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 the name, description, and deployment prerequisites
  • 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 of the function of your environment.
  3. Decide on the release approval policy the environment should use.

Deployment environments are added from the Deployment project configuration screen:

  4. Provide your deployment environment details.

  5. Select if you want to run your deployment in the agent environment or in a docker container. See Docker Runner.

  6. Select Create

    Your newly created environment appears with a red exclamation mark because no tasks have been defined for this environment yet.

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:
