Bamboo and node js deployment task hangs when I run node task : node main.js


Hello Everyone,

At work they assigned me to install a Bamboo server, and they gave me a node project that runs a server listening for connections. 

The main goal is to have a CI for multiple projects, and I want to start with the node one.

What I have:

I have a windows server 2012 R2, and i installed  Atlassian Bamboo version 5.15.5 build 51518.

I'm trying to run a nodejs server. This server starts listening for incoming connections.

I've created a plan in Bamboo with a default job that has 2 tasks:

1) Source Code Checkout (Bitbucket integration)

2) npm install (to install all dependencies specified in package.json)

I created an Artifact with all the files of the program to be run in the deployment.

I created a Deployment Project with the following tasks:

1)Clean working directory task

2)Artifact download


What i have for the task N# 3 is 
Script configuration
Interpreter cmd.exe

Command: start node main.js

But the deployment project hangs until I close the node window running the server. The Deployment project finish successfully.

I would like to know if I can run it, and somehow finish the deployment project, but leave the server running. Also, when I do another commit to Bitbucket it will re run the entire process again and deploy with the new code.


Thank you in advance. :)
