Bamboo usage in an air-gapped context

Niklas February 2, 2023

Hey,

I was not able to find specific details about this. Would it be possible to deploy and run bamboo in a fully air-gapped context, which means there would be no internet-connection during setup and also never during runtime. I found some infos about running bamboo offline, but how would licensing work in such a situation?

Same question for Bitbucket Cloud.

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Yes, you can run Bamboo inside an air-gapped network (I say network because I know of two organisations running Bamboo and Bitbucket on one primary server on a network with a load of secondary servers doing the builds.  There is a network there, but the network is only for builds and has no external access)

The licence is simple - you go into your Atlassian account, find the licence (or create one - DC evaluation or paid), and copy and paste the key into a text file.  You can then feed that key to the installation process, rather than click on "go get a licence".

Bitbucket Cloud cannot be airgapped.  By definition, it's an internet service.  (You can do whitelisting with it though - only let certain IP addresses reach it)

Thanks for the fast reply, thats fantastic news. Of course you would need a repository and other stuff in the same network, that would be provided and configured by us in this use-case.

One of the ones I'm thinking of had a process where they would take a laptop with the latest git repo into the data centre, sync with Bitbucket and then disconnect. 

The other one broke the airgap - every Tuesday afternoon, the airgapped network connected to their main network and synchronised the git repos.

I suspect there may be other good ways to do it, you've probably already got a better one than those!

We don't have a "perfect" solution yet, currently evaluating different approaches, but the first approach you mentioned is probably the most suiting one, as the other is not really "air-gapped", as you also mentioned :)
