How to run part of a Build Plan nightly


I'm on Atlassian Bamboo version 4.4.5 build 3507 - 27 Mar 13

Is it possible to break up a build plan as follows:

- run mvn clean install on each commit

- run mvn clean install sonar:sonar nightly at 1am

Not natively, there are a few hacks to get this done though.

  1. Set the second half up as a manual stage, have a process (Bamboo or not) with a 1am timed trigger to search the API or DB for last build with unrun manual stages and trigger through the API.
  2. Setup your regular trigger and an additional timed trigger in Bamboo, use scripts to notice the time and run your additional setup (this can be tricky and ugly).
  3. Similar to #2, have a process with a 12:58 schedule either write a Bamboo variable, environmental variable, or file/db with a "run" flag and setup #2 to look for that flag and reset it.
  4. Separate your process into 2 plans with two different triggers.

All of these except #1 force it to happen every single day (or whatever trigger). #1 as described focuses on the last build which would have been triggered by whatever else and checks to see if the manual stage was run already. This is what I use for nightly automated tests so I don't run the tests if there were no changes in the day.

Raised issue:

I'll probably go with option #4 for now.
