REST /rest/build-status calls not being routed to RepositoryBuildStatusSetEvent


In Bitbucket 8 the ‘’ got removed. There is the newer ‘’ replacement.

However, I’ve noticed that REST calls to the POST /rest/build-status/1.0/commits/{sha} does not trigger the newer RepositoryBuildStatusSetEvent event.

In Bitbucket 7, if the /rest/build-status/1.0/commits/ endpoint is called, the old, deprecated BuildStatusSetEvent is triggered. However, in Bitbucket 8 the event is gone and you have no way to get build notifications via the ‘/rest/build-status/1.0/commits/’.

There is another REST api to update build events, the /rest/api/1.0/projects/{PROJ-KEY}/repos/{repo}/commits/{sha}/builds, which is routed to the RepositoryBuildStatusSetEvent event. However, if a tool uses the build-status, then you are out of luck.

Is there a way to get events for both REST APIs, which works for Bitbucket 7 and 8?

Update: Ahah, the /rest/build-status/1.0/commits/ REST API is deprecated. It was marked as such in version 8.3. However, then it looks like the documentation got moved or disappeared.

Hi Roman,
we came across the same issue - and built a servlet filter for /rest/build-status/.. to generate the event for the app. Hope that helps.

Thanks for the work around idea =)
