Triggers for deployment environments

Use deployment triggers for automatic management of how and when Bamboo starts deployment projects.

Deployments can be triggered automatically based on:

  • a successful build of a plan branch
  • a successful deployment to some other environment
  • a successful build of a plan stage
  • a schedule (specific time and date, at an interval, or Crone-based)

Note: You can also start deployments manually.

When an automatic deployment starts, Bamboo creates a new release based on the latest successful build of the plan branch that is defined in the deployment trigger. If there is only one branch in the plan, it is selected by default.
