Frequently Asked Questions
Configuring Bitbucket Slack notifications
You need to create an incoming webhook in Slack. Go to slack home using a web browser, and select Add Integrations. Scroll to the bottom, and select Incoming WebHooks (click on Add). This will generate the hook URL.
Project configuration for Slack notifications from Bitbucket
There are 3 places for the configuration. First is the global setting page that you can access from the Bitbucket administration. The second one is in the Project settings, which covers all repositories of a particular project. The project-level configuration works well for smaller Bitbucket projects or when a team owns a project.
On the project level, you can override project-specific preferences and settings to narrow down events.
Below you can see pull request notifications.
Additionally, you can set up Channels and branch patterns. Using this setting you can configure which Slack channel should be used for notifications about events in the particular branch(s).
It accepts a single channel name (example: #it-admins), or you can add a comma-separated list of pairs (pattern->channel). In this case, the format must be PATTERN->CHANNELNAME, ANOTHERPATTERN->ANOTHERCHANNELNAME. The pattern will match against the current ref name ignoring the "refs/heads" part. For instance, if you want to match refs/heads/bugfix/mybug42 and all other bugfix branches, add a pattern as bugfix/.* You can also leave it empty. When empty, the default channel will be used within the webhook.
Note: the branch filter is an event destination branch (“to” branch selected by default). It is important for some pull request events.
For instance, if you want to be notified when the pull request is merged and filtered by branch. You have to use the destination branch (“to” branch).
The “from branch” is used to filter by the source branch. Normally, it is used for pull request activities.
For example, I’ve got a branch issue/DEV-564-slack-card-refactoring and I want to receive notifications about PR comments to slack into my channel. I will set up `issue/DEV-564-slack-card-refactoring->#pull-request-comments`.
You have the option to enable notifications on a per-project basis. Go to your project settings page, select Slack settings and enable pull requests and/or push notifications with the checkboxes. You can override here the default global settings.
There are 4 additional filters are present:
users that triggered the events (users whitelist).
users that triggered the events and should be ignored (users blacklist).
user groups a user that had triggered an event should belong to (user groups whitelist).
user groups a user that had triggered an event should belong to and will be ignored (user groups blacklist).
Override settings for global slack notification options - If enabled, Slack notifications will use the settings defined on the project level instead of global settings. This flag overrides pull request filters or push notification options.
If you enable the flag, you MUST set a channel name as well (only the hook is not required).
Here is an example screenshot about the push notifications:
Add reviewers to the compact and minimal message types
There is a setting that controls whether the reviewers are added to the minimal and compact messages. It is present on all three levels.
This is how it looks when the setting is on.
Happy Slack notifications!
