Feature not updated on successful master


We're using the branch updater functionality in Bamboo. However, according to the documentation, the master branch (when successful) should be merged into all feature branches.

This is not the case. Our feature branch is failing, but that shouldn't matter in my opinion.

The license we're using: SEN-2207378

Branch that should be updated:


Hope to hear from you soon.

Hi, Hans.

Did you follow the instructions here?



Also, that documentations says:

  • Optionally, changes from the feature branch can be automatically merged back to the "master" (e.g. trunk, default or mainline branch) when the build succeeds.

It seems that it must succeed. Does it merge them if they succeed?

Kind regards,

Hi Jaime,

Yes I did follow those instructions.

As said in the question, I do not want to merge my feature branch into the master branch. My question is:

Is the merging into the feature branch done when the master is green or when the master AND the feature branch is green?

The reason I'm asking is because I think it's the latter one whereas the documentation states that it's the first.
