @[deleted], 

There's a feature request open at that I would love to get your feedback on.

We use bitbucket site/master issues to track customer requests and feedback on improvements we can make to Pipelines.



Was there an update on this issue?  

I was asked to execute a task upon a merge into master, and not on a master branch build.

Thank you.
