How can I configure a project to allow only one of its plans to run at a time?

I'm new to Bamboo and have been given the task of preventing a build plan from running in a project if any of the project's other build plans are running. For example:

The project has 4 plans: A, B, C, & D. Plan C is common to A and B and A and B are configured with the parent C dependency and C is configured with A & B children. Plan D is not dependent on any of the other plans. All plans are triggered to build upon any git source check-in. However, only one of the 3 related builds (A, B or C) can run at any given time else the builds fail. I believe their sequential building is handled by the dependency triggers, but it is not handled if, say, 2 of the 3 plans are kicked off by near simultaneous check-ins.

We're using Bamboo 4.4.

Hi Craig,

Maybe you're looking for Plan Build Dependencies?

I hope this helps!

Thanks Felipe. I previously read that section and verified the build plans were setup with the child blocking if the parent had changes or was building or queued. However, I requested more information and feedback from the developer who reported the issue to make sure I'm not misunderstanding their problem.
