Passing or failing a build depending on a string in a log


I have to run unit tests using a function that will print all the test results to a telnet log. I need to be able to search through this telnet log, and depending on whether I see a SUCCESS or FAILED string in this log, I need to be able to make Bamboo pass or fail the build. I am currently using Linux script to achieve this. Is there some kind of parameter that I can pass through the script that will pass/fail the build?

I have also been reading the documentation where it says that you can read logs.

From documentation:

We've added infrastructure for analysing build logs on the fly. For documentation, see LogInterceptor.  You can add these interceptors to the LogInterceptorStack in the BuildLogger. For examples of usage, see and com.atlassian.bamboo.plugins.ant.task.AntBuildTask .

If I get my telnet log to print into the build log, would I be able to use this functionality? If yes, how would you do so?

If you already have a Linux script that analyzes the log, all you need to do is set the exitcode of the script to indicate to Bamboo if it's a success or fail.

If the script returns 0 (zero), the build continues with any further steps.
If the script returns anything non-zero, the build stops and fails.
