Pre-Stage Action Module


Bamboo 2.7 and later

On this page:

Purpose of this Module Type

Pre-Stage Action modules allow plugins to define custom functionality that runs before the jobs for the given stage are queued for building. The module provides access to the StageExecution object.


The root element for the Pre-Stage Action module is preStageAction. It allows the following attributes and child elements for configuration:





The class which implements this plugin module. The class you need to provide depends on the module type. For example, Confluence theme, layout and colour-scheme modules can use classes already provided in Confluence. So you can write a theme-plugin without any Java code. But for macro and listener modules you need to write your own implementing class and include it in your plugin. See the plugin framework guide to creating plugin module instances.


The unique identifier of the plugin module. You refer to this key to use the resource from other contexts in your plugin, such as from the plugin Java code or JavaScript resources.

<component-import key="appProps" interface="com.atlassian.sal.api.ApplicationProperties"/>

In the example, appProps is the key for this particular module declaration, for component-import, in this case.


The human-readable name of the plugin module.

*class and key attributes are required.


The table summarises the elements. The sections below contain further information.




The description of the plugin module. The 'key' attribute can be specified to declare a localisation key for the value instead of text in the element body.


Pre-Stage Action modules must implement the PreStageAction interface.


Here is an example atlassian-plugin.xml file containing a Pre-Stage Action module:

<atlassian-plugin name="Hello World" key="example.plugin.helloworld">
        <description>A Pre-Stage Action module type test</description>
        <vendor name="Atlassian Software Systems" url=""/>

    <preStageAction key="myPreStageAction" class="com.atlassian.example.bamboo.actions.MyPreStageAction">
        <description>Prepares the stage for execution</description>
