Hi Atul,

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Remote agents indeed have their own working directory, refer to Bamboo agent home directory for details:

When you installed your remote agents (if any), you specified the location for the Agent home directory — this is the directory where the agent's configuration data is stored. The default name of this directory is bamboo-agent-home.


The contents of the agent home directory are:

This contains configuration information about this remote agent. Most notably, it stores the agent id, which gets generated the first time this agent connects to the Bamboo server.

This is where the agent will check out the files and perform builds (similar to the Bamboo server's xml-data/build-dir/ directory)

You can also change the default location during Bamboo remote agent installation, as outlined in section Changing where the remote agent stores its data within Additional remote agent options:

By default, the remote agent will store its data in a USER_HOME/bamboo-agent-home. If you wish to specify a different directory, add the following command line parameter before the JAR file name:


where RemoteAgentHome is the path to the Bamboo agent home directory you created in step 1.1.



Thanks Steffen
