Synchronising remote agent capabilities with Bamboo Server
When an existing remote agent reconnects to the server, its capabilities are synchronized with capabilities defined on the server. A remote agent’s capabilities can be defined in the following ways:
manually in Bamboo server (in the UI or by using REST)
automatically detected by the agent
The capabilities’ sources given above are listed in order of priority. If capability is defined in several places then the capability is taken from the source with highest priority. For example, if an agent’s capability has been defined both in Bamboo server and in the
bamboo-capabilities.properties, the value of capability defined in Bamboo server is going to be used. A current source of a given capability can be checked in a remote agent capabilities page in Bamboo.
Note that modifying the
bamboo-capabilities.properties file requires restarting the agent in order to synchronise capabilities with the server.
