Deploy trigger based on regex-created build branch?

I have my build plan setup to auto create branches that match a regex (such as 'release-xx' or 'hotfix-xx') however I don't see how I can automatically deploy those branches which Bamboo is adding via regex? The Deploy triggers on successful builds seems to require an exact branch name...

Well, Bamboo doesn't allow automated creation/deploying of Deployments for new branches. I'm not really sure how your workflow works - can you provide more details on that?

I think that creating/deploying automatically would be a mess: these deployments would overwrite deployments from other branches in an uncontrollable way.

We have this need for NuGet packages.

We want to be able to trigger deployments for alpha (development), beta (release/*), and production (master) channels.

We're stuck on the beta releases for this very issue.

I have the same problem/question. I would like to add a trigger for an automatically created plan branch.

Our team is working as described in the GIT workflow:

We need it for the release branches. There is only one active release branch at a time. The plan branch is created automatically, and any pushes to it should trigger a deployment. For now, we are adding a trigger for each release manually. But it would be handy to have this automated.


It would be nice to be able to use a wildcard/regex in the trigger configuration, as it is possible for the creation of plan branches. Something like "release/\d+.\d+" or "release/*"


Kind Regards
