Bamboo Reviews & Product Details

Bamboo Overview

What is Bamboo?

Bamboo is Atlassian's continuous delivery and release management tool. It offers first-class support for the "delivery" aspect of continuous delivery, tying automated builds, tests, and releases together in a single, integrated workflow. Bamboo gives developers, testers, build engineers, and system administrators a common space to work and share information – while still keeping sensitive operations like production deploys locked down. Got Git? Bamboo puts branches under test automatically, as well as merges and deploys them according to your team’s processes. And because Bamboo is from Atlassian, it boasts the best Bitbucket and JIRA Software integration available.

If you works with tests you can use the jobs in Bamboo to run your tests in parallel Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The same plan configuration is used for other branch build, it would be nice if we could create a different plan for different branch plan Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

In our organization, we use Bamboo for continuous integration and continuous deployment. Using this we save a lot of time. Almost all things related to building, testing, integration, and deployment can be automated here. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The agents used for building our applications sometimes take a lot of time to start. I have faced my build to be in Queue waiting for the agent to came online. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

Visibility into the build process and separating deployments from builds is great. We like the seamless integration with JIRA and Bitbucket. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Some of the concepts are slightly confusing and the integrations aren't really clear. You can kick off build releases in JIRA, but they only trigger build plans, never deployment plans, for example Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Make sure you model your continuous integration and how your different projects build and deploy together, before starting. Don't go into all the details but have a general idea. Then take that into a first prototype and improve as you go. Make sure you immediately start with Java-based configuration instead of UI-driven configuration, so you'll be able to easily track changes and roll back/review new build plans. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

For the most part we wanted to have a centralized build mechanism that is not command-line based, and insights into build successes, which tests run and fail, and an ability to access the build artifacts easily. Later we started using it to start deploying those build artifacts into local network instances and further down the road into cloud instances. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

The most thing I like more about Bamboo is that it is very easy to create steps for a build plan. You have a lot of options you can use during the creation of a plan. You can add task of many types, like: Ant, Tomcat, Docker, Gulp, Maven and more others... For sure the most important is the integration with Git. Very useful to configure build for repositories. One thing I love is the direct link to the artifact that the build has produced. You can download it locally when the build is finished. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it stuck when you try to stop a build and you have to refresh the page to continue. I get this issue more than one time. It can be just an issue but it is not so rare to found it. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I strongly recommend to integrate Bamboo with the others Atlassian tools.Thanks to this integration you can easy start an automatic build on every commit on Bitbucket (for example) with very few configurations. More over thanks to integration with Jira, you can link an issue to a build (like why you need that build or what caused that build). Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Obviously what you will solve with Bamboo are problem like Continuous Integration, Build Automation and deploy of the artifact. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

It works. Out of the box. Well, you have to migrate to a proper database (the default installation uses an embedded H2/HSQL), but even that is not a hussle. There's a log analyzer that reports on the health of the server. Automatic backups on your schedule. The distinction between build and deployment projects and artifact sharing. Support for multiple deployment environments and tracking the deployed versions/builds for each environment. Agent infrastructure, so you can have build agents on different platforms. Great maven integration. Plenty of add-ons for integrating with peripheral tools such as SonarQube, Artifactory, npm etc. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Not much. Not zero, zilch, zip, nada, nothing, nil or null, but so little it does not directly come to mind. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

1. Nice set of features for Maven and npm builds.

2. Plenty of add-ons on the Atlassian market-place, most free.

3. Administration is straight-forward.

4. Build and failed build RSS feeds can be consumed by monitoring software.

5. Buy agent licenses if you need to build for multiple platforms (e.g., if your main platform is Linux and Java and you have installed Bamboo on Linux, to build .NET projects you'll need an agent on a Windows server, to build IOS apps you'll need an agent on a Mac) Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have Java and Node.JS code to Kubernetes deployment pipelines in place for multiple projects and use Bamboo for continuous integration and delivery. The pipelines involve package publishing on Maven or npm and SonarQube analysis. We use Atlassian BitBucket (git repo, formerly Atlassian Stash) for source code control and they fit like a hand and a glove.

