Run CLI Actions in Bamboo

Important Notice

After careful consideration, Run CLI Actions in Bamboo will be retired and archived on the Atlassian Marketplace on December 15, 2022. Current customers and evaluators were informed of this change on September 15, 2022. Please contact our support team if you have any questions.


Atlassian Command Line Interface (CLI) actions can now be run directly as part of a Bamboo build. This enables developers and build administrators to easily include in their build processes various Atlassian product actions. For instance, creating or updating JIRA issues, creating or updating Confluence pages, or queuing more Bamboo builds. This gives a lot of flexibility for extending build processes and deployment possibilities.


  1. Supports all clients included with the Atlassian CLI distribution (with the same version number)
    • Bamboo
    • Confluence
    • JIRA
    • Service Desk
    • Bitbucket
    • HipChat
  2. Any server instance supported by the Atlassian CLI can be accessed for running actions depending on having valid user credentials for the actions requested. This is the same as running the actions from a command line. This includes Cloud installations.
  3. The add-on bundles all the Atlassian CLI capabilities. Easy to install and upgrade with the Universal Plugin Manager (UPM).
  4. Action scripts can be inline within the task or reference files from the working directory or file system
  5. Passwords in the CLI output are suppressed

Get Started

Part of our Atlassian CLI Family of Tools

  • Some Atlassian CLI clients require a connector app be installed on the Atlassian application that is intended to be accessed. Connector app installation must be done by a system administrator.
  • The Atlassian CLI is not just a powerful client based interface, but is also available as an embedded service in Run CLI apps and other apps! Run CLI app installation must be done by a system administrator.

Connector Apps

Run CLI Actions

    • Provides a connection between clients included in the Atlassian CLI app and their corresponding Atlassian application instance. 
    • A system administrator must install and license a connector in order for a client to run actions for the application instance.
  • All-in-one embedded solution.
    All the power of every CLI client —embedded in your Atlassian app.  
  • Execute CLI actions right within your Atlassian apps:
    • via workflow functions or UI in Jira
    • via macros in Confluence
  • Integrate and automate any CLI supported external app. 





  1. Bamboo is not available for Cloud.
  2. Bitbucket connector is not available for Cloud as the Bitbucket Cloud client does not need a connector.
