Bamboo Task Definition for Branches

Hi team,


I want to run a different task when I'm executing builds from another branch than `master`.

I have a default list of tasks that runs every time a commit is made on `master` and that works great.

Now, I started to test the "Branches" feature and I would like to be able to run a different Task for all branches. Do you know to be a possibility or should I create a new plan in this situation?


Thank you

Hi @catalinvr ,

If you want to have different tasks to be executed based on branch, then you should convert all subsequent task of "Source Code Checkout" to a Script task, in which you could evaluate if the repository branch is master or not - bamboo.planRepository.<position>.branchName

However, it would be preferable and best practises creating a different plan.

Kind regards,

There is a Suggestion - Bamboo should support divergent plan branches, with its status In Progress. Whilst this feature is not ready, previous comment should be used.

Thank you so much @Rafael Pinto Sperafico  :)
