While in a testing phase, it is helpful to re-run only segments of a plan. In my example, the initial stages are more time consuming, but they are mature and run without problems. I disable them to speed up the testing phase, hopefully addressing only the later parts of the plan. So far so good. The problem I am encountering is using multiple agents. If my plan crashes on agent 1, I make some changes and re-run it, there is no guarantee that it will run on agent 1. If it is launched on agent 2, there is no history of the previously successfully completed stages/jobs. The physical location on disk is different:
bamboo-agent-home for agent 1
bamboo-agent-home2 for agent 2.
With only two agents, I get 50% chance of hitting the right one. I cannot imagine having more agents...
Is there a way to specify the agent I want to use? In the past I used the admin setting to disable one agent. It only worked because no-one else was using bamboo at the same time.
1. Define a custom capability on your agent - https://confluence.atlassian.com/bamboo/defining-a-new-custom-capability-289277149.html#Defininganewcustomcapability-Defininganagent-specificcustomcapability
2. Configure the build to have that capability as a custom requirement - https://confluence.atlassian.com/bamboo/configuring-a-job-s-requirements-289277064.html
