Running Jenkins as a node/slave/remote agent

Is it possible to run Jenkins as a remote agent for Bamboo. My company has 1 application that must be compiled on a mac. Right now we are using manual build process but I'd like to get this into our bamboo model for more consistency. Is it possible to build ruby/ember applications remotely with bamboo without running an agent on the assigned mac? Can I trigger a build with jenkins with bamboo? I'm trying to avoid having to purchase agents for just this single app when we'll be getting it updated in the next year or so to be buildable on a windows box.

Hi Mark,

If you have Jenkins and Bamboo running on the same server, and your Jenkins build can be triggered from a terminal / command line client, you can call this command line in a Bamboo Script task in a local agent.

If Jenkins and Bamboo run on different servers, you can also use a Script task, but you will need a Remote Agent.

Kind regards,

This worked perfect, thanks!
