Post-Chain Action module

Available:

Bamboo 2.7 and later

Purpose of this Module Type

Post-Chain Action modules allow plugins to define custom functionality that runs after the Plan finishes executing. This module will be run regardless of BuildState or LifeCycle state of the ChainResultsSummary (For example, if the build completed successfully or failed). The module provides access to the Chain object, the ChainResultsSummary and the ChainExecution.

Configuration

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

Attributes

Name*

Description

class

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.

key

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.
