How is deployed artifacts handled by expiration logic?

I have a number of artifacts (unit test results, system test results) in build plans and I am using deployment plans.

Will the artifacts in the build plans expire if an artifact from that specific build is deployed to any environment?

I would like Bamboo to never expire the build results that are actively deployed.

Hello Johan,

According to this document the artifact expiry date is calculated this way:

  • If there is no release associated with the build result, then use the build result creation date.
  • Otherwise, if the build result has never been deployed, then use the creation date for the latest release that refers to it.
  • Otherwise, use the creation date for the latest deployment.

If the age of the build or deployment artifact is equal to or greater than the Expire after age, then it is deleted when the expiry event occurs (assuming artifacts are configured for deletion).

In that same document it is also mentioned that if you want to keep specific build results, regardless of expiry date, you can add labels to your builds and specify these labels in the Keep builds with the following labels field.

If this answer was helpful, please allow me to ask you to mark my answer as accepted in order to have it in the top of the thread, also helping other customers.

Thanks in advance!

Kind regards,
Felipe Kraemer
