Bamboo Data Center - Early Access Program 2

We’re preparing for Bamboo 8.0, which will be our first Data Center release. To make sure our app vendors and customers with written in-house apps are prepared, we’re launching Bamboo 8.0 Early Access Program (EAP). This is the final one, including Java 11 support and Project level build resources.

This release will bring a number of breaking changes related to Java 11, Lucene, CVS, and Mercurial support. More information can be found in the release notes.

What are the new features available in this EAP?

  • Improved build resilience - eliminates the loss of long-running builds in the event of an outage

  • Cold standby HA - enforces redundancy and enables a quicker recovery from outages

  • Project level build resources - allow for delegation of project-level administration

  • Java 11 support


Step 1: Binaries

Step 2: License key

Important things to note about this EAP

  • This release should not be used in a production environment.

  • This license includes 1,000 agents and will expire on Aug 31, 2021.

Your feedback is of great value!

Please share any feedback or questions you might have in the comments and our developer team will get back to you.

@Martyna Wojtas, our evaluation of Bamboo Data Center is going OK. The biggest hurdle we keep running into are the apps / add-ons. Basically, we ended up having to disable all of the add-ons in order to get our remote agents to run.

Typical messages in the 'Manage apps' are as follows:

  • This version of Bamboo is unrecognized to the Atlassian Marketplace.
  • Some installed apps are incompatible with your Bamboo instance.
  • Some apps will require a Data Center license.
  • An unexpected error occurred.
    • This occurs when there is a Data Center license available and we click 'Buy Now'.

The add-ons causing heartburn are mainstream:

  • Adaptavist ScriptRunner for Bamboo
  • Bamboo Artifactory Plugin
  • Bamboo After Deployment Trigger plugin
  • bamboo-announcement-plugin

The only one we did not have to disable was 'TestComplete Task for Bamboo'.

Hopefully, this is useful feedback!
