Docker Isolated Environment


Currently I am able to run docker containers as a docker task. Now I am trying to get a docker isolated environment working.


For some reason I am not able run a script task.

/tmp/ 4: /tmp/ /var/atlassian/application-data/bamboo/temp/ not found


My assumption is that the script is being created after the docker container has been created.


Would really appreciate the communities expertise

Hey Daniel,

I haven't had time to investigate this further. But essentially the issues kept arising whilst trying to use bamboo docker isolated environments whilst running a bamboo instance inside a container. 

In the future I hope to revisit this issue. Thanks for your time!

That is so strange, yeah, come back when you have time to investigate this.
Thank you for your reply! =]

Hi @joshysav

I was able to reproduce this scenario by removing the volume mounting point from the job docker runner configuration.

I've opened this bug to report this issue:
[BAM-20643] Docker runner: removing volume breaks job tasks.

If your problem is exactly the same, please try adding back the volumes needed for the right plan operation.

Go to Job configuration >> Docker >> Volumes and make sure you have the following volumes configured:

|Host directory             |Container directory        |
|${} |${} |

Let me know if that fixes the issue.


Hey Daniel,

Thanks for taking the time to reply!

I had these volumes added. But still seem to getting this issue.

Hi @joshysav

As your logs show the error is different now, which is progress.
Investigating this new error I was able to find a bug:

Can you please confirm if the docker image you are using specifies a user different other then root in the docker file?
This problem was fixed in 6.7.0. Can you share your Bamboo version?

Thanks Daniel.


I am not specifying another user. 


Bamboo version 6.9.2 build 60911

Hi @joshysav

Is docker runner working with other docker images?
Would you mind checking this?

We might be facing a different issue and isolating the problem will help us to understand what is causing it. It would be even better if we can reproduce it.
