quicker branch detection

We are using build plan branching quite extensively in our environment. Is there a way to have the branch detector run any quicker or only for a specific plan? I have tried some of the suggestions in the forum to run the http://bamboo:8085/chain/admin/detectBranches.action?planKey=[plankey] url, but that does not seem to speed things up at all (it still takes around 3-5 min). We are currently using 5.6.1.

The idea is that we can create a new branch and almost immediately be able to build.

Would appreciate any suggestions.

Right now Bamboo fetches remote repository for branches every 300 seconds, it's configurable at Administration > General configuration.

If you use Stash you can configure AppLink connection between Stash and Bamboo. When new branch is created at Stash it will notify Bamboo to create new Plan branch immediately without extensive polling from Bamboo side. 

Can you do an applink connection to bitbucket as well?

It's on our roadmap

Thanks for your help Alexey
