Reuse job in different stages

I have a job (with a script task) defined in Stage A to deploy the artifacts to QA environment. The inline script which deploys the artifacts to the destination server is parameterized. Now in the next stage, I want to deploy the artifacts to my integration environment.

I was wondering if I could (re)use the same job in this new Stage to deploy the artifacts to the higher environments (integration in this case)?

I am afraid you have to recreate the job in the other stage as well. There is no way to share the jobs or clone the jobs. 

A best practice is to have a build job that generates the artifact and then have a deployment project with environments defined under it. 

I appreciate your approach with having a deployment project with different environments defined. But then I was missing the functionality of having a fully automated pipeline which starts from triggering the build and end up in deploying it to the prod environment (obviously with some manual stages in between). As far as I know, deployment project is kind of an always manual step. Let me know if I am missing something obvious here.

You can adda trigger in the deployment environment. So, a full cycle is always possible. Check out

In Bamboo 6, the feature called Bamboo Specs lets you define the plan in a textual format. You can then very easily reuse the job between stages.

Thanks Przemyslaw Bruski. Is it possible to export an existing job/stage/plan as a code?
