Trouble using docker with bamboo running on windows

I am trying to use bamboo with docker for the first time. My bamboo is running on windows. So I install docker machine. I am using Azure driver where a Ubuntu VM with docker is up and running.

It has been setup correctly. docker machine is started. I can use command line to run docker containers. I am configuring docker task to run a container. I see a warning that "no agent has this capability"

So I need to know how to tell bamboo that docker machine is configured and running and it should use that to run docker containers.

You need to follow the steps outlined in Defining a new Docker capability that are appropriate for your agent configuration:

You need to define (that is, 'register') a Docker capability in Bamboo before you can use a Docker task in Bamboo builds and deployments.

It sounds like you plan to use your local agents, so likely section 'Define a Docker capability on the Bamboo server' applies to your scenario:

  1. Click the  icon in the Bamboo header and choose  Overview.
  2. Click Server capabilities in the left navigation panel.
  3. Use the 'Add Capability' panel at the end of the page to add the new Docker capability to the server:

    • From Capability type, choose Docker.

    • For Path, enter the path to the Docker executable, for example /usr/bin/docker.

  4. Click Add.

I know this is an old question but on a windows server what would the path be for docker? The only examples given are for unix based systems.
