How do I select a Bamboo Remote Agent with Bamboo Specs

Paul June 7, 2018

I have had a query from one of our users who has started using Java Specs in Bamboo.  When creating a 'spec' for deployment he wants to be able to select a remote agent but can't see a way of doing this. Is this possible? 

Many Thanks

Hi Paul,

One possibility is to add a custom capability to your agents and then set this capability as a job requirement.

For example, I've added a custom capability called agent with the value "agent1" to one of my agents and in my specs code I defined this capability as a job requirement:

 public Plan plan() {
final Plan plan = new Plan(new Project()
.key(new BambooKey("PROJ"))
new BambooKey("PTES"))
.stages(new Stage("Default Stage")
.jobs(new Job("Default Job",
new BambooKey("JOB1"))
.requirements(new Requirement("agent")
return plan;

You can do the same thing for deployment projects.

Is this a feasible solution for you?
