Permissions (global and plan-based)
Different organizations, and different projects, have different security requirements. Some information can be made public, while sensitive information may need to be confined to a particular group of people.
Bamboo 1.2 gives you the ability to set security on individual build plans, as well as on your entire Bamboo system:
- Plan permissions allow your chosen users to perform a particular operation in relation to a particular build plan (e.g. view its build results).
- Global permissions allow your chosen users to perform a particular operation in relation to Bamboo as a whole.
External database support
Bamboo ships with a built-in HSQL database, which is well suited to evaluation purposes. When deploying Bamboo in production, however, you will probably prefer to connect Bamboo to an enterprise database of your choice.
Bamboo 1.2 now includes support for MySQL and Postgres. If you need to use a different database, generic instructions for connecting Bamboo to an unsupported database are also provided.
Perforce triggering support
We are pleased to announce that Bamboo builds can now be triggered by Perforce repositories (previously only Subversion and CVS repositories were supported).
You can now schedule your Bamboo data exports to occur automatically at a convenient time:
New Bundled NAnt plugin
Want to build your .Net projects on Bamboo? Now you can, with the NAnt plugin, which comes bundled by default with Bamboo 1.2.
On the topic of plugins, have you checked out the Bamboo plugins, home to a whole host of cool Bamboo plugins?
