We are evaluating Bamboo to integrate with our current development and release process, but we have a few questions.
In order to meet compliance, we need to have a defined workflow, with permissions to certain steps. Our current release management software has the following workflow:
Is there a way in Bamboo to assign certain stages to certain people? Is there a way to prevent future steps from happening unless the previous steps were successful or (in the case of #2) approved?
Also, I think it would be good idea if you would check the following blog post about upcoming Bamboo 5 -> http://blogs.atlassian.com/2013/05/version-management-jira-bamboo/ - I think that you're actually wanting features that will be released with the version 5.0. Maybe you should even evaluate Bamboo 5 demo to check the deployment support.
Maybe it's not worth to integrate with Bamboo using Stages for your workflow, but rather wait for Bamboo 5 and utilize the power of "Environments" and "Deployments"? (see the linked blog post for what am I talking about).
Note: I'm not the Bamboo owner here (I'm just a developer) so I might be wrong as to the company plans.
I think Bamboo will be released sooner than the Summit - I don't think that we want to wait with all that stuff till October. So I'm guessing Bamboo 5.0 will be available in the next two months. Maybe sooner.
Yes, you can control who initiates a build by assigning users or groups to the BUILD permission. And there are Build Dependency Blocking strategies that you can setup to prevent a build from running.
However, you may need to program your own set of checks to prevent unapproved builds. One way would be a task that checks for the approval and fails the build if its not approved.
