Sometimes we got some slow running builds, that are built before PR can be merged. In the case of a fast forward merge, the git hash will be the same for next build started from master.
Normally this is not a problem, but in rare cases I would really like to bypass a few build steps if they have already been performed.
Any luck? The only thing I can think of is to keep an external key value db to keep track of this.
Hi @Jan Nylund,
According to one of our Bamboo developers, an implementation to solve this issue would require a deep rework at Bamboo side. He shared also that it would be also hard to achieve this if you intend to work on a custom plugin for that task.
Hey @Daniel Santos
I know this is a corner case, but technically, it's pretty straight forward, all I need is a key value storage.
- After successful test and build, I store git hash + build params + timestamp.
- Before build, I check the key value storage for git hash + build params + timestamp. If there is a recent success I bypass the step.
My use case for this is a corner case, and related to long running tests that bamboo is just watching. For now I think the most reasonable solution is that I build it outside of Bamboo and check the status with curl or similar. (short timeout so in case it's not available it just defaults to build).
I could probably build a Bamboo plugin that provides a rest api endpoint in Bamboo master for this key value storage and then check that each time a build is triggered... (I assume)
When you say bypass you mean that no build would be run for the commits already processed in a branch, right?
The master branch, in this case, would miss part of the builds and would have all of them only when a new commit (different hash) is built if I understood you correctly.
