In Bamboo, how can you determine which git commit generated a given build artifact?

I want work backwards from a build artifact (eg: .hex file from compiler output)  generated by Bamboo and find the associated .git commit reference used to build this artifact.

Hi @Phillip Matthews,

You could iterate over the JOB that published the artifact by consuming a REST API endpoint{projectKey}-{buildKey}-{buildNumber : ([0-9]+)|(latest)} [GET]

As an example, you could run:

# replace USERNAME with a user who has VIEW permissions over given plan
# replace http://localhost:8085 with Bamboo's Base URL
# replace PROJ-PLAN-JOB1-1 with buildResultKey. Please refer to Bamboo Variables - - for more explanation

curl -k -u USERNAME \
-H 'Content-type: application/json' \
-H 'Accept: application/json' \
-X GET http://localhost:8085/rest/api/latest/result/PROJ-PLAN-JOB1-1?expand=vcsRevisions&expand=artifacts

As result, you will find the commit information under vcsRevisions.vcsRevision[max-result - 1].vcsRevisionKey:

    "vcsRevisions": {
        "size": 1,
        "expand": "vcsRevision",
        "vcsRevision": [
                "repositoryId": 1605634,
                "repositoryName": "My Repository",
                "vcsRevisionKey": "defd4d397004415f683af6f356f59d77c04a9a10"
        "start-index": 0,
        "max-result": 1

and the artifacts available to build result under artifact[1] onward.

    "artifact": [
            "name": "Build log",
            "link": {
                "href": "http://localhost:8085/download/PROJ-PLAN-JOB1/build_logs/PROJ-PLAN-JOB1-1.log",
                "rel": "self"
            "producerJobKey": "PROJ-PLAN-JOB1-1",
            "shared": false
            "name": "TXT",
            "link": {
                "href": "http://localhost:8085/browse/PROJ-PLAN-1/artifact/shared/TXT/",
                "rel": "self"
            "producerJobKey": "PROJ-PLAN-JOB1-1",
            "shared": true,
            "size": 31,
            "prettySizeDescription": "31 bytes"

Please, refer to the following documentation for further information:

Hope the information provided help you somehow.

Kind regards,

There's build variable planRepository.1.revision which contains revision hash. You can use it to generate artifact name or content
