Pull Request Comment Audit Log



    • UIS:
    • Feedback Policy:
      We collect Bitbucket feedback from various sources, and we evaluate what we've collected when planning our product roadmap. To understand how this piece of feedback will be reviewed, see our Implementation of New Features Policy.


      Atlassian status as of July 2020

      Good news! In Bitbucket Data Center 7.0 we added Advanced Auditing feature which helps admins and security teams to have a global view on auditing events. Pull request comment events are also audited if you set Level of coverage -> End user activity -> Full.

      You can find more information in the Bitbucket Server 7.0 release notes and Advanced Auditing documentation.

      Original message
      My company works within the regulated space, and we have observed that comments can be deleted from Bitbucket Pull Requests possibly losing important documentary evidence. Besides having the ability to disable the deletion of comments as per related issue BSERV-8513 it would be highly desirable for Pull Request comment lifecyle events to be logged.

      Having reviewed https://confluence.atlassian.com/bitbucketserver/audit-events-in-bitbucket-server-776640423.html that lists the events logged by Bitbucket Server for a Pull Request there is currently nothing there relating to the logging of events relating to comments. At my company we believe that there should be.

      PullRequestEvent Fired at different points in the pull request lifecycle (declined, merged, opened, reopened, rescoped [code updated], updated, approved, unapproved, participants updated).

      The reasoning here, is that Pull Request evidence can help show the design reasoning behind how an implementation took shape. It is important evidence, it should be considered a potential quality record, just like a Jira issue is and this is why we need similar full logging for pull requests and their comments.
