Creating a deployment environment

 

Once you have created and configured your new deployment project, you can create environments for it to deploy to. Bamboo allows you to create multiple deployment environments and also allows you to manage:

  • Environment details such as name and description
  • Tasks
  • Triggers
  • Permissions
  • Agents
  • Notifications
  • Variables

To create a new deployment environment you will need to:

  1. Provide a name that represents your environment e.g. Test or Production
  2. Provide a description that describes the function of your environment.

Deployment environments are added from the Deployment project configuration screen:
