Does bamboo agent support simultaneous/parallel builds?

My objective is to build multiple plans using a single remote agent at the same time. At present, build gets queued until the previous build using is completed, to run the next build. Does bamboo support this kind of parallel builds as is available in jenkins slave?

Hi Deepthi,

How about using Bamboo Concurrent Build Feature?

https://confluence.atlassian.com/bamboo/configuring-concurrent-builds-289277193.html

Thanks!

I find this answer troubling. The user is clearly implying multiple plans concurrently building on the same agent. Your link has nothing to do with his question aside from the work concurrent. It only works for the same plan on different remote agents, as Rafael stated below.

Please take the time to read the question before posting a reply on behalf of Atlassian.

Hello @Deepthi Bhat,

Remote agents do not run multiple jobs at the same time, even if you enable concurrent builds. The feature my colleague mentioned (Configuring concurrent builds) enables you to run the same Job in multiple agents, instead.

Kind regards,

Rafael

Is this purely to ensure users have to pay more for additional remote agents or is there a technical reason concurrent builds are not supported?
