Configure your CI server
Integrated CI/CD allows you to use configuration as code to set up and manage builds and deployments. This approach of storing your configuration as source code has many advantages – it enables easier automation, change tracking, validation, and more. For details, check out the benefits of configuration as code.
Before you continue, make sure you’ve linked Bitbucket Server with your CI server. Then complete these steps, which we’ll outline in more detail below:
1. Create a configuration file
Integrated CI/CD supports Bamboo and Jenkins, which use their own types of configuration as code files.
|CI server||Configuration file type||Documentation|
Bamboo Specs file
Jenkinsfile documentation on jenkins.io
2. Check the configuration file into the target repository
Once you’ve created your configuration file, check it into the Bitbucket repository you want your CI Server to build from. Then you need to configure Bamboo or Jenkins to detect it.
3. Configure Bamboo or Jenkins
If you use Bamboo, you need to configure Bamboo to scan Bitbucket Server for Bamboo Specs.
If you use Jenkins, you need to configure a Jenkins pipeline and specify the Bitbucket repository to build from.
Then when your build starts, it will appear on the Builds page. Here you can:
