Run a task before a bamboo build

Is there a way to run a task before a bamboo build OR run the task and if it fails not increment the bamboo build number ( so that the package version does not get incremented?)

What sorts of things are you looking to do inside this task?

We do have a plugin point which allows you to intercept whether a build should run or not, you might be able to use this to extend Bamboo to meet your needs. But it really depends what you are trying to achieve.



I want to check if the package about to be built in the plan (packages get named with a prefix + build number) already exists ( it would be the case if someone created it manually) - so it's basically checking if a file exists and it can be run on the bamboo server.

By the sounds of things the plugin point could work for you, seeing as though the check can be run on the server.
