Bamboo 6.9 upgrade notes
We’ve collected some important notes on upgrading to Bamboo 6.9. For details on all the new features and improvements we’ve introduced in this release, see the Bamboo 6.9 release notes.
Here’s some important information you should know about before upgrading.
Project View permission
Bamboo 6.9 is release with a new project permission - View. The project view permission is a prerequisite for accessing any plans as it takes precedence over plan permissions and without it, you won't be able to access plans for which you might even have Admin permissions.
When upgrading, the View permissions will be given automatically to Bamboo users who previously:
- had any permissions to the project OR
- had any permissions to any plan within in the project
Bamboo 6.9 comes with TLS hostname verification. If Bamboo agents use SSL connection to server and certificate has incorrect host name, the Client Broker settings must include the
socket.verifyHostName=false parameter to URL.
HTTP/ HTTPS connector for JMS dropped
The HTTP/HTTPS connector for JMS was dropped from Bamboo 6.9. We advise to use TCP/SSL instead.
AdoptOpenJDK in stock elastic images
With Bamboo 6.9 we’ve changed Java 8 and 11 to AdoptOpenJDK as default on stock elastic images. Oracle JDK is still present in images and can be used. You can find Oracle JDK in the following locations:
/opt/jdk-8u172 (Ubuntu/Amazon Linux)
This release of Bamboo does not introduce any changes to supported platforms. For more information about what the latest stable release of Bamboo supports, see Supported platforms.
