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.

To configure Bamboo to use Instant Messaging:

  1. Click the  icon in the Bamboo header and choose Overview.
  2. Click IM Server in the left navigation panel (under 'Communication').

  3. Click Edit.

    HostThe address of your IM server (for example, '').
    PortThe TCP port that your organization uses for IM traffic (or leave this field blank to have Bamboo either perform a DNS lookup or use the default port).
    UsernameThe login name of the IM account from which Bamboo notifications will be sent.
    Change passwordSelect this if you have specified a username different from the currently logged-in user.
    ResourceAn identifying name for the connection if multiple clients use the same jabber account.
    Requires a TLS/SSL connectionSelect this if your IM server uses SSL.
    Force legacy SSL 
    Test Recipient AddressYou can test this configuration by entering an address and clicking Test,
  4. Click Save.
