When you create a new plan, you specify the default source repository to be used for your plan builds. Bamboo checks out the code from the repository before performing all the subsequent tasks for the build.

Bamboo is able to connect to a variety of version control systems. For details, please refer to the following pages:

On this page:

If you are a Bamboo server administrator, you can configure a shared source repository. Shared repositories are available to all plans on the server.

Note that if you need to use an unsupported type of repository, a number of third-party Source Repository plugin modules are available (e.g. the ClearCase plugin). You can also write a Source Repository Module plugin to enable Bamboo to connect to your repository.

    I am not sure why there is no description in documentation regarding build of particular label?

    Is there a way to map multiple FishEye Repositories to a single Bamboo Plan?

      I would also like to find out if there is a way to map multiple perforce branches to a single bamboo plan.

    Anyone know why a Shared Repository wouldn't show up in a Plan's repositories (when I'm trying to create a project task for source code checkout) ?

    Do you have support for TFS ?

    I have the same question as one above me. Do you support TFS?!

  7. Bamboo doesn't get shipped with TFS support. However, you might want to consider using this third party plugin to add the needed functionality into Bamboo.
