Run tests on a remote windows machine

Hi there,


I am building a linux driver using bamboo Ci and I want to kick off tests from a different windows machine(As we already have the test framework built in that way and I am not willing to disrupt the mechanism),


I wanted to include this job as a part of build process so that when the test fails build fails as well.

Is there a way to achieve that, Please note that I don't want it to consume an extra license for the same plan.

You can achieve this by using a Window remote agent.

As Bamboo dispatching is based on Jobs, you can configure your test tasks on a different job from your build. Example:

Stage 1: Build Job

Stage 2: Test Job

It's also important to have them in different stage as Jobs in the same stage runs in parallel. Capabilities are based on jobs. So it is possible to have your Linux agent running your build job and your Windows remote agent runs your test job after your build job have completed.
