Bamboo Plugin

Run your FrontLine simulations from your Bamboo CI.

Purpose of this plugin

This plugin enables you to start a Gatling FrontLine simulation directly from your Bamboo platform. This plugin links a Bamboo job with one Gatling FrontLine simulation.

This plugin doesn’t create a new Gatling FrontLine simulation, you have to create it using the FrontLine Dashboard before.


To download the plugin, you need to get the jar file located at:

You need to be connected as an administrator of your Bamboo application to install it. Go Bamboo Administration, Manage Apps, Upload app, and choose the jar file.



The plugin needs some global configuration. Go to Administration, then Global variables.

Add two new variables:

  • The first one is named frontline.address, and corresponds to the address of your FrontLine, for example:
  • The second one is named frontline.apiTokenPassword, and corresponds to the token needed to authenticate to Gatling FrontLine. To fetch it, refer to the section Managing API Tokens in the FrontLine User Guide.

A new Gatling FrontLine simulation will be started every time the job is run. Check the logs to check the simulation progress. If the simulation ran successfully, it will look like the following:

Console output

If the Gatling FrontLine deployment fails (i.e. because of a shortage of available hosts), the plugin will retry 3 times to redeploy the simulation.

Live metrics will be displayed in the console, and in the build summary.
