This page describes how to install a plugin in Bamboo. You can use plugins to customise and extend the functionality of Bamboo.

A number of plugins are available from the Atlassian Plugin Exchange. You can also create your own as described in the Bamboo Plugin Guide.

Adding a plugin from the Atlassian Plugin Exchange

Go to the Plugin Manager in Bamboo:

  1. Log in as a user with the 'Admin' global permission.
  2. Click Administration in the top navigation bar.
  3. Click Plugin Manager, in the left-hand panel, under 'Plugins'.

To find a plugin in the Atlassian Plugin Exchange and add it to Bamboo:

  1. Click the 'Install' tab in the UPM. You will see a list of featured plugins.
  2. Search for your plugin as follows:
    • Enter some keywords that describe the plugin in the 'Search the Plugin Exchange' search box and press 'Enter'.
    • Alternatively, browse to the desired plugin in the list. You can choose 'Featured', 'Popular', 'Supported' (by Atlassian) or 'All available' from the 'Plugins to show' dropdown to see a different list of plugins.
  3. Click the 'Install' button for the desired plugin to add it to your application. A confirmation message and the plugin details will appear when the plugin is installed successfully.
    Note: You may need to restart your application for your change to take effect. The Universal Plugin Manager will inform you if this is the case.
    Note: Not all plugins can be automatically installed. Some required manual installation. These plugins will have a 'Download' button instead of an 'Install' button. In these cases, you should read and follow the plugin's installation instructions.

Now, restart Bamboo with the plugin installed.

Notes

  • In Bamboo, you can install and uninstall both version 1 and version 2 plugins using the Universal Plugin Manager. You will see an Install or an Uninstall button.
  • Some entries that you find listed in the Universal Plugin Manager are not actually plugins. These entries will show a Download button that allows you to download the application to your desktop and run it.

    That is not correct for plugins 1. You have to manually copy them to WEB-INF/lib
