Closing Pull Request

Why does drone CI ignore the closing of a pull request?
I need to remove temporary containers when the request is closed (merged or unmerged).
What are some ways to solve this problem? Thanks

There is a thread on this here - GITEA closed pull request ignored

I’m afraid this matches travis and circle CI’s functionality :frowning:

Yes, I’ve seen this thread, but it doesn’t provide answers to:

  1. Why is there no such functionality in Drone specifically? How is it tied to travis and circle?
  2. Are there other ways to implement

I haven’t looked into the closed PR example in particular but the reason is likely due to the differences in how git providers expose different events.

Drone uses GitHub - drone/go-scm: Package scm provides a unified interface to multiple source code management systems. which is an interface for the different SCM flavours - each SCM providers handles webhooks differently

e.g. according to the comment here - go-scm/webhook.go at 5f3c26274ccaf748b36ee9a29bf1363f37b7ee87 · drone/go-scm · GitHub - github does not have the concept of a merge event where as gitlab and bitbucket do.

And then we have to consider gitea, gogs, stash etc. etc. it’s all handled differently - and in some cases it may not be handled at all.

Have you tried the approach mentioned in the other thread?

trigger:
  event:
    - pull_request
  action:
    - closed

Which SCM are you using? it may be that your SCM does not have an action called closed.

Im using gitea + drone, gitea sends a webhook request to close the pull request, this is absolutely correct, drone ignores this request

I tried

trigger:
  event:
    - pull_request
  action:
    - closed

and

trigger:
  event:
    - pull_request

without action, it gives no results
