Simple Bitbucket pipeline with Bamboo

There isn't an only way to perform this, however, this is especially useful where Bamboo script task may not have support for tty. Running docker exec -it is not supported, so commands can not be passed as input to a running container. 

This example illustrates a use case where multiple services are required to perform an application test, and they can be spawned with containerization.  At the end of the test, we would like to parse the result.

Step 1: 

Create the executable script in a location in the repository. The script should contain the necessary instruction to run and perform the test for the project 


#script goes here i.e.
npm install

npm run test

Step 2:

Create a Dockerfile with an ENTRYPOINT of a script to be run in when the container is started 



# Copy all project into the container working directory
COPY . ./app

#make the script an executable
RUN chmod a+x

#Specify the interpreter to run the script
ENTRYPOINT ["/bin/sh", "" ]

Step 3:

Create a docker-compose.yml to orchestrate the container and required services

version: "3.7"


mage: webapp
container_name: C-NAME
context: ./
dockerfile: Dockerfile

# map the volume to the host filesystem, this will be useful if a test
# run by the script produces result that should be parsed by a Bamboo task

- ./test:/app/test-reports

# add the required services
image: IMAGE

Step 4:
Example of a Bamboo YAML Specs managed plan
version: 2

# List of plan's stages and jobs
- Building to run the custom test within docker container:
- Build
- Parse Test Results:
- Test

#Job definition
- script:
- docker-compose up -d
- script:
- docker-compose down
- test-parser:
type: junit
test-results: '**/test/*.xml'
