Highlights

Install Bamboo Data Center on Kubernetes

DATA CENTER

If you're running self-managed environments and looking to adopt modern infrastructures, Jira, Confluence, Bitbucket Data Center, and Bamboo Data Center can now be deployed on Kubernetes clusters.

By leveraging Kubernetes, you can efficiently utilize your organization's infrastructure. You can easily scale your product up or down, and manage and schedule your workloads. This can drive greater agility amongst your teams while experiencing a simplified administrative experience at scale, without compromising your organization’s regulatory requirements.

We offer Helm charts on GitHub for installing and operating Atlassian products on a Kubernetes cluster of your choice.

Helm is a package manager for Kubernetes that allows you to package, configure, and deploy applications and services onto Kubernetes clusters. Helm uses a packaging format called charts, which are collections of files that describe a related set of Kubernetes resources.

The Kubernetes cluster can be a managed environment, such as Amazon EKSAzure Kubernetes ServiceGoogle Kubernetes Engine, or a custom on-premise system.

Here’s an overview of the architecture:

Bamboo Data Center now with support for single sign-on

DATA CENTER

For admins looking to simplify user management in Bamboo Data Center, we now provide support for SAML 2.0, OpenID Connect, and Crowd single sign-on right out of the box. All of these solutions integrate into your existing infrastructure, providing developers with a more secure and hassle-free way to log in.

We support a large list of popular identity management providers including Okta, OneLogin, Azure, Active Directory (ADFS), Bitium, and PingOne.

On top of that, you can also use just-in-time user provisioning and blocking authentication with username and password in the login portal and API calls.
