How to set a requiremet for an executable in a Bamboo.yml file?

How to set a requiremet for a job in a Bamboo.yml file? I've read the article here:

But it does not help at all.

When I write the name of an executable bamboo tells no agent can run this test (but in the list of the executables there are agents with that capability).


- 'Doxygen (Linux)'

Where Doxygen (Linux) is the name of an executable.

Hi @Tempfli Gellért

You need to use the full capability key to make it work.
When the requirement is configured through the UI, even though there is just a name there, it has the right key loaded in the background (DB). When using this type of configuration in specs you need to provide the right key.

I'll open a request to improve this feature so you don't need to use the full key name to make it work. [BAM-20322] Setting a requirement in YAML specs leads to no agent can build this job.

This is how you get the full key:

  1. Go to Admin >> Overview >> (Server capabilities or agent capability)
  2. Hover the mouse pointer over the selected capability
  3. Check the name on browser status bar
    Please notice that "+" (plus signs) need to be changed to spaces.


Please let me know if you have questions on this.

Excellent response, many thanks @Daniel Santos!
