How to properly set branch plan trigger for Pull Request?

I have a Project on Bamboo, let's call it A. Within A, I have 2 Build plans:

  • Master Build Plan
  • PR Build Plan

Both build plans have the same repository and with master branch being the default branch.

Master Build Plan plan branch option is set to Manually so it never creates other branch plans and the trigger is set to repository change.

PR Build Plan plan branch option is set to 'When pull request is created', so it only create branches related to PRs.

If on PR Build Plan, I disable the repository trigger, if I update my PR, it doesn't trigger a new build. If I enable it, it triggers when PR is updated but after merging the PR into master branch, PR Build Plan runs on the master branch, that is the default branch of the repository, which is not desirable.

Is there a way to keep the PR Build Plan triggering when the PR is updated without running for master branch when master gets updated?

Hey Luiz,

Try disabling the "master" of your PR Build Plan from Plan Configuration >> Actions >> Disable Plan.

Branch / Pull Request detection and triggering still works even if the master plan configuration is disabled, but master won't trigger. :)

Hope this helps.



Thank you.

This option should be set by default when 'create plan branch' is set to 'When pull request is created', though.
