How to checkout only the changed files from SVN Repository using Bamboo


Part of the automating a process, we're required to download only the newly checked in files from the SVN.

As of now, the bamboo checks out all the code within the specified repository.
How can we download only the newly checked in or changed files from the SVN after the previous build?

Also, for deployment plans, if we want to deploy build# 10 after build#5, how can we get only the files checked in between build#5 and build#10?


Thanks in advance

Hey Sravan,


Bamboo does not currently have the ability to pull only changes from any version control system. Though this could be achieved via a series of script tasks which manually query SVN for the changed files, then pulls said files.

Regarding your second question, I believe an external script or batch file would be needed to achieve this. First, build times would need to be manually correlated with the SVN commit times, as Bamboo does not track the changes to the repositories. Then, you could generate a list of newly created files based on the time window. You could then use this list in Bamboo script task to manually pull the files.

Best Regards,
