Resolve issues automatically when users push code
You can configure Bitbucket to resolve tickets automatically when people push updates through to your Bitbucket repository. Users specify commands and issues in a commit message, for example:
hg commit -m "fixes #6, resolve ticket #5 and see ticket #9 and ticket #5 in the tracker"
On Bitbucket, the commit message appears with links to each issue:
When you transition an issue with a commit message, the system cross-references the commit from the issue:
If you enabled an issue tracker on your repository after August 2012, Bitbucket adds the Issues hook automatically for you when you enable the Issue Tracker. Older repositories with older issue trackers may or may not have this hook. You can check if this hook exists for a repository by going to the Hooks tab in the repository settings:
Adding the Issue Hook Manually
You only need to perform this procedure if your repository has an issue tracker enabled but does not have an Issue issue on the repository. You must have administrative access on a repository to add this hook.
- Go to the repository's settings.
- Click Hooks in the left-hand navigation.
The hook page appears.
- Select the Issues hook from the Hook dropdown.
Click Add hook.
A new section appears for the Issues hook.
- Press Save.
The page remains unchanged but the hook is started.
Including Issues in a Commit Message
To link commit to an issue from a commit message, include an command-issue pair somewhere in your commit message. This pair takes the following format:
You can link to a single issue or multiple issues. The
<issue id> can take an of the following forms:
You should always include the # (pound sign or hash mark) if you to ensure that links back to the issue resolve. If you omit the # (pound sign or hash mark), links from a changeset do not resolve.
Each action supports multiple
<command> keywords. The following table lists the actions you can perform through a commit and the acceptable commands for that action. All the keywords are case insensitive. So, for example, both
Close work to close an issue.
|resolve an issue||
|reopen an issue||
|mark an issue on hold||

|mark an issue invalid||
