How to migrate from the Bamboo AWS Plugin to Tasks for AWS (Bamboo)

You want to migrate from the deprecated Bamboo AWS Plugin to its successor Tasks for AWS to gain new features and improvements and commercial support:

Step-by-step guide

Unfortunately there is no upgrade path from the Bamboo AWS Plugin to Tasks for AWS for technical reasons outside of our control. To ease the migration, you can start using both apps side by side and mix and match tasks from each within a job.

1. Install Tasks for AWS.

2. Start creating tasks from Tasks for AWS exclusively for new plans.

3. Replace existing tasks from the Bamboo AWS Plugin with the functionally identical (though possible extended) tasks in Tasks for AWS. Both sets of AWS related tasks can be differentiated as follows:

  • Tasks for AWS supports the new Bamboo 5 Deployment Projects, so you'll only find one set of AWS related tasks in a deployment project

  • Tasks for AWS features updated icons with a 3D appearance via shadows

  • Tasks for AWS has simplified task names (except for the CloudFormation task):

Providing an explicit (automated) migration option is not out of the question, but a disproportionate amount of work for us right now - please get in touch, if your use case requires a migration option regardless, we are willing to discuss this on a case by case basis.
