easiest way to transfer projects and plans to another bamboo instance

I'm just starting out with bamboo.

Is there a clean / simple way to export build and deployment projects (and their constituent plans) from one bamboo instance and then import them into another bamboo server instance? 

I've seen references to Bamboo specs but it's not obvious if this is the best option.

 

Thanks!

It depends on complexity of your plans and scope of data you want to transfer. 

If you need only configuration - use Bamboo Specs.

If you need build results + build logs and artifacts then the only option is to use instance backup, there's no functionality to export/import project or plan.

Is configuration defined as the actual projects, plans etc. without any associated build results, logs and data?

yes. It's possible to export existing plan/deployment configuration into Java code and use this code to create plan/deployment at another Bamboo instance

Hi @timothy schmidt, there is a way to export a full configuration of you actual bamboo instance to the new one.

Here the official documentation @link

If you have any question let me know.

Cheers.

Thank you.

When importing the backup to a new host/instance,  are there any specific items that must be manualy addressed somehow? Like the change in the new bamboo instance's base URL (new host)   or the change in it's serverID  ( BE4D-2Q5X-2GCX-RG7X ) etc.?

Are there any compatibility rules or matrices for this type of action?

Eg.  Can I take a 6.6 configs/plans EXPORT file and import it into a 6.7 instance if the DB versions are the same? If this action is extended to artifacts and logs too, do compat. restrictions change?

Related ... are there any tools to cross check a server's configuration AFTER an import?

It seems like the capabilities are out of whack (expected ). But, I would think there would be an admin option to "check" a servers' configuration that could catch  bad or "out of sync" server configurations, etc. 

 

Thanks!
