Create pull requests in Bitbucket from Gearset's UI

Gearset enables you to create a Git branch, commit changes to it from any other environment, and then open a pull request — all from within its UI. In this post we’ll walk through an example with BitBucket. You can follow along by starting a free trial of Gearset.

Keep your deployments flowing

Once you’ve set up a Bitbucket connection on the Manage source control and Jira page in Gearset, you can create pull requests from within Gearset. After each successful deployment to a feature branch of your Bitbucket repository, there’s now a link to open a PR. This saves you the hassle of switching out to Bitbucket every time you run a deployment. Perhaps even more usefully, people on your team without Bitbucket experience can now fire off PRs as well, with a single click in Gearset’s UI.

How to create a PR in Bitbucket

Once you’ve successfully deployed your work to a development branch on your Bitbucket repo, you can open a PR by clicking Create pull request from the Deployment successful page.

Deployment successful page

When you click on the link, Gearset prepares a PR based on the branch you selected for the deployment. Give your PR a name and select your target:

Create a pull request

Gearset fetches the full list of available branches in the repository so that you can choose your target branch. If the repo has a master branch, Gearset will use the master as the default target. Now select your target and hit Create pull request:

Successfully created PR

Gearset lets you know that it’s created the PR. It also gives you a link to view the PR in Bitbucket. Try it out and follow the link to see the PR:
