enable an update hook in bitbucket git repository


I'm looking for way to create a git server side push hook (will be used to enforce referencing JIRA ticket number in each commit message).

According to pro git - git hooks, the git hook to use on the server side is 'update', which exists on .git/hooks dir.

How do I perform it in my bitbucket git repo?

At the moment, Bitbucket doesn't support this. We do have an open issue for it though. Please go review it and add your comments!

Will this ever be available for Butbucket Server (not Cloud) ?

Ok, I've created a solution for Bitbucket Server.

It requires filesystem access with admin/root rights to the Bitbucket Server host, but it works fine.

Please see https://github.com/AlexanderAmelkin/bitbucket-git-hooks-for-jira

Although Bitbucket doesn't allow you to configure the server-side hooks, there is a really neat method to verify commit messages using local hooks!
