Can JIRA workflow actions trigger Bamboo builds?

We are implementing a delivery pipeline by automating to the build, test, release, and multi environment deployment in Bamboo.

We also have a JIRA workflow which models this process.

Is it possible to have JIRA workflow actions directly trigger a specific Bamboo stage? We are using Bamboo 4 and JIRA 5.

In Jira you can add workflow post function either as a plugin or just a groovy script using Script runner plugin https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.onresolve.jira.groovy.groovyrunner . In the postfunction you can use the REST API of Bamboo to start the build.

On Bamboo side "Currently the HTTP GET method is the only method available in the Bamboo REST API." that does not anable to trigger a specific Bamboo stage. But "You can add your own REST APIs to Bamboo by creating a Bamboo plugin that includes the REST plugin module." and you are free to start a new build. https://developer.atlassian.com/display/BAMBOODEV/Bamboo+REST+APIs

What method of invoking bamboo did you choose? I noticed that you can link bamboo to JIRA and do the following: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/AOD/Running+a+Bamboo+Build+when+Releasing+a+Version<br< a="">>

Would be intererested to know your approach.
