Run your Gatling Enterprise simulations from your Bamboo CI.
Purpose of this plugin
This plugin enables you to start a Gatling Enterprise simulation directly from your Bamboo platform. This plugin links a Bamboo job with one Gatling Enterprise simulation.
This plugin doesn’t create a new Gatling Enterprise simulation, you have to create it using the Gatling Enterprise 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 Gatling Enterprise, for example: https://demo-beta.gatling.io
- The second one is named frontline.apiTokenPassword, and corresponds to the token needed to authenticate to Gatling Enterprise. To fetch it, refer to the section Managing API Tokens in the Gatling Enterprise User Guide.
Add a new build task called Gatling FrontLine. Choose in the Gatling Enterprise Simulation list the simulation you want to use.
You can display the results of the Gatling Enterprise assertions with the JUnit Parser plugin.
Add a new build task called JUnit Parser and fill the Specify custom results directories input with the following line:
GatlingFrontLinetask, or it won’t read the results of the new run.
A new Gatling Enterprise 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:
If the Gatling Enterprise 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.
