How to use "Run Bamboo jobs in Docker"


After 2 years I've returned to Bamboo and I've decided to use new (at least for me) functionality - "Run bamboo jobs in docker". But I do not understand how to use it.

I would like to start Java compilation in openjdk:8 image. I've configured a job to run in docker but how to properly execute a command in such docker, should I use Script task and "docker run ..." or is it a better way?

Hi @Michał Szymański ,

Under job configuration, there is a Docker tab where if you specify the image then the build will run inside that image.

What do you mean by 'build', I've configured job as you showed and I've created one test 'script' task that had one command 'hostname' and I've got name of host name not docker container. 

Should I use 'special' task that can be run inside docker image?


Yes, the task. But to run this task in a Docker container, you'll have to specify an image in the Docker tab. As shown in the screenshot.

Strange when I execute script with hostname it showed host name not docker name but when execute 'java -version' it showed java from docker :) Simply it works :) Thank you :)
