if stash resolves an issue on merge and there is a required field to resolve a bug will the merge fail?

If you have JIRA setup to require a field to resolve a bug and you have stash set to resolve the issue upon merge will the merge fail?




say we had JIRA setup to force a user to enter their "unit-test" name upon when moving an issue to resolved.

also stash is setup so that if a pull request is linked to an issue it will be resolved on merge.


Alice creates BUG-1

Alice then links BUG-1 to pull request 2

Bob verifies and then merges pull request 2

Does BUG-1 then go to resolved state? does the merge request fail due to not having the required fields to resolve the issue?

Is there any way to force the merge to fail until they somehow provide the required "unit-test" field?

Hi Casey,

The issue transitioning happens after the pull request is merged. If the issue is missing the required field, you will still be able to merge the pull request, but the issue won't be transitioned into the resolved state (because JIRA won't do it).

If you want to prevent the pull request from being merged, you can build a plugin to block it by using a MergeRequestCheck. You can find documentation and examples on
