Enable dark feature flag when running Bamboo as a service


How does one go about enabling dark feature flag for getting REST Endpoints used for administrative purposes in Bamboo. ?

Bamboo is running on Windows Server

It is running as a Windows Service


I cannot seem to find official documentation on getting this configured then enabled and initially tested ?

http://stackoverflow.com/a/35208685 but appears to not have worked (as it's running as a service)

https://bitbucket.org/atlassian/atlassian-bamboo_rest  the usage section again adding to setenv.bat and restarting bamboo did not work (as initially expecting)

https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/BAM-9344?focusedCommentId=862591&page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel#comment-862591 this mentions adding, but where exactly ?

Managed to find this buried in the knowledge base


I did the 'Setting properties for Windows services via the Windows registry' method and can appears to be activated now

I added this to the end of Options within the registry setting

And I have kindly supplied the curl request to!

curl --silent --user "$username:$password" --header "Accept: application/json" --header "X-Atlassian-Token: no-check" "http://bamboo:8085/rest/admin/latest/config/general/"
