BAMBOO get commits that triggered build

andreiverdes August 4, 2015


Is there a way to get the git log with the commits that triggered the build from the command line inside the build agent?

I'm building an Android app with gradle and push it to Crashlytics alongside with a changelog.txt file. I would like to add those commits to a changelog.txt per build so I would know what that build is about.


PS: Sorry if I'm not offering enough details, it's my first question here laugh

If you're submitting things via a script, you can use bamboo variables to get the build's revision and get the commit log and write it to a file.

Here's an example using git:

git log ${bamboo.planRepository.previousRevision}..${bamboo.planRepository.revision} --oneline > ./commits.txt


Other bamboo variables:

I tried following but this say "log: command not found"

gitlog=git log ${bamboo.planRepository.previousRevision}..${bamboo.planRepository.revision} 

What am I doing wrong here ? June 24, 2019

The variable $bamboo.planRepository.revision  only revers to the commit hash of the default repository in the plan. not the commit that actually triggered the plan in a multiple repository plan configuration.  in my scenario the actual variable for revision is 


is there a variable for the repo name or the exact commit that triggered the plan without having to figure out the repository position. ?

Hi, Andrei.


I'm not sure if you can get this information from the agent within the instance, but this information is available under the 'Commits' tab in Bamboo itself in the build information, if that's helpful.

Kind regards,

Any REST API for that?
