Bamboo can send Instant Messaging (IM) notifications about its build results. There are two steps to setting this up:

  1. Configure Bamboo to use Instant Messaging (see below).
  2. Configure a plan to send IM notifications about its build results (see Configuring notifications for a plan and its jobs).

Please note, Bamboo supports XMPP protocol for messaging. This means Bamboo can be used with Gtalk or your enterprise XMPP server.

  1. From the top navigation bar select cogwheel iconCommunication > IM server.
  2. Enter the following details:
