How to get bamboo revision # to change on a build for a plan

Chris Johnston May 1, 2018

We have a bamboo plan using a git repository -- The plan is configured to check out master by default.

During the plan, it merges another branch into master, updates the version and commits a new tag.  This makes new commits into master.

What I'd like is the plan summary page once it is complete, to reference this new git commit #. 

However, regardless of what I try, it only ever references what initially triggered the plan.  Because of this, the list of commits and linked jira issues all reference the old version on master instead of the new version that was just created/merged.  So for example if this is created releases (release 1, release 2, release 3, etc) then the summary page for the release 2 build, contains all the info for release 1 (because it points to the release 1 git revision #), and once release 3 is done, then that page points to release 2, etc.

I've tried making a second child plan that is triggered at the end, but this child plan carries over and checks out the previous revision too and will not update to the latest.

Hi Chris,

The revision numbers are generated on the initial pull at the start of the Plan. This means that changing the revision number is not currently possible with the way Bamboo functions.

Is there any suggestion on how to do this?  I imagine multiple people in the community do merges as part of their build plan and want the build pages to indicate the actual set of changes based on the commits after that merge.

Since child plans inherent the revision number from the parent -- I was unable to split it into two plans to get the information correct.  Is there some other way to achieve this?

Were you ever able to come to a good solution here? I also am experiencing the same dilemma 

Chris Johnston November 11, 2020

Nope.  Bamboo still works this way, and I could not find a way around it.  As such, we just ignore this aspect of Bamboo.  It's a broken feature.
