BuildAgentRequirementFilter does not filter agents

Dear All, 


I'd like to set up a bamboo plugin that implements BuildAgentRequirementFilter module. Unfortunately, when I override filter function, it seems that the Collection<BuildAgent> agents returns unfiltered lists rather than a collection of agents filtered by requirements. Please see below code as an example:

public Collection<BuildAgent> filter(CommonContext buildContext, Collection<BuildAgent> agents, MinimalRequirementSet requirementSet) {
agents.toString(); //return all available agents instead of filtered agents
return agents;

Is it the expected behavior? if yes, is there any way for me to get the list of filtered agents based on requirements?

Thanks in advance.

It's expected behaviour.

Why do you need filtered agents? Filter the agents based on your criteria, let Bamboo filter them by requirements afterwards.

Hmm understood... I was a bit confused as the behavior is different on Bamboo version < 6.9.x where the agents are already filtered by Bamboo requirements before we filter it further with our criteria.

We made this change, because in our experience, plugin-provided filtering is (usually) faster than filtering by requirements, so it makes sense to apply it first.

@Marcin Gardias  thanks for the explanation...  by the way, where can I find this kind of information (about changes) in the future?
