Forcing child plan to get latest revision from svn


Is there an option to force child plan to get the latest revision from svn? I am checking code in parent plan and want child plan to get the latest from svn.

You need to trick Bamboo into thinking these plans use different repositories - for example, by using IP instead of the host name as repository address in the child plan. Or you could specify the port number explicitely in one of the plans:



I tried the options but it is not working. It is still checking out the old revision

<label id="fieldLabelArea_bambooVersion" for="bambooVersion">I am using following version:</label>
<label id="fieldLabelArea_bambooVersion" for="bambooVersion">Version </label>3.2
<label id="fieldLabelArea_bambooBuildNumber" for="bambooBuildNumber">Build Number </label>2600

Which Bamboo version is that?

No. I only see following line

Updated source code to revision: <same revision number as parent>

Do you get the line: "Detected that parent plan XXX using the same source. Updating to" in the build log?

Depending on your use case, maybe adding a script task set to "inline script" that does svn up would do the trick?

Just to make sure: what do you mean by child and parent plans? You have two jobs in separate plans linked together with plan dependencies?

That is correct. I have 2 seperate plans linked via dependency.

Based on my experience, having a build plan commit to the repository is almost always a reciipe for trouble, and something that I rarely, if ever, allow anyone to request in the build system I manage. If there is any way to avoid making commits during a build, I would urge you to do so.

I agree with you. This is a custom solution for one project and I am unable to find any other way at this time.

Options given below do not work. And I couldn't find any other way to make this work.
