Configuring plans

A plan defines everything about your continuous integration build process in Bamboo.

A plan:

  • Has a single stage, by default, but can be used to group jobs into multiple stages.
  • Processes a series of one or more stages that are run sequentially using the same repository.
  • Specifies the default repository.
  • Specifies how the build is triggered, and the triggering dependencies between the plan and other plans in the project.
  • Specifies notifications of build results.
  • Specifies who has permission to view and configure the plan and its jobs.
  • Provides for the definition of plan variables.

Every plan belongs to a project.

Projects and plans can only be configured by Bamboo administrators (see Creating a plan).
