I am a trying to run my Matlab docker image in Bamboo to perform certain simulations, but I got stuck after Matlab docker task is completed since this docker image seems to be unavailable for following tasks in my Bamboo plan.

Currently I have configured the Docker run task as follows
enter image description here

I see that it loads the MAtlab docker image and it is able to run it, but afterwards it closes it so it is not available for the next task in my plan which tries to issue the following command

'matlab myFolder -batch mainCI'

I have also tested with below command and same results as log below

'matlab${bamboo.buildNumber} -sd myFolder'

My task after running Matlab docker looks like this
enter image description here

and this is the log I can share

26-Mar-2024 08:58:35 Starting task 'Matlab Docker run' of type 'com.atlassian.bamboo.plugins.bamboo-docker-plugin:task.docker.cli'

26-Mar-2024 08:58:36 Failing task since return code of [/home/bamboo/bamboo-agent-home/temp/ -batch mainCI] was 127 while expected 0

I have been reading this Bamboo ticket and this How to avoid Docker container deletion after build completion but I haven't managed to make it work...

Any suggestion of what else can I do to make the Matlab docker available for next task?

Thanks in advance!

Hello Francisco Cuesta,

Welcome to Atlassian community

When you select Detach container option in the Docker Task, the container will run in the background, see my example below

1. Docker Task

2. Now in my Script task I am inspecting this running container with name shanky and I can see the results which means the container is running within the script task and will be killed when the Job finishes.


Build Logs


You can see above the container shanky is in running status when the script task is getting executed.

I think the way you are describing the commands in not correct, I am not familiar with your container structure so can't opine.
