getRepository() is removed in Bamboo 6.3.2

We have updated our bamboo version from 5.8.0 to 6.3.2 and a number of deprecations and removals in the API has affected our plugin codebase. A specific code segment needs to be upgraded and we haven’t been able to figure out how. The basic requirement is to get the changes between two bamboo builds.


private TaskContext taskContext;

    private String selectedRepoId;


    public VcsRevision(TaskContext taskContext, String selectedRepoId) {

        this.taskContext = taskContext;

        this.selectedRepoId = selectedRepoId;



    public String getRevisionIdentifier() throws TaskException {

        String planKey = taskContext.getBuildContext().getPlanKey();

        RepositoryDefinition selectedRepoDef = getSelectedRepositoryDefinition(selectedRepoId); // RepositoryDefinition has been upgraded to PlanRepositoryDefinition


        String repositoryName = selectedRepoDef.getName();


        BuildRepositoryChanges bc;

        try {

            bc = selectedRepoDef.getRepository().collectChangesSinceLastBuild(planKey, null);

        } catch (RepositoryException e) {




        return String.format(REVISION_ID, repositoryName, bc.getVcsRevisionKey());


RepositoryDefinition has been updated to PlanRepositoryDefinition, (as per ) and unlike RepositoryDefinition it does not have a getRepository() method.

Is there a way to replace the above or an alternative to the now unavailable getRepository().collectChangesSinceLastBuild(planKey, null) ?

return String.format(REVISION_ID, repositoryName, getBuildContext().getBuildChanges().getVcsRevisionKey(selectedRepoId));

This worked. Thank you!
