How to queue deployment jobs for multiple environments at once

Edited

Hi,

Our application is single tenant. This lead to many application server instances as every client has its own.

We have one bamboo "Environment" per application server instance.

These are regrouped under "Deployment projects".

How can we ask Bamboo to deploy a given release to all the environments of a "Deployment Project" without having to click each of them one by one ?

I am not asking how to run multiple jobs in parallel, I know the answer is more agents.

What I want is to "queue" all the jobs with one click.

I was looking for a deploy button at the deployment project level but can not find it.

 

Thanks !

You can workaround this problem using "After successful deployment" trigger:

- create a dummy environment, named for example 'All servers', make it do nothing  (for instance single script task with nothing but 'exit 0' in it)

- add After successful deployment trigger to all other environments and point to 'All servers' environment

Now whenever you deploy 'All servers', all the other environments will be triggered.

 

BTW: if you manage a big number of deployment environments perhaps you should consider using Bamboo Specs.

Thanks, I did not knew about Bamboo Specs.

A limitation of the trigger solution is that it does not allow to select the release, it will create a release from the last built.

But this could work in most cases.

 

Thanks!

Actually, no, in case of this trigger, he same release that was deployed to 'parent' env is deployed to 'child' env. So you would create release once, when deploying the dummy environment and the it should propagate to all envs.

OK thanks,

 

it is this text in the trigger form which confused me:

 

Set triggers to specify how and when the deployment will be triggered automatically. When a deployment is automatically triggered, a new release is created from the latest successful build result of the linked plan. 

@Marcin Gardias  So this setup will run environment parallel or sequentially ?

Depends on number of available agents, but, in principle, it will be parallel.

@Marcin Gardias  Is there possible to run sequentially? If so, please share the details.
