tigger a bamboo build only if there are VCS changes?



We have as part of our entire product set, we have a dozen other applications that make the entire set.  When we build the primary app, we would like to trigger all the other app builds but only have it build if there are VCS changes.  This is different than trigger on a VCS change or even Repository triggers the build when changes are committed.


Is that possible?  I know this is possible with Teamcity but not sure on Bamboo.

Hello Lance Lyons,

Maybe, you could use the following URL with an script


information Replace http://localhost:8085 with Base URL to your Bamboo instance

information Replace PROJ-PLAN with plan key you want to trigger

What the URL above does:

Basically, it will go through all plan branches in Bamboo (including the "master" plan) checking if there are changes in the repository and if finds it any, it will trigger a build against that branch.


  • You must set up a Remote Trigger in your Plan so it can accept request outside Bamboo
  • Requests must be originated from IPv4 (IPv6 will be rejected)

Kind regards,
Rafael P. Sperafico
