Branch specific build triggers




I have Bamboo plan A and Bamboo plan B with branches B1, B2, B3. 

How can I set plan A to automatically trigger plan B and all it's branches?

@Vladimir Mikhailov The plan B can be the child plan for plan A. You can configure this via the dependency tab in the setting of plan A

I don't think there is a way to trigger for all branches in plan B. You can trigger with a default branch that is configured via the default linked repository attached in plan B

I have very complicatedly tuned plan B with many branches just to override 1-3 variables (don't wanna multiply plans and support in case of any minor change all of them). And I want every build of Plan A to trigger plan B and all it's branches.

I think it is this ticket that will be never implemented... But very useful. 

I have found checkbox in plan configuration Dependency:

[ ] Enable dependencies for all branches of this plan

(Dependencies are triggered for branches only if there is a branch with the same name within the dependent plan)


But looks like it does not work at all

Yeah i don't think it will unless you write a script at the end of plan A to trigger the rest api to trigger the build of plan B for both 3 branches B1, B2, B3. I think that will be feasible

the reason for having this option enabled for all branch plans is not to reconfigure every time the Parent plan A. Now I have 3 branch plans, but most probably a lot of other guys from Team will create soon ~100... No ideas how to trigger rest API to trigger all branches without mentioning exact names, regexp is most probably will not work...
