bamboo docker image question

I played with bamboo/docker a few days, and I wonder whether the below should work?

  1. A bamboo plan is configured and it uses image
  2. is updated from my PC.
  3. Run the 1) plan.

The problem I see, is that at 3, updated image is not being used.  Instead, image from the previous build (before remote registry update) seems to be used.

I wonder it this is an expected behavior or some problem in our bamboo/docker's configuration.  And, if the behavior is an expected one, which is the workaround to force bamboo plan to use updated image from remote repositry?

You should be able to run the up-to-date image is, as a first step in 1), you do 

docker pull my-remote:5000/my-repository:latest

If you just do a docker run, docker will check in your cached images, and it will not check your registry for a more up to date image.

Thanks, yes, but bamboo’s ‘Docker configuration’ setting page only provides the choice of one of the following 3.

“Build a Docker immage”
“Run a Docker container”
“Push a Docker image to a Docker registry”

I wonder if I need to do “pull” outside of this ‘Docker configuration’


That's one of the reasons why I don't like the docker task. I'd rather do everything in a script that I have full control off and that I can put in version control, rather than fill boxes in a web form.
