Bamboo launching dependent plans at the end of a stage?

I have a two stage plan where the second stage is set to "manual." In my plan's configuration, I set up depdendent plans to run when the plan successfully completes. However, I notice that the depedent plans run when the first stage completes which is not what I want.

Is this by design and it's my misunderstanding on how plans, stages, and dependencies work? This is on Bamboo v3.2 (I know, old version).

We have an issue open to ensure that dependencies are triggered only when all manual stages have been run successfully. Please watch and vote for the ticket to be notified when it has been completed.

Thanks James. Until then, I will just create a task at the end of my job that manually launches the depedent plans.

This sounds like an exclusive for me

Bamboo allows you to ensure that builds are only triggered manually or by parent builds of dependent builds.

Have you tried to update? It is no hassle ;}

There is something off then. For example, on the build page I see that Build 49 is stopped on a manual stage in the upper right-hand corner and yet it says that #49 was successful in the left hand side. And the dependant plans definitely kicked off after that first stage finished with the build reason of "This build occurred because it is a dependant of EXPERIMENT-FOO-49." Seems like a bug.
