Disable re-build option

Samuel Chow September 10, 2018

Is there a way to disable the option of re-building an existing build in a plan? The plan is currently set up to be manually triggered and I don't want users to re-build a plan even if it fails; they should start a new build.

Essentially I want to disable this feature:

Bamboo plans run when they are triggerred. The types of available triggers are explained here:

To avoid Bamboo running a plan you can remove all defined triggers and leave only the option to trigger the plan manually from the UI. Then let the users of Bamboo know that they should not run the plan manually.

Also make sure that the plan was not configured to be triggered by the successful build of another plan.

Hi Simon,

This didn't answer my question. Possibly a mistake on my part for not giving more details. I've updated my answer to provide the scenario.

" Thank you for the clarification. There is no way to completely disable the functionality.

What you can do is to hide that menu entry in the UI so the users will not see it anymore. However if a user knows the endpoint to call and the arguments she will be able to rerun failed builds. (In your unmodified instance go mouse over that menu entry and your browser will display in the status bar the request URL; that is what the user should know to be able to rerun failed builds.)

To hide the menu entry edit the file <Bamboo install directory>/atlassian-bamboo/lib/menus.ftl and comment out line 712.  The line would look like:

[#-- [@ui.displayLink id="restartBuild_${resultsSummary.planResultKey}" titleKey=buttonLabel href=restartPlanUrl showIcon=false inList=true mutative=true/] --]

Observe that to comment out the line you can use [#-- ... --] construct.

I hope this helps.


Note that if you reinstall Bamboo or upgrade it the menus.ftl file will be overriden so you will have to apply the comment again.

Works like a charm! Thank you very much!!!

Just to help someone that has got to do the same thing in the future, I would like to add that line 730 of this same file declares another link, but for Successful builds. I have also commented it to disable Rerun at all (via UI, as Simon said).

[#-- [@ui.displayLinkForAUIDialog id="rerunBuild_${immutablePlan.key}"
href=editRerunBuild/] --]

Hope this helps!

I tried this and it removed the rebuild button for all jobs under the same stage, even if some jobs passed and some failed.  We still want to see the option "Rerun failed/incomplete jobs only" for the failed jobs. It seems that commenting out that line does not cover multiple jobs in one stage.  This would be a big impact for integration builds, since most integration system tests are running multiple jobs in one single stage. Is there a way to only remove the rebuild option for passed jobs but keep it for failed jobs within the same stage?
