Notification Type module


Bamboo 2.2 and later


The NotificationType module identifies your custom notification. Users will be able to select this from the drop down menu and provide any configuration information you require. This class is also responsible for determining whether the notification criteria is met (e.g did the build fail?). NotificationTypes can be scoped to determine where it can be configured.  There are three options (though poorly named):

  • Chain - For Plan level notifications
  • Plan - for Job level notifications
  • System - for global notifications (configured in the administration section of Bamboo)

If you don't provide a scope, it will default to a Job level notification. Also, note that whilst there are Job and Plan level notifications, they are both configured at the plan level.  Job notifications will generally apply to all jobs within the Plan.

For more information on building a completed Notification Plugin see Building a Notification Plugin


Notification Types must implement the com.atlassian.bamboo.notification.NotificationType interface. There is an abstract class com.atlassian.bamboo.notification.AbstractNotificationType which you can extend that implements a lot of these methods for you.
