Bitbucket PR notifications in Slack

Automatically create ephemeral Slack channels dedicated to open Bitbucket pull requests.

How it works:

Actioner creates a temporary Slack channel dedicated to each Bitbucket PR request. The channel name contains the name of the PR and the name of its repository. Any stakeholders; assignees, and reviewers get invited to this channel to collaborate during the review.

What they will see in the PR channel is;

  • PR details as soon as it is opened. 
  • Comments added to Bitbucket PR as notifications.
  • Pipeline run results.

When the PR is closed, the ephemeral Slack channel gets archived. Having temp channels for PR reviews work as a productivity hack for development teams. Whenever a channel is archived, engineers get a sense of accomplishment by completing the review faster.

How to get started:

To begin with the Bitbucket PR review in Slack,

  1. Sign up to Actioner.
  2. Install Bitbucket pull request management.
  3. Connect Slack and Bitbucket
  4. Run setup workflows. First, select the repositories that you’ll get notified for the new PRs and next create a Bitbucket updates channel for PR updates.

Once you complete the steps above, whenever you open a PR, an ephemeral channel will be created, and you will start receiving Bitbucket pull request notifications in Slack.
