Supported platforms

This page describes the supported platforms for Bamboo 5.14.x.

Java

You only need to run the agent and server using a supported JDK. Agents can build software with any JDK version. 

Flavor Version Support Comment

Oracle JDK

1.8 (tick) yes

 

For Bamboo server, it is not enough to have just the JRE. Please ensure that you have the full JDK.

You can download the Java SE Development Kit (JDK) from the Oracle website.

 

1.7 (error) no
1.6 (error) no
1.5 (error) no

OpenJDK

1.8 (tick) yes -
1.7 (error) no
1.6 (error) no

Once the JDK is installed, you will need to set the JAVA_HOME environment variable, pointing to the root directory of the JDK. Some JDK installers set this automatically (check by typing 'echo %JAVA_HOME%' in a command prompt, or 'echo $JAVA_HOME' in a shell). You need to do this before installing Bamboo, as Bamboo will automatically configure JDK capabilities based on the system environment variables on your machine.

 

Operating systems

Bamboo is a pure Java application and runs on any platform, provided all the JDK requirements are satisfied. However, only the following operating systems are supported:

OS Version Support Comment

Microsoft Windows

- (tick) yes  

Linux

- (tick) yes

You should create a dedicated user to run Bamboo. Bamboo runs as the user it is invoked under and can potentially be abused. 

An example of how to create a dedicated user to run Bamboo in Linux:

$ sudo /usr/sbin/useradd --create-home --home-dir /usr/local/bamboo --shell /bin/bash bamboo
Solaris

-

(tick) yes -
OS X - (tick) yes -

 

Application servers

Bamboo runs on a bundled Apache Tomcat and it's the only supported configuration.

Databases

Database Version Support Comment

MySQL

5.7 (tick) yes

MySQL is supported when used with the JDBC Connector/J 5.1.   

Supported only with the InnoDB storage engine.

5.6 (tick) yes
5.5 (error) no
5.1 (error) no
5.0.x (error) no

PostgreSQL

9.2, 9.3, 9.4, 9.5 (tick) yes PostgreSQL is supported when used with the JDBC driver bundled with Bamboo.
9.0, 9.1 (error) no
8.x, 9.6 (error) no

Microsoft SQL Server

2012, 2014, 2016 (tick) yes SQL Server is supported when used with JTDS 1.2.8

Oracle

12c  (tick) yes  
10g, 11g (error) no  

HSQLDB

- (tick) yes

Evaluation only.

Bamboo ships with a built-in HSQL database, which is fine for evaluation purposes but is somewhat susceptible to data loss during system crashes. For production environments we recommend that you configure Bamboo to use an external database.

Web browsers

Microsoft Edge - (tick) yes Latest stable version supported.

Microsoft Internet Explorer

Version

Support Comment
Mercurial 1.7+ (tick) yes We support the latest minor releases of versions 1.7+

Subversion

1.5-1.8 (version requirement applies only to the server)

(tick) yes
  • Bamboo 4.2, and later versions, support Subversion 1.7, but use the Subversion 1.6 Workspace Format by default to keep backwards compatibility with older Subversion working copies. You can set the bamboo.svn.wc.format system property if your Bamboo plans need to use Subversion 1.7 commands as part of your build scripts. See Setting Bamboo to Support Subversion 1.7 Workspace Format for details.
  • Bamboo works with Subversion 1.8, and supports the 1.8 Workspace Format.

Git

with client 1.7.9+

(tick) yes On Windows, we recommend using Git for Windows.

Perforce

-

(tick) yes -

CVS

- (tick) yes -

Agents and custom images

Atlassian doesn't provide support for customized images. Bamboo provides flexibility to use customized machine images, but it's impossible for us to support all individual configurations.

Use Bamboo stock images as the base for all image customizations to ensure a minimal level of consistency of your Elastic Bamboo setup.

 

The requirements for agents and custom images are the following:

Java
