Hi @caner_saritac ,

As of now, there is no such option to exclude a folder from triggering a build. 

This is because a new notification is sent from bitbucket server to Bamboo whenever new change is performed in the repository. We should be able to see something like this in atlassian-bamboo.log:

POST <BAMBOO_URL>/rest/remote-event-consumer/latest/events/stash-branch-changed-remote-event

One way we can do is by using Exclude changesets option (that you can find under the respective linked repository definition). You will have to introduce some special message in the respective commit message to differentiate a branch. This way, the commit messages with the regular expression you have added in this section will be excluded.

Hope that helps.
