Want to run two different plan on one single remote agent at the same time

Want to run two different plan with different working directory at the same time on one single remote agent. Is that possible to implement?


It's not possible. Agents are dedicated to executed job and can handle only one job at a time. It's by design to avoid side effects of simultaneous commands execution

Hi @Bhavya Shukla,

As per @Alexey Chystoprudov comment, agents can only run one task at a time. If you understand your environment and see that running more than one job at a time on the same remote node will NOT produce any conflicts or create a performance issue, you can alternatively install another Bamboo remote agent on the same host and connect it to your Bamboo server.

Note that the parallel agent will require a completely isolated Bamboo agent home, startup scripts and possibly another run user (for security purposes) -- and will be treated by the Bamboo server as an independent agent with resources and licensing constraints.

Don't forget to set a different Bamboo home for your alternative Bamboo agent. Please check the following link under "Changing where the remote agent stores its data"


Kind Regards,
