Pull request to automatic plan branch creation

We have recently begun experimenting with enabling automatic plan branch creation when a pull request gets created.

However, we are struggling with how that then relates to multiple versions of software. Naturally, over time, we have to add/remove some aspect of our build plans.  When we hit one of these times, we currently create a new build plan as a copy of the first and make the appropriate changes to it.  We can create a linked repository that points to the appropriate branch (develop, etc) for the new version.  The old plan remains in case a patch/hotfix is needed.

However, with the pull request branch creation option enabled, now both build plans create a plan branch and run when a pull request is entered.

A more specific example: You have three branches defined:





There is a Bamboo plan pointed to master.  There is another Bamboo plan pointed to develop to build the new components being added.  A pull request then gets entered to merge the feature/add-something branch into develop.

Bamboo then creates feature/add-something plan branches in BOTH the "master" and "develop" plans.  The master one checks out the feature/add-something commit and attempts to build it, failing.

This seems like it would be a common occurrence.  How are others dealing with this type of a situation?

Hi Adam,

I know this question is a bit old, but I think it worths to link relevant information here. This problem could bee solved with the implementation of the following feature request:

Anyone that thinks this feature is relevant might want to vote on the above feature request to give more visibility to it.
