You can consume the payload with Generic Webhook Trigger Plugin.

but what if one is using bitbucket_webhook?

It is an old question but since there is no answer yet, I will suggest the way I'm using.

Bitbucket payload is in JSON format. I'm reading the payload using jq. Jq is similar to sed for json files.

The payload comes to jenkins as BITBUCKET_PAYLOAD. In order to consume the data in jenkins job, I create a variable payload and further I trim the payload to show only specific branch impacted, as follow:

payload=${BITBUCKET_PAYLOAD}
payloadbranch=$(echo $payload | jq -r .push.changes[].new.name)

the "payloadbranch" is the variable to be used as branch in git path.
