There is no link to configure build expiry settings

I am getting multiple jars being copied because they exist in my bamboo on demand. I want to set expiration but all the articles refer to links that are not available in my bamboo ondemand UI.

How do I expire stuff in bamboo on demand???

Hi Lee,

As of Bamboo's update to 5.6 the options to manually set build expiry have been removed. My apologies that the documentation has fallen out of date. I've created an internal request to have those updated. As it stands now build expiry is automatically enforced with the following parameters:

  • Build and deployment expiry period of 30 days
  • Log files under 10Mb are kept regardless of expiry
  • Keep last version/build regardless of expiry



That's a real problem for us as we have new build artifacts that are getting deployed as we want them to expire every week not every 30 days....can artifact deletion be put back?

Hi Lee,

Just so I don't leave you hanging here. Currently there is no way to add these features back to the software. I'm recording this issue and presenting it to our development team to see if we can add the functionality back for y'all that want to expire artifacts more quickly than they are expired by default. I'll update you here once that's complete.



Ah man. The documentation had me excited about the expiry features. It would be great if the documentation was updated. It would have saved the time I spent this morning developing my expiry plan and not being able to figure out how to implement it.
