Does anyone have the usecase where an external entity (to the build team) has a need to modify a build plan that they take "ownership" of, and that they're granted that access?
For example, I have the normal build team that manages Build plans within Bamboo. Dev Team A would like to manage their own plan (and I'm not that averse to it, at least in theory). However, my fear is that a poorly written plan task could cause a lot of damage to the Bamboo server itself (like a "script" that runs "rm -fr /" accidentally). Normally, Bamboo runs as a particular server process (by default, "bamboo"). Which means that any build plan normally runs as that user, too (since it inherits the process owner). I can "sandbox" away that plan to only run on, say, an external agent, but that's configured via the Plan, which means that the Dev Team A could change that (inadvertently, of course) back to the primary build server.
At any rate, is there a good solution to this usecase that I'm not thinking of? Does anyone else let external users (to the build team) manage/edit their "own" Build Plans? There's a corollary question about deployment plans, too.
In Atlassian every developer can create/modify plans. We believe that people are responsible and good by nature and are not willing to do any harm to company nor its servers
If your environment / build process requires additional level of security / permissions then maybe it could be possible to setup separate Bamboo instances for Dev team and Build team. The latter will be running under more restrictive permissions.
Hope this helps
Thank you for your question.
Currently, Bamboo does not provide the option to only view the Plan configuration. Either you have access to it or not. Due to that, there is an improvement request created that I would like to share with you:
I would suggest adding any comments to the issue above as well as voting on the issue to create it's popularity and likelihood of being implemented in a future release.
