I have a c++ project (cmake based) where I want the following steps to be executed:
Configure -> Build -> Test -> Package -> Distribute
I want to alter the configure task so that I can run against different compilers or with different compiler flags. The only way to do it with Bamboo is to duplicate the plan. This means that next time I want to modify my plan, I will have to modify X plans instead of just 1. This is just not possible given the number of configurations we need to test.
What we would need is "plan templates", ie. a way to define a plan containing parameters. We would then define plans based on the template and just defining the parameters. Any change to the plan template would be immediately seen in the plans based on the template.
