Configure Bamboo for Android Gradle based Project.

I'm trying to setup Bamboo for my Gradle build system based Android Project. I'm done with rest of all setup upto project repository path. I can see there is no direct support available in Add Task section to build it for Gradle but there is option to write script.

Any have suggestion what I need to configure here.

Quick Setup Guide

Use this script (e.g. for Gradle 2.5):

mkdir -p ~/mnt/bamboo-ebs/gradle && cd $_



Then take a new snapshot from the EBS volume and use this in your elastic agent.

Afterwards add "Executable Capability" to your image configuration with this as path:


Now you can use Gradle as Command in Build plans and add the task name as argument - e.g. "build".

Gradle 2.5 already installed in /usr/bin/gradle directory.  I didn't get what you mean after "Then take a new snapshot ....". Please update.

The snapshot is for elastic bamboo setup so it's not needed for this case. 

So in your case if you have graldle installed do the following: 

the settings wheel > agents > press the agent name

page shows up with the agents capabilities

Press Add Executable

Type is Command

Label is for example Gradle

path /usr/bin/gradle


Now you can set up the command gradle in any build phase.
