Can the Bamboo Docker Runner build an image from a Dockerfile?

Eric Parton July 23, 2018

Hello,

I've been using the new Docker Runner feature and it works pretty well. However, I have a number of build plans with special requirements that have their own Dockerfiles for their build environments, and its become somewhat burdensome to maintain the infrastructure to independently build and upload these images to a central docker registry every time a change is made and then to update the relevant plans to use the new image.

Is it possible for the Docker Runner to build and use a new image based on a Dockerfile in the same version control repository as the rest of the code?

Thanks,

Eric

Its not possible to use Dockerfile for the new Docker Runner feature.

Try using Docker task inside the Job to build the image with Dockerfile first and then use other Docker task to run it.

Building the image in another task seems to work pretty well, but the Docker Runner task doesn't do a pull of the specified image before running, which would make this a lot easier to use and maintain.

You can use a Docker task to pull the image first and then the second Docker task to run it
