Plan directory information REST API

A reminder about future changes to on-disk directory layout

A future release of Bamboo will make changes to the layout of the on-disk directory structure for artifacts and logs. These changes are necessary to make functionality more robust. If you are relying on scripts or other tools that examine data in the Bamboo home directory, you will need to update them to ensure that they continue to work.

To make this easier, we have added a resource to the Bamboo REST API to retrieve information about where on disk log files and artifacts will be stored. We have made this available in 5.9 so that you can prepare for the changes.

For more information, see Plan directory information REST API.


This section will contain information about the Bamboo 5.11 bugfix releases as they become available. These releases will be free to all customers with active Bamboo software maintenance.
