Overall Satisfaction with Bamboo

Bamboo is being used for automating our build process e.g., achieving continuous integration (CI) in a dev and test environment. This is being used by our specific department and will be used by other departments over the time. Bamboo has helped us to streamline continuous integration, branch merging. And with integration with Active Directory and JIRA we can get an excellent tracking.
  • Easy installation
  • Integration with Atlasian products
  • Simple build configuration
  • More cost efective plugins
  • Slows as user base and builds increases
  • Granular email notification
  • Better CI saved us time
  • Better Code quality
  • Multiple users were abel to work due to CI
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
  • We had multiple teams working on the same code base so we wanted a good CI and well-defined plans and triggers to make sure bad code is not committed,
  • Easy to use UI helped us to get new resources easily onboard
  • Bamboo helped us to execute the build on specific triggers making sure they are compliant
