How to secure AWS credentials by Projects

I have added AWS credentials in Bamboo for code deployment. This credentials is shared to all other deployment projects.

But, I want restrict only for certain deployment projects. How could I do that?

I checked this link,

It says I could edit, add or delete the credentials. I want to make it available for only certain projects.

I'm afraid Bamboo shared credentials do not support such granular scopes at this point - please watch and vote for the following issues to in increase Atlassian's priority for these improvements:

Potential workaround

Depending on your specific requirements, you may be able to work around the problem via user groups and a third-party app as follows:

  1. Reuse/Create an appropriate group that restricts deployment permissions to applicable users as desired.
  2. Rather than using Bamboo's native shared AWS credentials feature, you could use our (commercial) Identity Federation for AWS (Bamboo) app where you can scope AWS credentials by user group, which has the following benefits and constraints:

I did vote for that JIRA ticket. Meanwhile I saw a plugin from Utoolity to inject temporary AWS credentials.

Will it help for code deployment?

Hi @Purushothaman_Anbazhagan

I've updated my answer with a potential workaround based on our Identity Federation for AWS (Bamboo) app, which you can also 'just' use standalone to manage and use AWS credentials - conceptually it is a 'shared' app though and bundled for free with our other AWS integrations (works automatically), like the one you linked:

Depending on your scenario, Tasks for AWS (Bamboo) should indeed be able to help with code deployments, insofar its main feature set allows to provision and operate Amazon Web Services resources from Bamboo build and deployment projects. You can always try it for free and see whether it matches your requirements.

Hi All,  @Steffen Opel _Utoolity_ @Purushothaman Anbazhagan 

Thanks for the info. My question is also related to Identity Federation for AWS and how to use temporary AWS credentials in Tasks for AWS(Bamboo). 

We want to use Bamboo running on-premise which does the build and then, via, SAML/Active Directory to obtain temporary credentials, then assume AWS provisioned cd-deploy role to fulfill the deployment. 

We just installed Free Trial of Tasks for AWS (Bamboo) which includes Identity Federation for AWS, but I am not seeing any related section with hints to connect to SAML iDP to get the temp credentials. 

Any recommendations? 



Hi @Shao Cai,

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

I see that you have meanwhile asked this as a dedicated question About SAML 2.0-based Federation and Bamboo's solution for AWS deployment (very helpful, thanks!), so I'll provide an answer there later today.


Thanks Steffen, we want to explore more CI/CD tools except Jenkins, Bamboo is the one we are looking at as we are already using other Atlassian tool suites. If you want more info, I will be happy to discuss. Thanks
