Jira OnDemand with standalone/download/local Bamboo


I would like to ask if and eventualy how to use Atlassina OnDemand WITHOUT Amazon EC2. We would like to use our own Bamboo server either:

- Bamboo OnDemand + remote agent installed on our server


- Bamboo standalone linked to our Atlassina OnDemand

Is there any way to do it? Does eventualy Atlassian offer using Bamboo OnDemand with some other hosting service such as Hetzner instead of expensive Amazon services?

Thank you

It is now possible to link a self-hosted Bamboo instance to JIRA OnDemand with OAuth applinks (here's an example with JIRA and FishEye). We recommend that people use this option if they do not wish to use Amazon Web Services for their agents.

Bamboo will need to be accessible on HTTP through port 80 or HTTPS on 443. You can potentially use IP restrictions to lock your Bamboo instance down further if desired.

Please note that the only functionality this will provide in OnDemand is the ability to use the Bamboo gadget - the Bamboo plugin is only for Bamboo OnDemand licenses.

Altassian Folks,

Bamboo on demand is useless if you do not allow people to register their own remote agents...

There is a growing number of services that provide a full development env much richer than amazon. If I use such an env, I don't want to be forced to go to amazon for CI?

I also don't see any technical reason for not supporting this. Secure endpoint for remote agents to connect...

This is a huge dispointment...

Unfortunately, the answer is no to all of those combinations. Bamboo OnDemand is only configured to use EC2 (it is a restricted function with Bamboo).

Well, not sure then. There is a similar post where another Atlassian employee says that it should be possible or you (Atlassian) can make it possible. Can you please clarify it?


You can use Bamboo standalone in a limited way with OnDemand. Specifically you can have your standalone Bamboo use OnDemand's SVN server. However, there is no integration beyond that (e.g. no standalone Bamboo -> JIRA OnDemand integration).

Micheal, is there no way to have standalone Bamboo (latest GA) authenticate users against OnDemand deployment (via Crowd and/or LDAP?)

Unfortunately not. OnDemand's Crowd is locked down to requests from outside the container.

One limitation is your Bamboo server must not utlize a self-signed certificate as we are unable to add additional certificates in OnDemand
