how to configure a Bamboo build to be triggered by a new tag in Bitbucket

I am trying to configure a Build in Bamboo to be triggered when a new Tag is created in a Bitbucket repository. I am using Bamboo version 6.0.0. I noticed that there isn´t any update regarding this issue in this ticket:

is there any possible solution ?

As an alternative approach, it is possible to create an automation rule using the Automation for Jira and the Better DevOps Automation for Jira apps.

Use the Tag Created trigger and one of the "starting a Bamboo build..." recipes. It is fairly trivial.

(You can also check the tag name using a condition on the {{devops.tag}} smart value.)

Hi Marcos,

I found the following Community post for you which explains this topic very well:

Long story short: Bamboo only provides support for branches currently. Hence, for now, you will have to create branches to match your tags and trigger your build as such.

Hope this clarifies things.

Cheers and have a great weekend,

Just in case if anyone lands on this page, starting from Bamboo 7.2 onwards, one can choose 'Tag trigger' based on new tags pushed.

This is explained in this page - 



I follow this thread, and I did upgrade to bamboo 7.2 (we have one on-premise installation of bamboo ) in order use tag trigger. I have created one build plan with tag triggered (only triggered by tag, not commit).


Tag filer is:  ^[0-9]{3}\.[0-9]{3}\.[0-9]{3}$, and i checked the option "Only run build if the branch contains the matched tag". 

Then I push a tag 000.000.001, but build plan is not executed. 


Anything wrong there? Could you please provide one working example ?

BR, Jevin
