Bitbucket Triggering Builds On Non-code Updates

We've been seeing builds get triggered when there are updates to a pull request in Bitbucket (e.g. the description). Is there any way to change update the project settings / appveyor.yml so that builds are only triggered when there are actually code changes?

    Hi Chris,

    On General tab of project settings you can check Do not build on "Pull request" events.

    If I check "Do not build on "Pull request" events", won't that disable pull
    requests altogether? I would like to run builds on pull requests, just not
    when updates are made to the pull request itself (e.g. the description of
    the pull request) instead of on the underlying code (e.g. a commit that
    updates the pull request). Is there a way to do this?

    I see. It looks like there is only one event (pullrequest:updated) on all PR updates (both commits and PR details):

    ** Send alerts to know when important tests fail

    ** Specify Criteria for Alerts

    Before you could send alerts when a test run passed, failed, or completed. Now you have the ability to specify a criteria, giving you more control over which test runs send alerts. For example, you can now match on environment, branch name, or even pass/fail counts.
    Visit Testery (

    Bitbucket integration

    You can now use Bitbucket not only for login but also as a source for tests. Test runs will now be associated with specific Bitbucket commits.

    ** Opsgenie Alerts

    You can also configure Testery to send test run results to Opsgenie. This pairs well with criteria-based alerts and is great for monitoring situations (e.g. create an alert in Opsgenie when more than 5 smoke tests fail in production).
