Parse JIRA issue key in Bamboo from SVN commits

Hey there, I need some help here, I have a plan with two stages in my bamoo server.

My commits is in the format of "JIRA-ISSUE-KEY message"

I have a trigger detecting code changes in the first stage

So I wonder if there's a way to parse the JIRA-ISSUE-KEY as a vairable and pass to the second stage

Hi Michael,

This is actually not exposed as a build variable in Bamboo and it seems this will not be implemented because of added complexities if a single build comes with hundreds or thousand of commits as stated in the improvement request

Two things you could do as thus:

1. Write a script task to get the commit messages from the repository and then find a way to extract the keys

2. Write a script task that will do some REST API calls to retrieve the commit messages



Hey Sultan, thx a lot for the suggestion, I haven't actually tried yet, but seems like doable, will try it out and post the result later.

Anyone can help?
