Use git commit messages to control whether a bamboo project starts building

We are thinking of using a keyword in a git commit to specify that a commit should not trigger the bamboo build server. For example, we could make a commit saying NO-START that would not start the build server.

I know that you can see the last commit message using the command `git log -p -1` if you're in a directory with a git repository, which could be done from a task, but ideally we want to check before it ever gets to the build server.

Is there any way to do this with Bamboo in the cloud?

Hello Jake,

You can configure plan dependency. Plan A will be triggered by repository modification and search for necessary string in git log. There will be Plan B without triggers which will be added as child plan for Plan A.

When Plan A is successful, it triggers Plan B

More details in documentation

Unfortunately you'd need to create such plan for every repository you're using.

Hi Jake. You mentioned "and search for necessary string in git log". This implies that I can add a repository-polling trigger, but only run the plan if there's a certain word/phrase in a recent Git commit message. I don't see this option in Bamboo, can you elaborate?
