Hello @Tom Adamo,

Please, refer to "Manual branch management" under

Kind regards,


This is creating separate plans for each branch, not plan branches, no?

Or you can refer "Automatic branch management" part the

Here is one example

Plan plan = new Plan(project, planName, planKey)
    .planRepositories(new GitRepository()
    .planBranchManagement(new PlanBranchManagement()

Feel free to ping me if you have other questions


I want to get them created, not configure the settings. This part (sort-of) answered my question:

@Tom Adamo Not really. The above code registers the plan to a specific branch pattern "^JIRA-[0-9]+", when a new branch matching that pattern is created, a branch in Bamboo is created for it. That is how it work.

Unless you want to create your branch in Bamboo manually when your branch in SCM is created everytime, then this is not what you want

I already have a repo with existing branches. So, I don't want to just configure the branch management. I want to actually create a plan branch from a script.

Your example will configure the plan to wait until a repo branch (JIRA-1) is created, then it will create the corresponding plan branch. But, I already have the repo branch (JIRA-1) created and I don't want to have to go into the UI and create the plan branch manually.
