Why bamboo takes the branch as a job.

I'm using the standard version of bamboo. I know it's limited to 10 jobs. I have define only one job. But now there is a message on page footer saying: Unleash the full power of Bamboo - Upgrade to unlimited jobs and remote agents today! (1 free jobs remaining). Why this is happening, my thoughts are that you are taking a branch execution as a new job, because I deleted one and decreased that number. In that job I have setup the Plan Branch. Please this is how it have to be, I'm wrong? Please need some help.


Thanks in advance!

Hi @Carlos Luis Castro Marquez,

That is how Bamboo works by design when using an starter license. The details on how this type of license work are stated in the Starter Licensing and Pricing page.

1. What restrictions are there when using a Bamboo Starter License?
With a Bamboo Starter License, you are restricted to 10 build Jobs, and 0 remote agents, but can run unlimited local agents. A Job is a single build unit within a Plan. One or more Jobs can be organized into one or more Stages. Given a 10 Job limit, you may distribute your Jobs between up to 10 Plans - for example, one Job per Plan or all 10 Jobs within one Plan. There is no limit on the number of times a Plan is built/executed.

Please note that use of the Plan Branches has a multiplicative effect on the number of jobs configured, and therefore an effect on the 10 jobs cap. For example, a plan with two jobs that is building against a total of three branches (the plan's original branch, plus two additional branches) will contribute 6 jobs toward the limit.

I hope that can clarify this scenario.
