Bamboo REST API: List all results including branches

Is there a way to list the latest build results for each plan and also include branch builds?

I.e we are currently using the following endpoint ../latest/result.json?expand.results.result, but it does not include branch builds.

So after digging through your API, we were pleasantly surprised to find the following:

/rest/api/latest/plan.json?expand=plans.plan.branches.branch.latestResult

The ...branch.latestResult node actually contains the build results for every branch of the plan (except for master, strangely), which means we can use this call to get branch results and then use /rest/api/lastest/result.json for the master branch build results.

Now, we could have saved lots of time if this had only been documented in the API documentation.

If every single path of every expand option was documentated the manual would be unreadable. If you really want to do it one call you could use /rest/api/latest/result.json?expand=results.result.plan.branches.branch.latestResult you might also need to include "&max-result=#" where "#" is the number of plans you have/want to include per call.

It would be nice if at least the main paths had been documented.

The main documentation is severely outdated (https://developer.atlassian.com/display/BAMBOODEV/Bamboo+REST+Resources)

The more detailed, recommended 5.0 API documentation (https://docs.atlassian.com/bamboo/REST/5.0-SNAPSHOT/) is still in SNAPSHOT and if you click "expand" for most of the resources, nothing happens.

Thanks for the quick reply. We have more than 100 builds; this would mean we would have to 1) query bamboo for all plan names and branches. 2) query each plan and each branch for its status. That is a really cumbersome solution.

What we are trying to achieve is to create a simple wallboard with the following requirements: (due to the lack of features in the current Bamboo wallboard)

  • First show list of recently failing builds, including branch builds
  • Then show list of recently successful builds, including branch builds
  • Show currently builds currently in progress (not supported in Bamboo REST API AFAIK)

Have I understood it correctly if there is currently no REST API endpoint that delivers build results including branches in bulk (without having to iterate manually across all resources ourselves)?

Do you have any plans for supporting this?

Hello Odin,

You can find more details about this call on this page: [Retrieve the build results for a specific plan in a project|https://docs.atlassian.com/bamboo/REST/5.0-SNAPSHOT/#d2e593].

1. Select the plan for which you want to get the branch status from the dashboard.

2. Select the branch and double check the "{projectKey}-{buildKey}/branch/{branchName}"

3. Then with a call similar to the following, you will be able to get the build status of the branch:

http://localhost:8085/bamboo530/rest/api/latest/result/TPO-TPO1

In which "TPO-TPO1" is "PROJKEY-PLANKEY/BRANCHNUMBER[NAME]".

You can also add the build number at the end to get information for a specific build on that branch:

http://localhost:8085/bamboo530/rest/api/latest/result/TPO-TPO1-2

"2" is the build number in this example.

Hope this helps!

Best regards,

Sepideh
