Bitbucket API bad request while trying to merge

This is my code:

$url = "***/***/pullrequests/35/merge";

$curl1 = curl_init();   

curl_setopt($curl1, CURLOPT_HTTPAUTH, CURLAUTH_BASIC ); 
curl_setopt($curl1, CURLOPT_USERPWD, "***:***");
curl_setopt($curl1, CURLOPT_HEADER, true); 
curl_setopt($curl1, CURLOPT_HTTPHEADER, array('Content-Type: application/json'));
curl_setopt($curl1, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
curl_setopt($curl1, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
curl_setopt($curl1, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
curl_setopt($curl1, CURLOPT_POST, true);

echo curl_exec($curl1);

Thats the response:

  • Hg-git stopped working for multiple branches
  • Git error: “fatal: The remote end hung up unexpectedly”
  • Github: show tags in commits history
  • working with bitbucket and native android development
  • How to copy full source without opening raw(bitbucket)
  • So “tags” for versions and “branches” for new features?
  • HTTP/1.1 400 BAD REQUEST Server: nginx/1.5.10 Date: Wed, 04 Mar 2015 06:03:15 GMT Content-Type: text/plain Content-Length: 11 Connection: keep-alive X-Served-By: app19 X-Render-Time: 0.0410010814667 Content-Language: de X-Static-Version: 572a80470390 Vary: Authorization, Accept-Language, Cookie X-Version: 1d224fb664b6 ETag: "825644f747baab2c00e420dbbc39e4b3" X-Request-Count: 27 X-Frame-Options: SAMEORIGIN Bad Request

    Why does this not work? (For safety reasons i replaced some informations with ***)

  • Git: make a branch as master on Github while keeping real master on BitBucket
  • JENKINS - Git Plugin not working as expected
  • Git and Bitbucket without SSH
  • Could not resolve host:; nodename nor servname provided, or not known
  • Store https passwords with cygwin's Git
  • Questionnaire/Checklist for Bitbucket Pullrequest reviewers

    You are missing the mandatory parameters for that particular endpoint which should be included in your request body.

    According to the API, those mandatory parameters are owner, repo_slug and pull_request_id.

    $request_body = array(
      'owner'           => 'account-name',
      'repo_slug'       => 'repo-name',
      'pull_request_id' => 35

    Because you specified application/json as your Content-Type, you need to json_encode the array from above:

    curl_setopt($curl1, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, json_encode($request_body));


    As a side note, you could use bitbucket-api library, which can help you to interact with Bitbucket API in a more easy way.

    Accepting a pull request using that library, looks something like this:

    $pull = new Bitbucket\API\Repositories\PullRequests();
    // set your login credentials here
      new \Bitbucket\API\Http\Listener\BasicAuthListener('username', 'password')
    $pull->accept($account_name, $repo_slug, 35);

    You can read more in the docs.