The mobile team also runs their builds on Bamboo, we have a dedicated Mac Bamboo agent for iPhone builds. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Integration with Atlassian stack, you can:

* view builds and releases that are related to specific issues

* run builds by releasing out of JIRA directly

* display build/deploy reports in JIRA and Confluence

* view code changes and reviews that are related to your builds

It also has excellent support for Maven out of box, making it very easy to:

* configure build plans for projects that use Maven

* release codes that uses the Maven release plugin

There are also 3rd party add-ons you can use (for on-prem) for things it does not support out of box, or if you want, create your own add-ons. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Outside of Maven, its support for other build tools is not as good. Especially when it comes to making releases. Because it uses the maven-release plugin, there are some "magic" it uses, which is not available in other tools, and you will end up writing command line scripts to work around it to have the same result.

What do you like best?

The basic build automation process, though not flashy, is probably the biggest win for us. One of the specific features we rely on is the ability for our Bamboo build process to parse Junit report outputs. We have written a number of validation tests that are executed during the validation portion of our builds. Note that that may not be novel from a software perspective, but we also have a number of configuration repositories against which we also run these validation steps to identify errors in the configuration and/or changes that should not have been made. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

We work with a separate team responsible for the actual configuration and behind-the-scenes work, so from where we sit there are a few things that just "magically" work or fail horribly. Something that we have had difficulty with is parsing the captured output during the build process. Often we find stdout and stderr messages not being captured and viewable in the web interface. This usually results in "big stick" poking about to try to resolve the issue versus more targeted resolution that cleaner logs would allow. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

We've really benefited from the Build Automation and CI/CD capabilities of Bamboo and it's integration with our Bitbucket and GitHub repositories. I recommend this for folks looking for a CI/CD solution. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We've seen a significant improvement in our ability to track and resolve build issues as well as managing build artifacts. Previously, we were relying on manual builds with moderate success. Being able to tie automation into our build process has really made a difference. We regularly utilize the "Latest Successful" build artifacts in our process and we've been able to avoid introducing errors on multiple occasions. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

My company uses Bamboo to build upon commits to our Bitbucket repository, run unit tests and deploy to our various test, staging, and production environments.

Bamboo has a painless installation process, helpful quick-start guide, simple build configuration, and seamless integration with JIRA. Bamboo supports builds in any programming language using any build tool, including Ant, Maven, Make, and any command-line tools. Polling strategy can be easily configured and scheduled. It comes with configuration templates like ANT, Bundler and so on.

Support provided is real good and integrates with other IDEs easily. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Does come with lesser plugins and its not very flexible. Bamboo is really limited for a modern day tool, that too for a CI tool, where things aren't done from scratch. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

If you are already using Atlassian products like Jira, stash, Confluence etc, then it makes sense to use Bamboo. Bamboo will integrate closely with other products in Atlassian ecosystem.

What do you like best?

Easily configurable for project granularity. For example, I can define the relevant git repository's branch to a build project/job, provide the necessary build tasks with lots of different executables and scripts, and segregate the build from the release stage with parallel jobs for only specific users or groups. Lots of popular language integrations with multiple notification methods and great integration with other Atlassian products. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Free only for first 7 days (as of June 25, 2015), although for only $10/mo for 10 jobs for 1 remote agent, it's a solid option for those ready to use enterprise-ready tools like Bamboo and its brothers and sisters of Atlassian products. I hope that there becomes a greater focus for mobile applications. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Fast and contiguous partitioning of build and deployment tasks. Bamboo is a chiefly a continuous integration tool, but it does great in assisting with deployment issues and segregating build tasks to allow you to debug your code. Automated merging of branches is also a great feature. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
