Bamboo RSS Basic Auth

Can someone detail how to access bamboo build RSS feeds from an external location for an auth protected instance?


We would like to consume the feed for custom notification and are not comfortable making builds public.

I struggled with urllib and redirect to authentication page.  With Python 3, urllib3, and feedparser i got something to work.


import feedparser
import urllib3

# colon separated creds - replace USERNAME and PASSWORD with Bamboo account info
headers = urllib3.make_headers('USERNAME:PASSWORD')
# replace bamboo with your bamboo server name or ipaddress and BUILDKEY with the build key of the project/build plan you want to get updates for.
d = feedparser.parse('https://bamboo/rss/createAllBuildsRssFeed.action?feedType=rssAll&buildKey=BUILDKEY', request_headers=headers)


# print(d) # print the whole feed
