Is there a way to test a patch build on Bamboo before actually pushing it?

Our code is built for many platforms and sometimes we break the build of another platform when we push it. We can see Bamboo report and then we fix the problem. Sometimes the fix will break another platform. This pollutes our repository with many fix patches. Building all platforms in our local machine is also not practical, it takes too long. Is there a way to send a patch for Bamboo to build it before actually pushing it?

The easiest way is to do your changes on a branch. Merge to master only if everything is green. To avoid multiple patches in the repo, flatten/squash the merge instead of merging individual changesets - some tools such is Bitbucket server offer that out of the box.

Oh, and obviously your VCS should let you remove that branch and prune the unlinked changesets.

I don't think we can have one branch/developer but thx for your help. I think we may need some kind of patch build server.
