Detecting software downloads in Stash

A user would like to be notified whenever someone downloads their code from Stash. I don't see a quick way to do this other than possibly scraping atlassian-stash-access.log. Is there a better way?

Users are required to log in to Stash to perform any actions, so I know we won't have any anonymous downloads

Please ignore whether this is a good idea or not. For now, ignore the difference between typical git operations (e.g. clone) and a download via https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.atlassian.stash.plugin.stash-archive/.

Hi DI2E,

If you don't mind working with java, the Stash plugin system allows you to implement a servlet-filter module that can be mapped to any URL pattern in Stash. Clone, pull and archive operation URLs have the project key and repository slug in them, which you can use to determine which repository is being downloaded. You can also use the SAL UserManager to determine which user is performing the operation, and then log it to a file / POST it to another webapp / email / hipchat / whatever.

The Stash developer docs have some great material on getting started with the plugin system.

cheers,

Tim
