Add Triggers for PR Comments


#1

Description of the feature request

I’d like to be able to trigger a build based on a PR comment.

Use case / for what or how I would use it

I’d like to be able to make a comment on a PR and have it trigger a workflow. It could be as simple as commenting “whammy” to re-trigger a full set of builds for a PR. The basic idea is to be able to trigger the workflow without having to go and click on “rebuild” from bitrise.

Hi @balexander,

Thanks for the #feature-request :blush:

We’ll look into this, in the while please keep in mind that this basic idea is supported by each and every trigger we have available, so in this specific case if you choose to merge the PR as well, that’s a push event, for which a build will automatically get triggered :slightly_smiling_face:


#3

I couldn’t see where to enable it for comments. There are only three triggers.

My issue is when I need to tweak build settings or if I have a flaky service causing a test to fail. I’d like to comment “whammy” or some other keyword to trigger the workflow(s) without having to restart each build triggered by the PR or push.


#4

There isn’t a trigger for comments specifically, sorry if that wasn’t clear.

Thanks for expanding on your use case however!
