Jenkins Trigger build on Bitbucket when merge branch

Hi, I am fairly new to Bitbucket/Jenkins and I am trying to get Jenkins to trigger a build when my branch is merged into master on Bitbucket.

First of all I have successfully been able to integrate my Jenkins with Bitbucket so when I do a push on my branch to Bitbucket via a webhook, it will trigger a build in Jenkins and grab all the files and push to the correct environment. I've noticed in the webhook there is a trigger for Merge however when select this does not trigger a build.

Is there any appropriate plugin for this I can download for Jenkins or any help and advice would be greatly appreciated.

It is actually a rather typical automation problem which can be implemented with the Better DevOps Automation add-on.

Here is the step-by-step guide. It will just trigger the desired Jenkins build after every change even if that is a merge.

Note that there are other recipes available for more complex automation needs, like running a particular build if the "@build" command is in the commit message:


We're having the same issue here with our BitBucket Cloud server and our Azure-hosted Jenkins server. I have the following setup:

Jenkins 2.164.2
'Build when a change is pushed to BitBucket' checked in Jenkins job (BitBucket Plugin installed)

In the BB repository, added a hook under Settings -> Webhooks:
Title: Jenkins
URL <our jenkins server>/bitbucket-hook/
Status: Active
Request History: Enabled
Triggers: Choose from a list
Pull Request - Merged ticked only

When I merge a pull request, the hook is triggered and 200 response comes back from Jenkins, but no build is triggered:


In Jenkins I get a 'BitBucket Hook Log' tab but it just says 'Polling has not run yet'

One workaround is to create one job per branch. But that is certainly not DRY.
