We selected Bamboo because its capabilities to integrate with other Atlassian products specially Jira Software, Bitbucket and in some useful scenarios with Confluence. Also, we found these pros important for us: great user interface, easily agent deployment, Docker compability, simply to maintain / manage, and straightforwardly integration with different notification platforms.

Bamboo's ability to integrate with Bitbucket and Jira (the other two key systems we use) pretty much sealed the deal on our decision to choose Bamboo over other alternatives. Being able to map every build result back to the relevant code changes and Jira issues are just too valuable for us.

In the beginning we had selected Bamboo and were down the path of going all in for all of our projects. However after about a year we decided that Azure DevOps was better suited for our business needs. We are now in the process of migrating everything off of the Bamboo platform into Azure.

We used Jenkins before for our projects.
While Jenkins has an extensive plugins list that makes it more flexible to integrate it with other tools, we switched to Bamboo for nicer User Interface but mostly for the seamless integration with Jira and Bitbucket. Also Bamboo has more built-in features compared to Jenkins.

Bamboo is great tool when compared to the open-source alternative Jenkins, with mainly the same functionality in both it really shines with its integration of the Atlassian product line. Jenkins works really well with a huge community of users and plenty of plugins that are open-source as well, as compared to Bamboo which has a small community and plugins that can cost lots of money.

We chose Bamboo over Jenkins for 2 reasons - one, for its tight integration amongst all the products in the tool suite. We find explicit value in the traceability from JIRA issues all the way down to the Bamboo build that was triggered by the check in of those issues. The second reason was for support - we didn't want the burden of figuring out how to support Jenkins in our production environment, as can be the case with so many open source products.

We selected bamboo after a thorough review process, we considered the following aspects:
  • Ease of use, cost, scalability, plugins, setup and maintenance, community and product support
  • Made sure it integrated with JIRA and Confluence
  • Notification and tracking aspects
  • Ability to create multiple plans, build integration
  • Ability to drill down from a nice UI into a raw log file also helped

As with all Atlassian products, the best part of Bamboo is the integration into their full suite of software. Getting started with Bamboo from a Stash or Bitbucket code repo is as simple as clicking a button, and all downstream changes are immediately tracked and updated. Atlassian has made a huge effort to ensure that the dashboards to monitor build and deployment plans are both useful and informative, and it has paid off in a big way. Users can start, stop, change, monitor, create and delete plans from the push of a single button. Overall, Bamboo is great at:

* Rapidly setting up build plans

* Being a central hub into all activity your company is a part of

* Offering an intuitive UI

* Allowing power-users to set up powerful CI/CD pipelines

* Unit testing FTW

I use bamboo because it is mandated as the CI/CD solution to use across the organization that I work for. If I were working on my own project, I would almost certainly use a free solution like Travis CI or just spin up my own build servers using Docker, AWS, or something like that. Bamboo is good for CDK because it provides a lot of infrastructure to handle many many builds across an organization, and CDK has thousands of employees.

Bamboo won solely based on the fact we were "all-in" with Atlassian. TeamCity is now in the process of taking over as we transition off of Bamboo, and I think TeamCity stacks up nice against Bamboo thus far (too soon to tell).

Bamboo integrates directly with our bug system (JIRA) and source control system (Bitbucket). It allows us to get what we need to done without worrying about how it works with our other systems.

Bamboo is hands-down the best of these options if you rely on other products of Atlassian origin. Bamboo is not just built for teams, but teams-of-teams and teams of many workers. It has the administrative features you need to manage and maintain CI at scale. Enterprise model is for access control, management, and support.
