How do you get a github pull request to trigger a Bamboo build ?

I am trying to trigger a bamboo build whenever a pull request is opened. I have found few references , but looks like there is no solution to it. Has anybody got this working ?

I found a way thats pretty simple. The rest API of Bamboo allows you to specify the vcsBranch. So sending a PUT request to this Bamboo URL triggers a Bamboo to create a new branch and start a build:


/rest/api/latest/plan/OZW-PRTST/branch/' + pr + '.json?vcsBranch=refs/pull/' + pr + '/head'

Where "pr" is the Pull Request Number.

I have written a simple OpenFAAS function to take a GitHub Pull Request WebHook and Trigger Bamboo to build the PR here:

You will need to modify the hostname in bamboo-pr-trigger/handler.js and setup bamboo-username and bamboo-password secrets on your openFAAS server and combined with a updated bamboo-github-status addon it works nicely (see my fork here:


See here for a real life demo:

but I haven't tried to implement it yet.
