Bamboo - Why are change detection options not working for linked repository?

We're on Bamboo version 5.15.7 build 51521. I have a linked repository on Bitbucket Server that just contains some helper functions used by many builds. I don't want any builds to trigger based on changes to this linked repo. However, we've been unable to find any config that prevents dozens of builds from being triggered. 

Shouldn't this setup prevent builds from being triggered on changes to this repo:


I've tried with .+ as well and only with the file pattern. Any suggestions?

Have tested this settings work fine in Bamboo 5.15.7.

Maybe your Build Plan is configured with Plan Repository (that have the same name) instead of Linked Repository.

Check if the repository can be edited at Plan Configuration > Repositories . If yes, it is not a Linked Repository. You will have to edit this Plan Repository in the Plan Level.

Thanks @Foong. These are definitely linked repositories in the plans. When I look at them, they are not editable from the build plan and have this at the top.



All of the changes come from merges to master from feature branches. We are on Bitbucket Server 4.14.4.

In Bamboo Build Result, is it showing merge commit in the Commits tab?

If yes, refer to this bug report

@Foong - Yes, it is showing the merge commit in the Commits tab. I'll watch that bug for updates.


Thank you
