How to handle multiple repos with a single plan in bamboo?

Alok Singh October 16, 2017

Hi, I am dealing with many repositories where I want to create a single Bamboo plan. I could connect all the repositories and I want them to trigger build based on check-in into a specific repo. But bamboo server checks out all the repository when starting the build. Is it even possible in Bamboo?

Hi, can you please describe use case.

It's possible to use several repositories in Bamboo plan. It's possible to configure trigger to start build only when changes happened in some of plan repositories, not all of them. Does it answer your question?

Hi Alexey, Thanks for replying. I have configured more than 100 java repositories to my build plan.  But every time something changes in one of the repo it checks-out all the repositories. How do I configure that sort of trigger. Can you give me some pointers?

What kind of trigger do you need/use? There's Repository polling trigger which has checkbox for every repository you added to plan. You can uncheck some repositories if you don't want to run build on this repository change. At the same time Bamboo will checkout code from all repositories if you have checkout task for each of 100 repo.

What checkout tasks do you use?

Does your plan require source code from all 100 repositories?

It's really massive configuration, hope you use Bamboo Specs to manage it

Hi Alexey, That's where the problem I have. Even though I have repo polling trigger enabled but it checksout all the repos I have in checkout task. I don't want the server to be inflated with all the unnecessary repos even though I clean the directory after every build. But checking out more than hundred repos would be highly unacceptable.

Checkout the 100 repos in separate plans (which trigger automatically on a new commit).

You can then still have your "parent" or "uber" plan which downloads artifacts from those other 100 repos/plans.

Hi, I am also using single BAmboo plan which has 10 repository and 10 branches. But i need to run each and every branch individually. But everytime only default repository getting build trigger. How to configure that what branch i am running that repository need to get executed.

Same issue here.

Our use case
We're having hundreds of different npm packages, each in separate repositories. We're publishing them into our own private npm registry. We want a package/repository to be published automatically on post-commit to master.

The best would be if I would be able to attach a Bamboo plan to a Stash project, so the plan would run for all contained repositories.

Hi Vincze,


Thanks for responding could you please share me some sample plan configuration for the same. It will be helpful to verify and proceed further.


Waiting for your kind response.
