When is the Ubuntu stock image going to be updated?

This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: stock images

The Ubuntu stock image for Bamboo AMI is based on Vervid, which was EOL'd in Feb. 2016 (https://lists.ubuntu.com/archives/ubuntu-announce/2016-January/000203.html).  It should be pointed out that basing the image on a non-LTS release was painfully short-sighted.  The 16.04 release, Xenial, will be supported until 2021, which would be an ideal update for Ubuntu stock image.  Any chance this could be expected in the near future?

Xenial images will be released with Bamboo 5.13, which should happen within a week or two.

1) Is this the best image I should use for a custom elastic-bamboo AMI? 

https://maven.atlassian.com/content/repositories/atlassian-public/com/atlassian/bamboo/atlassian-bamboo-elastic-image/6.0. If i read the contents of atlassian-bamboo-elastic-image-6.0.ami I get per-zone AMIs.

2) Is this AMI compatible with bamboo server? https://confluence.atlassian.com/migration/bamboo-server ?

3) Where is the best place I can read about elastic bamboo AMIs? Where is the best place I can ask for support?


Please advise, thanks.


  1. Yes.
  2. Yes, it's the same image we would use for cloud.
  3. Depends on what kind of information you need. Typically, it's best to SSH into the agent instance and look around.

Thanks! I had trouble with docker in the latest ubuntu images (6.0) so I posted another question https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/45836972. Hope this helps some other people.
