In Bamboo is it necesary to check out code for every job ??

I am a newbee in Bamboo

I have a C++ application running on a linux box which I want to build and once I am done I want to run the unit test, probably in a different stage ... is it possible...

Also we do make install to install our application... how can I do that using bamboo...

Any help is highly appreciated...

if you run your unit tests in a different job or stage, you will need to either share artifacts built before or checkout again and built those artifacts again.

The easiest way to get this done would be to just use a new task within your build job. (Remember: a stage is a collection of (potentially parallel) jobs. A job is a collection of tasks executed in sequence and on the same build agent (and thus operating on the same file system directories) - see here

To do "make install" you could use a script task (run locally) or a combination of SCP and SSH tasks.
