I'm using a Maven plugin (jgitflow) via Bamboo that creates a 'release' branch only if a 'release' branch doesn't already exist. After deleting the previous 'release' branch, I try to run the plugin again to create the 'release' branch but get the following error:
"Error starting release: Error starting release: a release branch [refs/remotes/origin/release/1.0.0] already exists. Finish that first!"
The 'release' branch mentioned above was deleted, but the Bamboo git cache makes Bamboo think it still exists. Is there a way to update the git cache automatically?
The instructions to remove the git cache can be found in Git cache removal in Bamboo. In general this requires a restart so if you were to script this you would need to restart Bamboo.
In the latest Bamboo versions (5.x) there is a user interface feature (Overview > Repository Settings) that allows you to clean the Git cache without requiring a shut down of the application.
I would definitely recommend adding a Suggestion to JAC for this feature. If you do so please add the link to the ticket here so the community can vote on it!
