Building a GitHub project
GitHub uses public-key cryptography and SSH to authenticate your repository. Create a readonly deployment key so that Bamboo can access the repository (http://github.com/guides/providing-your-ssh-key).
exec ssh-agent bash and
ssh-add your-deployment-key before running Bamboo. Bamboo will use the key stored in the agent to fetch the changes from GitHub.
Fire up Bamboo and create a new Project Plan.
The plugin adds the “Git” option to the repository dropdown:
You enter the git respository URL and branch.
Select the “Repository triggers the build when changes are committed” build stratergy. This tells Bamboo that GitHub (via a GitHub service hook) will trigger the build whenever someone commits changes to the repository.
NOTE: The trigger on change feature has stopped working since github moved from the http://www.engineyard.com/ to rackspace. Bamboo’s TriggerRemoteBuild class checks that the IP address of the source repository matches the IP adress of the build trigger. The trigger now comes from a different IP and is rejected by Bamboo. I have raised the following jira with the bamboo team: BAM-4713
The work around is to poll the repository for changes.
Next, add a GitHub service hook to trigger the build. Go to the repository’s Service Hook page and enter a Bamboo updateAndBuild request. The bamboo updateAndBuild request looks like this
