Is it possible to "rebuild in place" without generating a new build?


We sometimes run into a situation where a build has failed due to environmental/transient reasons, not because the code is faulty. When we used Bamboo, we had the option to “rebuild” that build, which would keep the same build number (for example, #15), instead of creating a new one, as CircleCI does.

Is this an option that can be enabled somewhere?


I believe that any rebuild in CircleCI will create a new number for the rebuild, and I’m unaware of any way around that functionality.


Ok, thanks.


This is correct, build numbers are an immutable thing in CircleCI.


The immutability is probably a good thing - it is an audit trail. Being able to re-run in place would be an easy way to hide a destructive operation.
