Configuring remote agent capabilities using bamboo-capabilities.properties
You can define the capabilities for a specific remote agent by using a configuration file on the agent machine. When the Bamboo agent starts up, it will look in the current working directory of the remote agent Java runtime process (i.e.
<bamboo-agent-home>/bin when the remote agent is started with the
<bamboo-agent-home>/bin/bamboo-agent.sh script.) for a file named
bamboo-capabilities.properties. The capabilities defined in that file will then be published for the Bamboo agent after registering.
We are aware of an issue that prevents a remote agent capability from being updated once it has been added using the
bamboo-capabilities.properties file. If you choose to add capabilities with the
bamboo-capabilities.properties file, you will only be able to update them by deleting the capability in Bamboo and restarting the remote agent. Please see BAM-4213 for further details.
If the remote agent is started without the wrapper supervisor (as explained here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/bamboo/additional-remote-agent-options-436044733.html) then the current working directory for the Java runtime of the remote agent will be the directory where the java command is run. In this case the
bamboo-capabilities.properties file needs to be located in this directory.
To configure remote agent capabilities:
- Shut down the remote agent, if it is running.
- Create a file named
bamboo-capabilities.propertiesin the current working directory of the Java runtime process of the remote agent (i.e.
<bamboo-agent-home>/bin) on the agent machine.

- Use '\' to escape spaces, periods and backslashes ('\').
- All capabilities, other than custom capabilities, should start with '
