Can we specify the name of the remote agent when executing the jar file?


As the question states, I'd like a way to pass an option to set the name of the agent, so that I don't have to manually do it every time in the Bamboo Server. 

We're currently using Docker to run the agent in a container; so it's setting the name as a unique identifier for the container, by default.

Hi @xil355,

You can either run the container with


or modify 

<description>Remote agent on host agent</description>

For example here I used

--hostname agent

Thank you, the container --hostname sounds like it would work.
