    Manage agents via REST APIs

    Manage agents via REST APIs

    Admin config to set maintenance rules

    Easy to consume from shell scripts

    Manage Capabilities

    Central configuration of rules to determine if, and how many agents may go offline to perform maintenance at once. Combined with simple crontabs this provides a hands-off and automated build agent farm.

    Maintenance and status endpoints support text output that can be immediately consumed by shell as variables.

    i.e.

    $ source response.txt

    $ echo "Agent busy? ${BUSY}"

    List and purge agent specific capabilities for fully automated lifecycle management of agents and their capabilities.

    This API is of tremendous help to us for automating and managing capability roll-outs to our growing agent landscape. An essential plugin for Bamboo for admins. The plugin's user-guide is also a valuable source of information of how to achieve automation. https://eddiewebb.atlassian.net/wiki/display/AAFB/User+Guide Thanks Eddie!

    Made more difficult to use since Atlassian discontinued the REST API Browser for Bamboo. With regard to managing agent capabilities, this is a blunt tool, limited to "list all" or "delete all". There's no ability to add/remove/update specific capabilities.

    Thanks Richard. Feel free to create a feature request and explain use case you dont see being met.

    The use case it serves now is for full tear-down and rebuilding of agents without impacting build availability or having false capabilities present. You can define new capabilities via the default auto-detection and custom ones with the properties file each agent uses. To enable this we expose a clean-slate approach to delete all capabikltiies before new ones are defined.

    This is a basic API to control the agents from the Bamboo Server. It has been very useful in setting up our agent reset structure. Having status returned as JSON or bash-readable helps a lot too!

    Fantastic! Why Atlassian don't provide this by default is beyond me!
