Trigger build if Git commit message contains a certain word/phrase.

E.g. if I push a commit such as "v1.2.3 deploy-qa", can I configure a plan to trigger on the "deploy-qa" text in the commit message, and run the plan only when that text is present?

You can configure such things on the repository itself, on the changesets:Screen Shot 2017-04-13 at 7.27.44 PM.png

 

It's sort of a negative of a negative, but I'd think that a regex like '(?!.*deploy-qa).*' might work in your case.

 

Just to keep in mind, if that's a non-snapshot version for maven/gradle, make sure to _never_ install it on the local repo (mvn clean install or such) if it's already deployed to remote repository (nexus or artifactory), because it's going to poison your maven local repo with a different version of an immutable artefact.

Thanks, that may work. Although I wish there was an include/exclude changesets option like there is for files. Regular Expressions are not great for negative lookup...
