Update merge commit message Edited

When you merge pull request, bitbucket by default generate Merge commit message.

User can edit this message in "Merge pull request" dialog.

We are looking for possibility to have another merge commit message by default. Ideally, we want to take Pull request title and put it as merge commit message.

Is it possible to do via bitbucket plugin sdk?

Hi @Evgen Temchenko you can't configure a custom default message of the merge commit. What you can do instead, is to edit the commit message before merging the pull request.

What you can do is to watch and vote on this issue:

When you add yourself to the watchers, you will get a notification when the feature is implemented.


Thanks for the response. I already gave my vote.

But I also wanted to understand whether it's possible to handle via MergeChecks extension or some other way using SDK?

I think you should be able to create a custom merge check. Here is the link to the documentation on how to do it:

The PullRequestMergeHookRequest.getMessage() should return the merge commit message you could validate.



@Maciej Adamczak  is there any way to update the message? 

Since we are talking about the merge check you can only use this information to validate the commit message and reject the merge as far as I'm aware.
