Automatic plan-branching for multi-repository plans


We are evaluating Bamboo to see if we can use it as our CI-server and it seems like a really good product, and we like the plan branching feature in particular.

We have a multi-repository product (repos in Git) and we'd like to react to new branches on any of the repos to trigger our plan build. But it seems that automatic plan branching only happens for a single repository (the default one for the plan I guess)?

Can you share some light on this?

Hello Per,

I think the best answer would be the link to issue. I reckon that issue reflects exactly what you're looking for in Bamboo - consider 'voting' on that issue. The summary is that Bamboo can't yet plan-branch automatically over multi-repository plans.


Hi Piotr,

Thanks for the quick reply!

OK, I see. Thanks for the link - now I have voted. Now that I know that it's not there yet, I'll try to come up with some other way of architecturing what we want.

Best regards,

Hi Piotr,

I don't think this question is related to .

Let me explain :  is about checkouting on all the repositories the branch specified by the branch plan.

This is something we can easily workaround via a script that run git checkout on branch $bamboo_planRepository_branch in all our repo

But this question is about triggering a branch plan for all branch created on any repositories. And for now, it is only possible to have branch plan automatically triggered on the default repository. Is there a solution for that?


Thanks in advance
