Getting child plans of each parent plan in Bamboo via REST api?


Version of Bamboo is 6.4.0 rc1.

 When we are using REST API request to get child plans of the parent plan, we are recieving the entire list of existing plans.

Example of request:
http: // localhost: 8085 / bamboo / rest / api / latest / dependency / search / ESBDLV9-TEST / child? searchTerm =
But in our case we would like to get only child plans. What would be the correct REST API call in our case?

For information here is the plan with dependencies from the Java specs view.

public class PlanSpec {
    public Plan plan () {
        Final Plan Plan = new Plan (new Project ()
                .oid (new BambooOid ("1113k510uyv42")))
                .key (new BambooKey ("ESBDLV9"))
                .name ("ESB deliveries 9.0")
                .description ("ESB deliveries 9.0"),
            new BambooKey ("TEST"))
            .triggers (new RepositoryPollingTrigger ())
            .planBranchManagement (new PlanBranchManagement ()
                    .delete (new BranchCleanup ())
                    .notificationForCommitters ())
            .dependencies (new Dependencies ()
                    .childPlans (new PlanIdentifier ("ESB9", "IBPORTAL9"),
                        new PlanIdentifier ("ESB9", "BSCASHDESK")))
            .forceStopHungBuilds ();
        return plan;
    public PlanPermissions planPermission () {
        final PlanPermissions planPermission = new PlanPermissions (new PlanIdentifier ("ESBDLV9", "TEST"))
            .permissions (new Permissions ()

        return planPermission;
    public static void main (String ... argv) {
        // By default credentials are read from the '.credentials' file.
        BambooServer bambooServer = new BambooServer ("http: // localhost: 8080 / bamboo");
        final PlanSpec planSpec = new PlanSpec ();
        final Plan plan = planSpec.plan ();
        bambooServer.publish (plan);
        final PlanPermissions planPermission = planSpec.planPermission ();
        bambooServer.publish (planPermission);

Hi Timoschenko,

Thanks for your question!

The reason you are getting the entire list of the plans is that the API response is expected to give all plans that would be available to use as a child dependency.

So if we don't specify a search term, then all plans that are available to use as a child dependency will be returned.

For your specific requirement, there is already an open feature request which you can access here -



Hi Robhit,

I have child build that is called "ESBDLV9-ATEST". 

How can I compose the API call in order to get the last parent build name as the screenshot below.

How to use searchTerm correctly.
