Hi @koteswararao,

Good question!
First of all, I would like to make it clear that this is an Atlassian labs plugin.

(...)The apps are often developed in conjunction with Atlassian hack-a-thons and ShipIt days and are provided to you completely “as-is”, with all bugs and errors, and are not supported by Atlassian.(...)

Reference: Atlassian Labs | Atlassian Marketplace

How this plugin works

When installed in your instance (thought Admin > Manage apps > Find new apps ), every build task will have the following checkbox added to its configuration section:

When checked this will allow two possible configurations:

  1. Select which user should run the build as a condition for this task to run

  2. Select which plan variable of global variable will be checked to decide if this task will run or not

⚠️This will not work with injected variables, but only with plan or global ones.
⚠️⚠️The name of the variable does not include bamboo at the beginning.
e.g. the variable bamboo.planRepository.1.branchName should be added as planRepository.1.branchName.

The example of configuration shared will only run the task if the branch name starts with bug or feature.


There is no notification when the task is not run, but in the build logs you will see something like:

simple 13-Jun-2019 15:29:56 Found conditional task: com.atlassian.bamboo.plugins.scripttask:task.builder.script . Skipping task because conditions were not met.

In this case, a script task was skipped because it was configured with a condition that was not met.

Please let me know if you have more questions on this matter.

I tried the conditional variable which I defined in the plan did not work either.  I defined the variable "deployment=true" and used it as "${deployment}" for the condition type and 

control new release as "${bamboo.deployment}==true"

The error that I got:

Condition com.atlassian.bamboo.plugins.bamboo-conditional-tasks:variableCondition wasn't met. Skipping task.




Hi @Ieng Lao

You should use just "deployment equals|match true".
