Hello, I am trying to setup a post-commit hook to check the format of the commit message (basically to enforce that it references a corresponding Jira issue number). I see some threads about POST messages, but I'm unclear how to set this up and how it can deny the commit if that's what we want it to do?
Should I be thinking of this in terms of each user's git repository? Do we embed the post-commit hook into the .git directory and then rely on this working PRIOR to any pushes?
You need to implement a client-side hook for this. Why? You want to check the commit message before it reaches Bitbucket. The BB POST service executes as a post-receive hook.
Post-commit hooks are client-side hooks that happen after a commit is processed. It is usually used for notifications. You most likely want a commit-msg hook.
Great doc on Git commit hooks:
Google "git commit-msg hook" to find helpful examples.
