I'm currently using Bamboo with the starter license, and I'm supposed to have a 10 job limit. I thought that Plan Branches were counted as well, but I've been able to create 13 or so plan branches on this license (the plan having 1 job).
I've been writing a custom integration between my git repository and Bamboo, and I was hoping the API endpoint would fail if I tried to go over the job limit, but it does not.
Is this an error, or is this by design? How is the job limit enforced? Or have they changed how they count jobs?
Hi @Daniel Adolfsson ,
Thank you for your inquire.
Atlassian Bamboo has changed over past releases (as @Marcin Gardias mentioned) and the documentation has not been updated to reflect all of those, therefore, I will try to summarise the Starter License count.
Disabling a JOB does not free the license count, it is require to delete the JOB so a new one can be created. Due to this "limitation", it would be wise to make use of Bamboo Specs, so you can have your plans configuration in YAML or Java as a backup in case you need to restore it/them.
Please, have a look at Exporting existing plan configurations to Bamboo Specs for more information.
Hope the above clarifies things.
Just in case if anyone landed in this thread via search engines, we created a dedicated page that explains these scenarios in detail along with a query that you can run to list those Bamboo jobs that are counted for license restrictions.
