how to run sub suites of tests on branches from single git repo

we have a single git repo w/ a number of differing products. we would like to configure bamboo so that when a checkin happens against a branch we can run only a subset of the entire test suite against this branch. ideally, we would like to associate test suites to dirs & run tests based on which dirs were altered. is there a way to do this using bamboo?

You can achive this on per-branch basis using Plan Branches and Plan variables.

Set up a Plan on your 'master' branch and define the Tasks you need. When defining test suites that should be run use a variable. e.g ${bamboo.testSuites2Run}. Set it to some reasonable default. Use "polling repository for changes" trigger.

Now create Plan Branches for each of your branches. On each Plan Brach define the variable "testSuites2Run" to a value appropriate for branch.

As for running test suites based on content of the commit: this is only possible by creating a plugin
