How to configure Plastic SCM with Atlassian Bamboo

Follow these steps:

  1. Copy the Plastic SCM JAR file (download here) to the <Bamboo installation directory>/webapp/WEB-INF/lib directory.
  2. Restart the Bamboo service.
  3. Plastic SCM is available now in the Source Repository combo.
  4. Now you are going to configure the Plastic SCM client to connect to a given server.

    Since Bamboo is running as a service, you want Plastic to look for its configuration files in the installation directory rather than in the user profile directory. To do that:

    1. Create empty "client.conf" and "plastic.workspaces" files in the Plastic SCM client installation directory:
      • In Windows: c:\Program Files\Plastic SCM\client
      • In Linux: /opt/PlasticSCM/client
      • In MacOSX: /Applications/PlasticSCM/client
    2. Now configure the client running plastic --configure. Follow the normal steps in the wizard to specify your server and credentials.
  5. You are ready to use Plastic SCM in your Bamboo plans now. When you select the "Plastic SCM" option in the Source Repository section, you can specify the workspace selector. The default selector will use the "/main" branch on th default repository.
