Jenkins builds using webhook when code is pushed to a different branch


We are using bitbucket cloud and webhooks for automating builds with jenkins.

our branches in bb are using a fork structure for reasons implemented for quite some time now.


Project → {branch} master
→ {branch} develop
→ {branch} test

within jenkins the git Resfspec is set to “+refs/heads/develop:refs/remotes/origin/develop”
and under the Branches to build, the branch specifier is set to “*/develop”

the webhook is triggered when code is pushed to the “test” branch and jenkins builds the project. even though the branch specifier is set to only build when code is pushed to the “develop” branch.

did i configure something incorrectly?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

under the source code management, i have the repo url and specified the branch i want to build which is “*/develop”

The webhook in bitbucket is
