Trigger branch-plan only on changes in specific repository sub-folder


I have the following problem and can't find any solution for it:

Our repository contains multiple C# Solutions and we are using pull-requests to bring new code into develop/master.

The target I want to achieve is the following:

  • Multiple builds, one for each solution inside the repository
  • A build is only triggered, if where are changes inside the solution sub-folder
  • When someone pushes a feature-branch and creates a pull-request, all build for all Solutions with changes are triggered and executing the UnitTests for these solutions

I configured my default-plan as follow:

  • The repository is set to our repository on the Bitbucket-Server, default branch is develop
  • In the repository settings I added "Change detection options" and add a RegEx to the Subfolder of Solution 1
  • Trigger of the default-plan is set to "Bitbucket Server repository triggered", using the repository settings described above
  • The branches options are configured to create a new plan "When new branch in repository is created"
  • The triggers of the branch-plan is set to "Same as defined in parent plan"

I expect the following:

  • A developer wants to bring a new feature containing changes for Solution 1 into develop and creates a pull-request
  • The feature-branch is pushed to server and a pull-request will be created
  • As there are changes in Solution 1, the build for Solution 1 is triggered, the build for Solution 2 NOT
  • After the build and all tests of Solution 1 are passed, the pull-request can be merged

Unfortunately it doesn't work as I expect, because on branch-plan creation (at the moment the feature-branch is pushed to the repository), the branch-plan build is triggered, doesn't care if where are changes in Solution 1 or not.

When the developer pushes new changes in the existing branch, it works as I defined and expected (so only changes in Solution 1 triggers the build), but this first build on branch-plan creation is a problem I can't solve... is where some solution how I can handle this?
