What is Bamboo?

Bamboo is a continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD) software tool developed by Atlassian, the company behind other popular tools like Jira, Confluence, and Bitbucket. It is designed to automate the process of code deployment, allowing developers to automatically build, test, and release their software.

What does the RapDev’s Bamboo integration do?

The RapDev Atlassian Bamboo Integration for Datadog streamlines your CI/CD pipeline management by offering real-time insights into your Bamboo setup. It alerts you to the operational status of your Bamboo cluster and remote agents, monitors CI/CD build sizes, and tracks failed build metrics across projects, plans, and branches.

Agent Status: Know Which Agents are Active and Ready to Perform Tasks

Ensure your projects never skip a beat with live updates on agent status, making it easy to keep your operations efficient and your tasks on track.

Get Status of Failed Build by Project, Plan, and Branch

Quickly pinpoint and resolve failed builds with detailed insights by project, plan, and branch, keeping your development on the fast track to success.

How to set up the Bamboo integration

  1. Install the integration (Linux example).

sudo -u dd-agent datadog-agent integration install --third-party

  1. Copy the `conf.yaml.example` file.

cp /etc/datadog/conf.d/rapdev_atlassian_bamboo.d/conf.yaml.example

  1. Follow the steps in the [Atlassian Bamboo - Personal Access Tokens] to create a new API token. The token should be read-only.some text
    1. Because you are utilizing a user token, add the user to each project you wish to monitor, allowing the API token to access data from the project.

  1. Fill in the ‘bamboo_url’ and ‘api_token in the config:


  - bamboo_url: "http://localhost:8085"
    api_token: {{YOUR_API_TOKEN}}

  1. Restart your Datadog Agent.

  1. Validate integration by running the agents status subcommand:

sudo -u dd-agent datadog-agent check rapdev_atlassian_bamboo

The RapDev Atlassian Bamboo integration comes equipped with a ready-to-use monitor and dashboard offering a comprehensive view and the ability to correlate various aspects of observability that users can leverage while monitoring their Atlassian Bamboo environments.
