Bamboo Fail a Build with Specific Text

I want to fail a build when certain text shows up in the log. Is there any way to do this in Bamboo?

The logs just pipe stdout and stderr. If you want to stop and fail the build as soon as the text shows up, then you would need to develop a log checking thread/process to whatever you are running. In other words, it's not a Bamboo thing.

If you can wait until the job is finished, then you can create another job in a subsequent stage that gets the log contents via an http "GET". You can use a program like curl or write up something using the scripting language of your choice. The URL is consistent and looks something like: "http://bamboo_url/download/PROJ-PLAN-JOB/build_logs/PROG-PLAN-JOB-BUILDNUM.log". The build number and build result keys are Bamboo variables. Once you have the log text, it's a simple matter of grepping for the line and then exiting with either a 0 exit code (success) or non-zero exit code (failure).

Wow, it seems crazy to me that Bamboo doesn't have a feature like this. It's an extremely useful feature of TeamCity.

@chris Agreed. In TeamCity this was super easy, unfortunate to discover this limitation...

+1 this even implemented in Jenkins
