How do I deploy old artifacts in Bamboo

I want to deploy artifacts from an old (i.e. not current) release, but the Artifact Download task always downloads from the latest build. Is it possible to deploy from a prior release, and if so, how?

Bamboo provides deployment releases to enable this:

Releases are used to track exactly what software was deployed to an environment. In essence, a release is a snapshot of any number of artifacts that will be used in the deployment process and their associated metadata, such as JIRA issues, code changes and any test metadata that might be relevant to what is being deployed. [emphasis mine]

The emphasized part points towards the solution, namely that said artifact snapshots aka deployment releases can be used to deploy any former release, as further illustrated in How artifacts and deployment releases work together. Once at least one release is available, you can then always Manually start a deployment:

Deployment projects can be viewed and managed from the 'All deployment projects' screen. Think of this as a dashboard view of all of your deployment projects. You can also start deployments from this screen.

On this screen, you can 'Select a release to deploy', either by 'Creating a new release from build result', or by 'Promoting an existing release to this environment':


Thanks for your reply. As it turns out, this was all my problem, but it is resolved now.
