Prevent Bamboo from automatically adding JDK capabilities

Is there a way to prevent Bamboo from automatically adding JDK capabilities?

When I install JDKs on my agents, Bamboo automatically creates "JDK" and "JDK 1.6" capabilities. I do not want these capabilities, and I have to keep deleting them when they reappear.

Could you restart your Bamboo agent after adding -DDISABLE_AGENT_AUTO_CAPABILITY_DETECTION=true flag?

This will disable automatic capability detection on the agent.



I tried it and it doesn't seem to work. I had an auto-detected capability "JDK" which I deleted via the admin panel for the agent.

In the agent's wrapper.conf I have :

Does this look right? On restarting the agent it auto detected a JDK capability again and re-added to the agent.

One thing that may complicate this is that my agent uses a custom file in the BIN directory that specifies a list of capabilities. The "JDK" capability that is auto-detected is NOT in that file.

My use case is that I use the properties file to define a specific list of capabilities and do NOT want the auto detected capabilities to be rediscovered and listed.

I'm having the same issue did you ever resolve this issue?

I've tried addig it to the wrapper.conf file as well as reinstalling the service using

java -Ddisable_agent_auto_capability_detection=true -Dbamboo.home=D:\bamboo-agent-home -jar atlassian-bamboo-agent-installer-3.4.4.jar <servernmae> installntservice

Nothing seems to work, ever time I restart the Agent it auto finds the JDK capabilities.

My Remote Agent is on a Windows 7 PC for doing .NET builds.

Dealt with in more detail in largely duplicate question:

I suggest closing this in favor of that.

Actually we got around this by adding a custom capabillity to the agents we don't want certain jobs building on and then added that capabillity as a requirement to the plan's we want to only build on those agents.

That helps you target those specific agents for the builds that need them but that doesn't prevent other builds from also selecting them as valid build agents does it? (Assuming those other builds just need the JDK capabilities that is.)

In either case the ticket I referenced is about the same issue only has more discussion and a link to the upstream ticket filed requesting this feature. I still think this ticket should be closed or marked as duplicate but <shrug>.
