How does bamboo work with git?

With OnDemand expected to launch this month we were considering moving to github or bitbucket for our source code

1) Will OnDemand Bamboo support building from github/bitbucket? I saw http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/AOD/Linking+a+bitbucket+or+GitHub+repository+with+JIRA+OnDemand that links jira to git, but it didnt specifically state if bamboo can run tests post commit

2) Also if bamboo does run builds base on git, how does it run the tests? Say I commit 5 times to git then do a push, will bamboo run 5 builds on each commit or just get the current and do the build/tests on that?

Hi Chris,

1) Unfortunately Bamboo in OnDemand does not currently support building from external repositories, including Bitbucket and Github. We are working to eliminate this limitation in the not too distant future.

2) Just like with any other SCM, you can specify a quite period for Git. Bamboo will run the latest state within that quite period instead of running 5 builds.

Here is the documentation for the Git configuration: http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/BAMBOO/Git

Thanks Jens, looking forward to the integration. Any idea on the timeline, weeks, 3months, 6months, year?
