How to deploy on a scheduled trigger only if there is a new build?

Richard Flores July 9, 2019

I want to schedule a nightly deployment only if there is a new build. Is there a way to do this? 

We tried this, but the release plan ends-up redeploying the latest build. Not exactly what we want-- if the build is not new, then don't deploy. Is this possible?

Hi @Richard Flores ,

Thank you for your inquire.

I want to schedule a nightly deployment only if there is a new build. Is there a way to do this?

Yes, it is possible by running a build nightly that will automatically trigger the deployment. If your build is consuming a repository (Source Code Checkout task) you can add a trigger to your plan that will Poll the repository for changes based on a schedule.

If Bamboo detects a change in the source code, a build of your plan is triggered. In this way you may end-up with what you called as a new build.

Once you have that in place, you can go to your Deployment Environment and setup Triggers for deployment environments.

You could also work with REST API calls and scripting, automating the way Bamboo will run builds and deployments. Those scripts could then be called from Jira, Bitbucket Server, Terminal/Command Prompt or any other.

However, getting back to your initial inquire, there is - Scheduled deployments should only run if the latest version is different than what is actually deployed in that environment in Atlassian Bamboo's issue tracker.

Please, feel free to add any comments and/or become a watcher so you can get its latest updates.

Kind regards,
