Configuring Minimum Required Successful Builds


I have a project with two builds run against our pull requests. One bamboo build is very slow, one is very fast. 

When I turn on the merge check "minimum number of builds: 1", I can only merge if both builds have passed and have completed. This doesn't match my expectation, which is that it would (at the very least) allow me to merge if i had 1 passing and 1 failing build. 

Is there anyway to circumvent this behavior without turning off the merge check entirely?

Hi Jacob,

This is the intended behaviour. If you look at the dialog where you configure the number of required builds it says:

If there are more builds than specified above, they are all required to be successful in order to merge the pull request.

However, BBS also assumes you'd want to wait for any in progress builds, and will block a merge for those builds as well. This isn't clear in the messaging though. I've raised a suggestion to clarify this discrepancy.


Hi Lucy.

Due to the comment, all builds should be successful, no matter which number you specify, is that really expected behaviour?

Is there any way to check only last build?



Like # people like this

Lucy, I'm dealing with the same thing. If you've got 10 builds, and the first 2 fail, you have to somehow get the first 2 to run again even though the last 8 have been successful. This is not good behavior.
