hook does not fire after local commit


I have a account, offering me the possibility to have automated builds for my Go project that I host in a Bitbucket Mercurial repo. This works fine when I push changesets to the repo from my local machine.

But when I do a local commit on the Bitbucket site, the Post hook for the CI is not fired.

Is that a shortcoming, and so should I register a bug? Or is there a reason behind this behaviour?

You can check to see if your repo is firing what you would expect by following our guide to testing. Please give it a try, then come to support if you don't find a solution.

I read that page, Marcus, but it says nothing about testing the working of the Post hook after a Bitbucket local commit. (For clarity: by local commit I mean editing a file via the browser on the Bitbucket site itself, and then commit it from there.)

When editing a file online (In Bitbucket, in your web browser), the hooks fire exactly the same as when you commit and push locally (on your own machine).

I tried again, to no good. The local commit (1a853ccf1632) did not trigger a build. The last build on shows the one for cset 88dd6249717e. This concerns my public repo, if you wonder. I tried it with another repo of mine, also configured with, and it has the same problem.

In case you should follow the button in the overview page of the gohg repo, you will see a (failed) build on for cset 1a853ccf1632. But that is one I just triggered manually from the site itself, for testing something there.

Just to make sure you're not confused by that build :) .

(I'll ask the guhys at if they could mark manual builds as such.)

Hi Marcus,

I tried the test with, but the result is the same. All goes well when I push changes to the different repos, but a commit after editing in the browser on the Bitbucket website does not trigger any POST hook.

So to me it is clear that neither the repo (I tried two different repos) nor the called services (I tried two different services, one of which recommended by the document you referenced) are the cause of the issue.

Maybe it could indeed be something with the Bitbucket POST hook not firing after a commit from the Bitbucket website?

Regards, Johan


I also added an Email Hook, and that one too only fires when I push changes, but not when I do a commit via the Bitbucket website.

I guess this confirms that this is an issue, and not some misconfiguration.
