Hi @lance_lyons

There is no public API to change this flag directly, but I see two other options that may help:

  1. Use Bamboo specs. In specs the following code part would disable the task:
    .stages(new Stage("Default Stage")
    .jobs(new Job("Default Job", new BambooKey("JOB1"))
    .tasks(new ScriptTask().enabled(false)
    More details about specs can be found here: Bamboo Specs - Atlassian Documentation.
  2. Use the Conditional tasks for Bamboo plugin to allow you enabling/disabling tasks based on variables or users running them.
    More details about this plugin can be found in this post:
    How we can configure job with conditional tasks for bamboo plugin? - Atlassian Community

I hope those options can help you.
