I originally asked the question on Stack Overflow, but I think I can get a better answer here. Here's the original question:
I have a bamboo build with 2 stages: Build&Test and Publish. The way bamboo works, if Build&Test fails, Publish is not run. This is usually the way that I want things.
However, sometimes, Build&Test will fail, but I still want Publish to run. Typically, this is a manual process where even though there is a failing test, I want to push a button so that I can just run the Publish stage.
In the past, I had two separate plans, but I want to keep them together as one. Is this possible?
Short answer: no. If you want to run a stage, all prior stages have to finish successfully, sorry.
What you could do is to use the Quarantine functionality, but that involves re-running the failed job (in yet-unreleased Bamboo 4.1, you may have to press "Show more" on the build result screen to see the re-run button).
Another thing that could be helpful in such situation (but not for OP) is disabling jobs.
Can we add this functionality? This is pretty critical for our push towards Continuous Delivery. For instance, it would be great to use a Bamboo stage for deployments. If I have a Deploy stage, I can use it to deploy any build at any time for that product, and then I could leverage Bamboo's built-in logging and fail/success notifications.
G’day Community! As we gear up to introduce Bamboo Data Center to the world, we wanted to make sure that we shared a bit more about Bamboo, the product. Our team has put together an overview video ...
