Currently you can only remotely trigger builds that are connected to a pull request.

API

Webhook to Jenkins can be used to trigger Jenkins via using it's REST API via the following endpoint:

/rest/jenkins/latest/projects/{BITBUCKET_PROJECT_SLUG}/repos/{BITBUCKET_REPOSITORY_SLUG}/triggerJenkins?pr_id={PULL_REQUEST_ID}
JAVA

We've created a sample python script which updates the settings for you. You can view it below.

The REST API needs the following inputs

BITBUCKET_PROJECT_SLUG

The Bitbucket project string id

BITBUCKET_REPOSITORY_SLUG

The Bitbucket repository string id

PULL_REQUEST_ID

The ID of the pull request
