Docker Bamboo - building and testing Windows-only .Net

I'd like to run a Bamboo container to build and test locally. The project is .Net 4x, not .Net Core; so it's Windows-only. The Bamboo Docker Image is Linux. I can't see how the Bamboo container can work in this scenario. Is there something I'm missing?

Hi Abe,

I am not on the Bamboo team but will try to help.

Just to clarify - are you trying to run Bamboo inside a Docker container?

Or do you want to spin up a Docker container as part of the build-and-test cycle of an existing bamboo server?

If the former, you're right that the provided Docker images are based on ubuntu.

I am neither a Windows nor a Docker expert, but I don't see any reason why you can't create your own Dockerfile to construct your own image that will run bamboo on top of windows.

First you'll need to create a Dockerfile based on windows:

Then you'll need to create a Dockerfile that does the equivalent to the Bamboo for Windows installation steps:

NB: sometimes the community site does strange things to links.  If you get a 404 for a link please copy-and-paste the link into your browser.

I hope that helps!

Ah, right, good idea. I can use the existing Dockerfile as a place to start. Hopefully the windowsservercore image is an appropriate base image for this.


Thanks for the help.
