RE: Easier access to Editor

Hi Mohammed,

Thank you for your response and quick fix. When I go to the branch, indeed, my changes are there. But somehow, they are not reflected in the pull request, even though if I were to manually push a commit, it would automatically reflect in the existing pull requests. So this is not playing well with Stash's normal behavior.

Well, when I edit there and commit, it doesn't appear to actually commit to the branch I was on, but makes another branch off of it. That workflow obviates what I had hoped to use the tool for. Is there something that I either don't see, or any plans in the future for this? Thanks.

Hey Philip,

We've added an edit button for pull requests, and we've fixed the bug you were seeing. Check out Editor for Stash version 1.50.



Hey Philip,

We've looked into this and see that you're right, it doesn't update the pull request. We've traced down the issue to some event processing in Stash and we'll be resolving it in version 1.5 of the editor. I'll post here again when it gets released.

With regards to the edit button on pull requests, we'll be adding that as well so stay tuned.


This appears to work beautifully. Thanks, and well done!


It looks like I may have celebrated too soon. It works perfectly fine for my stash user (who happens to be a sys admin in stash, I don't know if that's related) but the rest of my team gets errors when they hit the edit icon.

Sometimes, they get a "401, Access is denied" error, and sometimes they get a "500, Oops, an error occurred Please see your system administrator."

If it makes a difference, in my setup, there are branches where write access is limited to a certain user group. But the users trying to edit the pull requests should have write permissions to both the source and destination branches.



Hey Philip what Stash version are you on? You have to use Editor for Stash 1.5 for Stash 3.10.X

I'm on Stash 3.10.2

Stash 3.10.2 has a branch permissions bug. Use Editor for Stash 1.5 or upgrade to Stash 3.11. Editor for Stash 1.5 has the same functionality as Let me know if that works for you.

You were right. Upgrading to Stash 3.11.1 fixed my issue. Thanks!
