Can i add a capability directly in the remote agent?

Hello Everyone,


I'm new to bamboo. I'm learning it. I have a doubt regarding Adding the capabilities. Instead of Going to the bamboo and adding the capability for our remote agent Is there any way to add capability directly in the remote agent so that it will be automatically displayed in the bamboo.

Need help in this. Thanks in advance.

Hi Ramasamy,

You can define the capabilities for a specific remote agent by using a configuration file on the agent machine.


See Configuring remote agent capabilities using page



Thanks a lot Jack.

But in configuring remote agent capabilities they stated a format to add the executable capability, the format is

system.builder.<executable type>.<executable label>=<executable path>

For example: i would like to add the capability like dotnet(version 3.0.100).

location for my file dotnet is "C:\Program Files\dotnet"

I also tried adding like this "system.builder.dotnet.Dotnet=C:\Program Files\dotnet\dotnet.exe"  into a file named "" and moved this file inside the folder "C:\bamboo-agent\bamboo-agent-home\bin".  Restarted my remote agent.

After doing this i created a plan and tried to add a task but unfortunately there is no task named "Dotnet" is displaying inside my bamboo "Task types".

Kind of stuck again & confused.
