Reverse-engineering bamboo.yml

I have been handed a bamboo.yml file from a previous developer, at a time when there was a bamboo server. I now need to translate the bamboo.yml to a manual build process, but I can't see a way to import this file to create a build plan using the local Bamboo installation I have set up.

Is anyone aware of a way to turn a YAML spec into something human-readable?

Share it here maybe it's possible to translate it into Bamboo Specs

I wish I could but it's for a proprietary product so I am prohibited from sharing any of the code, including build scripts :/

I was hoping there is a generalised way of doing this since otherwise what is the point of having export functionality?

It was experimental feature. Our research proved it's not direction Bamboo can support in long run, that's why it was changed to Bamboo Specs approach. 

Then you can create support request and our support engineers might help you

Hi @Alexey Chystoprudov,

you mean the yml-specs are not supposed to be improved anymore, hence advised the use of java-based dsl?

@[deleted], my comment regarding experimental feature was about YAML export functionality added at Bamboo 5.14. In Bamboo 6.0 this approach was changed to Java Bamboo Specs, then in Bamboo 6.2 YAML Specs feature was added.

It has really limited features. We're reviewing feedback from customers to see what features of YAML Specs should be covered in next releases.
