Is there a way to kick off a child dependent plan regardless of the parent build being successful?

plan1 will run a set of tests.  The plan will fail due to some tests failing.  

plan2 will collect pass/fail status of tests run in plan1.


I would like plan1 to trigger plan2 regardless of failing status.  Is this possible?

Hey Jared,

You could use the below plugin and setup a trigger on Plan 2 that triggers after Plan 1 failure:

You'd still need to maintain the dependency that is triggering Plan 2 after successful builds in addition to it.

If you wanted to rely on native Bamboo functionality only, I would suggest setting up a Script Task as a Final Task (gets executed even if previous jobs fail) in your plan that triggers Plan 2 via Bamboo's REST API.


curl --user ${bamboo.username}:${bamboo.password} -X POST http://bamboo:8085/rest/api/latest/queue/PROJ-PLAN-KEY

I've also included the an existing feature request which is relevant to your requirement, if you'd like to keep tabs on it:

Hope this helps. :)
