Bamboo Specs scanning clobbers Build Status screen

I am on Bamboo 6.8.1

I am using a mono-repo with 200 components in it using change detection to limit what change triggers each plan.

This means I have 200 PlanSpec*.java files which get processed by the Bamboo specs scanner.

If I change one of those Java Specs files, the scanner detects the change and compiles all 200 specs.

I could live with that if that was all it did but here is the issue it causes.

On my Build Dashboard page (All Build Plans), I have a mixture of successful/failed builds.

After the scanner runs, they all turn green with the Reason field set to "Specs configuration updated"

So, I can not see the "real" Build failures anymore.

Thiis would be fine if I could filter the results to ignore "Specs configuration updated" and/or show only those builds where the "real" build failed"

Any ideas on:

  • Only trigger Spec compilation for the changed spec only
  • A way of filtering Build results

Internally Bamboo updates plan only if Java specs was modified. It improves performance of heavy operation to run massive update of 200 plans. But then it has to report execution and Specs result attached to every plan was a decision to improve visibility of this feature. 

Now when more and more people switch to this solution it doesn't look so wise. We're working to improve user experience and detach build result from specs result so it's not appear at dashboard anymore.

As I see our support engineer already created issue for tracking our work at it -
