Can I change build status and add label post build using rest api?

I want to be able to change the build status and add a label after a build has finished. We have integration tests that get run and if they fail I want to be able to modify the build accordingly. How can I do this with the rest api?

Hi @schow-lmi3d

To create the label you could use a call like:

curl -X POST --user <USER>:<PASSWD> -H "Content-Type: application/json" -d '{"name":"new-label"}' <BAMBOO_URL>/rest/api/latest/result/<BUILD-KEY>/label

Regarding the change of build status. Are you trying to start, stop, rerun builds?

What would be the change in status that you mentioned?

We have integration tests that run on a separate plan. We want the integration to change the state of build plan if the integration plan fails. I want to know if there is a REST API to alter the build plan to fail.

We can't change the status of a build unless we run it again and it fails. Without knowing your environment I would risk saying that your integration test should be part of the build plan you want to change the status. This would make this plan fail when the integration test fails. 

Does that make sense?

Theres a few reasons why I didn't add integration tests as another stage in the plan. Thanks for the information.

Like Daniel Santos likes this

Maybe running them as a manual stage?
That would allow you to update a green build (green, but which still have stages to run) to a failed one in case that stage fails. Maybe your integration tests will take a lot to run and you don't want them to run every time... I'm just trying to provide you with a suggestion that may help you moving forward.
