Name of the parent process when running Bamboo

Jan Hlavac October 6, 2022


I'm looking for a parent process name that would help me recognize whether or not is Atlassian Bamboo running just by looking at all running processes

Since Bamboo is written in Java, I expect the parent process would be Java process itself.

Therefore if there is Bamboo running and only one Java process is present, I can assume that this parent process is running Bamboo. Is that correct?

Thank you!

Best regards,

Hey @Jan Hlavac

You are right. If you have only one Atlassian application running on the server, and no other Java programs around, searching for "bamboo" and "java" on the process list would be enough.

As a pro-tip, you can declare a custom Java property without any real application value, just to ease your search, such as -Dprocess-name=Bamboo. Then use that string as your search pattern.

Thank you,

Hello @Eduardo Alvarenga

That seems to be exactly what I was looking for, and thanks for confirming my assumptions with the "java" process.

I will also look into Java properties, this could be useful later as well.

Thank you for your help!
