Configuring source code management triggers for Subversion
This page provides instructions on how to configure Subversion to send message events that trigger the execution of Bamboo plans. You only need to configure Subversion to send these message events if The repository triggers the build when changes are committed build strategy has been specified for one or more of your Bamboo plans.
Configuring Subversion to trigger a build
This section explains how to configure Subversion to trigger a build when the repository is changed. A Subversion hook script is used to perform the trigger action whenever a Subversion repository is changed.
The following commands and script files assume that your Subversion server runs on a UNIX- or Linux-based operating system. If your Subversion server runs on any other operating system, then you will need to modify the script files and if necessary, the commands below to suit that operating system.
On this page:
Step 1. Enable the Subversion post-commit hook
To do this, run the following commands:
cd into the hooks/ directory
The Subversion post-commit file is not installed by default. If it does not exist, make a copy of the
post-commit.tmpl file in the
hooks/ directory, name it
post-commit and make it executable:
cp post-commit.tmpl post-commit
chmod a+rx post-commit
Step 2. Install the post-commit trigger
Add a line like the following to the
post-commit file, for running Bamboo's build trigger script file.
/path-to-your-bamboo-installation/scripts/svn-triggers/postCommitBuildTrigger.sh base-url BUILD-KEY
base-urlis the base URL of the Bamboo server. For example:
BUILD-KEYis the key of the Bamboo plan to be executed.
Make Bamboo's build trigger script file executable (using
chmod) so that the Subversion user can execute it.
Step 3. Do a test commit
Conduct a 'test' commit. Bamboo should start building the relevant plan after a few seconds.
The Bamboo log file should contain an entry like this:
[INFO] com.atlassian.bamboo.build.UpdateAndBuild - Bamboo build was triggered by remote http call from 127.0.0.1
Build Trigger Security — Bamboo will only accept remote build triggers if the triggers originated from the Subversion server(s) identified in the Subversion Repository URL of any Bamboo plans. Requests originating from other Subversion servers will be rejected by Bamboo.
