Remote Agent Download

I am new to Bamboo and I want to run the remote agent service. I don't have the ability to download the remote agent .jar from My Bamboo. However, the remote agent was enabled by the person who has administrative rights. How do I get the remote agent running on my laptop, if I do not have the ability to go to overview and personally enable the agent and download the .jar?

Hi Jarrett,

You do need the JAR to start the remote agent on any machine. As I understand, you do not have administrative permissions on that Bamboo instance. In that case, the person who enabled remote agents (an administrator) should download the JAR and send it to you using any available file sharing method. Then use that JAR to start the agent. You do not need any extra steps, because - as you mentioned - remote agents have already been enabled for that Bamboo instance by someone else.

Please refer to this documentation page for additional information: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/BAMBOO/Bamboo+remote+agent+installation+guide

Hey Marcin,

That has me on the right track. I am however still experiencing an issue when executing the java -jar command and pointing to the downloaded file. I was wondering if you may know what the cause of the remote agent not be executed could be. In the file is the command that I wrote and the errors caused by the command.

you're starting remote agent with URL http://maxwell.leidos.com/bamboo/agentServer, see HTTP protocol and port 80 is used by default

But when agent start it tries to connect to https://maxwell.leidos.com/bamboo/agentServer, see HTTPS protocol here and port 443 is used by default, but server refuses connection to port 443. You need to confirm with your administrator what is client broker URL is configured for Bamboo server or provide you access to port 443

Alexey,

 

Thanks, I understand. Currently were are seeking SSL licensing for the server. Is there possibly a work around, or is it preferable to just wait for the license to take affect?

Jarrett

If your server uses SSL with non valid certificate look at our documentation - https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/BAMBOO/Securing+your+remote+agents
