Bamboo UI does not allow changing the Plan key. What you can do however is to use Administration / Move Plans option to move it to another project and then change the plan key.

Thanks, it took very long but finally was successful.

This works but it's a pain if you just want to change the plan key whilst staying in the same project as you have to move it twice (away and back again), especially if there are many completed builds and hence lots of artifact directories. I've also noticed that when moving a plan, the original key-named directories on the Bamboo server, although emptied, are not deleted (on Windows server at least - perhaps it works on other platforms). Is it possible to raise a feature request to change the key in a single operation?

John, we already have a feature request for that (https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/BAM-9658). As every software team we have to plan how to utilise our resources in optimal way and we're focusing on implementing features that more customers will benefit from.

Thanks, Krystian, I'll take a look. I've been around software development organisations long enough to realise that this is probably way down a rather long wish list, so I won't hold my breath!

4 years later and there it is... still open. While I like stride and all the other tools you all put out, the tech debt for Bamboo is painful in almost every way.
