Custom scripts with ondemand Bamboo?

Hi Guys,

We build sites in Drupal and use Drush (cli for Drupal) for a lot of admin work (updating db, clearing caches, running tests.) as well as the cli for Behat. I'm not sure if we'd have the ability to use those 3rd party clients if we had an ondemand version of Bamboo, would we?

Thanks.

Hi Christian,

Please correct me if I'm wrong here, but you guys are wanting to run custom scripts in Bamboo OnDemand that call to Drush and your cli for Behat and not integrate the tools directly into Bamboo, right?

If so then you shouldn't have any problems at all. You just need to create scripts that make the appropriate calls to your tools. Keep in mind though that your builds will be running on an AWS elastic instance (required by the ondemand platform) so if there is any issue in calling out from AWS to wherever your tools are located that will have to be accounted for.

Thanks

Hi Turner,

So, no tools on the build instance?

I'm leaning towards the 'too hard basket' if thats the case. Writing a script to call a secondary server to run commands on the build server seems a little over complicated.

Thanks for the answer.

Hi All,

Just to clarify this is how you would set up any build too. You create your instance and add all the necessary files, in this case via an EBS volume (https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/BAMBOO/Configuring+elastic+instances+to+use+the+EBS) which you can attach to your instance whenever it's running. The other option being a script that installs them to the instance whenever it spins up.

In order to call those test you would need to write a script that automated the testing/build. I believe the only difference between here and another tool would be that the OnDemand platform does not support third party add-ons currently so the tools would not integrate directly.

Thanks!
