Is it possible set remote agent build working dir before authorize on bamboo master server?


I am interested on automating bamboo remote agent and I would need change build working directory before authorize it on the bamboo master server. Is there any property or method to do this?

I think is not possible to do what you need. I tried to find a way to do it, but I couldn't.
When I did the automation of the installation, I had to install the agent first, then stop it, change the file and restart it, as Daniel, suggest you.
I think it could be a interesting feature to add to next releases.
I just opened an issue in the Community about this:

Hi Carlos,

The default build directory of a remote agent is:

You can either install the agent in a different location or just change the build-dir location by doing the following:

  1. Install the agent.
  2. Stop the agent.
  3. Edit the <AGENT_HOME>/bamboo-agent.cfg.xml file changing the value for buildWorkingDirectory property to the new location.
  4. Start the agent.
  5. Aprove it.

You build a script to install the agent and change the build-dir as you need.
