We’ve collected some important notes on upgrading to Bamboo 5.6. For details on all the new features and improvements we’ve introduced in this release, see the Bamboo 5.6 release notes.

Upgrade notes

Here’s some important information you should know about before upgrading.

Bitbucket Server notifications and the Bitbucket Server web repository type are deprecated

Bitbucket Server notifications and the legacy Bitbucket Server web repository type are deprecated in Bamboo 5.6 and will be removed in Bamboo 5.7. Use the Bitbucket Server repository integration available in Bamboo 5.6, which is based on application links, to replace that functionality.

Upgrade time

When scheduling the outage window for the Bamboo 5.6 upgrade, keep in mind that upgrade task 4407 which is executed during the update may take up to 45 minutes to complete on large instances, depending on the size of the VARIABLE_CONTEXT table. For a more precise calculation, assume that 10 minutes are needed to process 15 million records in that table.

The Installer package on MAC OS X can't be opened due to code signing requirements 

This issue was found in Bamboo 5.4 and still applies to Bamboo 5.6.

Previously, Mac OS X required binaries to be Developer ID signed in order to run out of the box. Without signing, users would receive a warning that the app isn't from the App Store or a registered Apple Developer. Users were able to apply a workaround to solve this problem.

The latest version of Mac OS X (10.8 and above), however, now reports that the Bamboo installer for Mac is corrupted rather than being blocked by developer ID.

Please see BAM-11742 - Getting issue details... STATUS for more information. Additionally:

  1. The Mac installer will not be available until this has been resolved
  2. There is a temporary workaround available here.

This is a small bug with our installer. Please rest assured that we are working on a permanent solution to this issue.
