How can i control how frequently a plan is triggered ?

Hi all,


I have 352 bamboo plan building small component of an application.

We are currently setting up dependecies inside all of them to rebuild the entire tree each time a component is modified. 

The issue we're afraid of is too trigger the main top component too often and to keep building it constantly.


Is there a way to have a tempo to build it only every 30 minutes and not more for exemple ?


Thanks for your input.

Hello @thomas_ricaud,

You could make use of Cron-based scheduling and set a cron to run a plan / branch every 30min, for instance.

Regarding on dependencies, perhaps you should consider playing around with the feature on a testing environment before applying the configuration in production, and once you are happy with the workflow, the you could "migrate" those settings into production.

Kind regards,


so my plan at the "top" of the food chain should not be triggered by any parent plan and i should have a schedule triggering on my "top" plan


but is there a way to have the parent/child triggering relationship and to prevent the "top" plan to run more often than once every 30 minutes ?


that way if there is zero commit during 5hours there is no useless run of the plan.

Then, you should be looking at Polling the repository for changes in which you have the option to trigger a build only when changes to repository are made. Please, notice in this triggering option you have Periodically (every X seconds) and Scheduled (defined by cron).
