Using the Bamboo dashboard

The dashboard is your Bamboo 'home' page. The dashboard has three tabs:

  • My Bamboo— a convenient summary of information that is relevant to you (only appears if you have logged in to Bamboo):
  • All Plans — a list of plans and each plan's latest build result.
  • Current Activity — Bamboo's agents and build queue, showing which plans Bamboo is currently building and which plans are waiting to be built.

You can return to the dashboard from anywhere in Bamboo by clicking Dashboard in the top navigation menu.

Viewing the dashboard

You can:

The icon next to a build number indicates the plan's current status:

 This plan's latest build was successful.

 This plan's latest build failed.

 Bamboo is currently checking-out the source-code for this plan, in preparation for starting a build.

 Bamboo is currently queuing a build for this plan in the Build Queue.

 Bamboo is currently executing a build for this plan.

 The plan is stopped at a manual stage.

 The plan was not built, perhaps because the build was manually stopped.

 This plan has been disabled.

Filtering the plans

You can filter the plans on your dashboard according to plan labels. For instructions on how to add a label to a plan, see Working with labels.

To filter the dashboard plans by label:

  1. Navigate to the dashboard.
  2. Click the button. If the plan already has labels, they will be displayed next to the button, otherwise the button will read Filter Plans.
  3. In the 'Filter Plans' dialog, select the labels to filter by.
  4. Click Save. The dashboard will refresh, showing only the plans with the selected labels.

Working with favourites

The My Bamboo tab lists your favourite plans — that is, the plans you work with the most. You can easily add and remove plans from your favourites.

When you add a plan to your favourites, you become a 'watcher' of the plan. This means that you will receive notifications about the build results for your favourite plans, depending on how your administrator has configured each plan's notifications. You can receive notifications by email, Instant Messaging (IM) and RSS feed.

To add a plan to your favourites:

  1. Click Dashboard in the top navigation bar, to display the dashboard.
  2. Click the All Plans tab. This will display a list of all plans in your Bamboo system.
  3. Locate the plan and click the grey star icon at the right.

    I don't see the  button anywhere on my dashboard, and I'm logged in as an administrator.  Please can you add a screenshot showing this button, and some advice as to why it might not appear?

    Is there a way to filter by label directly in the wallbooard URL? We have a browser 'slideshow' set up to cycle through browser wallboard tabs, but the problem with using a filter is that the filter applies to all tab, and we would like to see one label per wallboard tab.
