Run branch/plan with different build configurations

Is it possible to run Bamboo with different build configurations?
We have a Main branch and several feature branches, and we want to build them with different configurations.
This is mainly regarding tests, which being created on feature branches and then delivered to Main.


  • Job1
  • Job2


  • Job1
  • Job3


  • Job1

Actual Usage:


  • Build Job
  • Test1 Job


  • Build Job
  • Test1 Job
  • Test2 Job


  • Build Job
  • Test3 Job

No, it's not possible. Branches inherit build configuration from master, there are very few things that can be modified or overridden. You cannot create new Jobs or Tasks in Branches.

Do you have any tips how we can make this work?

Or do we have to implement this manually using branch-detection and plan-cloning.

So I have to implement this myself using branch detection and plan cloning, this will be fun...
