Missing "Enable remote agents" Bamboo Docker

Tarek Liedtke April 15, 2019



i did following steps :

$> docker network create bamboo
$> docker run -v bambooVolume:/var/atlassian/application-data/bamboo --name bamboo-server --network bamboo --hostname bamboo-server --init -d -p 8085:8085 atlassian/bamboo-server
$> docker run -v bambooAgentVolume:/home/bamboo/bamboo-agent-home --name bamboo-agent --network bamboo --hostname bamboo-agent --init -d atlassian/bamboo-agent-base http://bamboo-server:8085


then i added the bridge network to the bamboo-server

docker network connect bridge bamboo-server


i did this step to get access to my docker postgres.


After installation with custom postgres-db i navigate into Settings -> Overview -> Agents


But there are no remote agent to run my docker build tasks or any other option to enable remote agents, what did i wrong ?


kind regards

Hi @Tarek Liedtke

You will need to check the agent logs to really know what is the issue here, but my first guess is that your remote agent is not able to resolve the bamboo-server name.

This is one of the multiple ways to check the agent logs:

docker logs bamboo-agent

If you confirm the error about the name resolution, you will need to add the extra option in your agent container creation.


Then check the logs again, to make sure you are moving forward.

Please let us know your findings.
