When condition is not met for a conditional task, why the whole build fails?

I have a conditional task for which i have used a plan variable isRCBuild to trigger.

When isRCBuild=0 it should run otherwise no.

When the isRCBuild=1 the condition is not met but the whole builds stops, why is that? shouldn't it just be skipped??

If it's the only task then build fails because there were no tasks for execution. Add dummy Script task "echo hi" to avoid it

If it's only task then it should go to next job. I think this qualifies as a bug.

@Alexey Chystoprudov Do you think this should qualify as a bug?

For the workaround, i now check the bamboo variable from the script itself and EXIT if required. Bamboo conditional tasks are not that robust from my POV.

@Chitrarth Sahai , it's existing behaviour. When you create job without task Bamboo fails it as we decided it's not a good situation.

The same when all tasks are skipped, it means job had no executable tasks and its state is unknown.
