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
To create a new deployment environment you will need to:
- Provide a name that represents your environment e.g. Test or Production.
- Provide a description that describes the function of your environment.
Deployment environments are added from the Deployment project configuration screen:
Creating a new deployment environment
- From the top navigation bar, select Deploy > All deployment projects.
- Select the edit () icon for the deployment project you want to edit.
- In the Deployment project configuration screen, select Add environment.
Provide your deployment environment details.
Select if you want to run your deployment in the agent environment or in a docker container. See Docker Runner.
Select Create.Your newly created environment appears with a red exclamation mark because no tasks have been defined for this environment yet.
See Tasks for deployment environments for more information on task configuration.
Using the deployment environment panel
All deployment environments are managed from the Deployment project configuration screen. By default, when the screen loads, each environment panel is displayed in its collapsed state. Select Edit to expand the deployment environment panel:
When expanded, the environment panel shows three separate sub-panels:
The three sub-panels provide the following functionality:
