BlazeMeter Plugin to Bamboo

What is Bamboo?

Bamboo is a Continuous Integration tool by Atlassian. Bamboo does more than just run builds and tests. It connects issues, commits, test results, and deploys so the whole picture is available to your entire product team – from project managers to devs and testers, to system admins.

The BlazeMeter plug-in to Bamboo allows you to load test your site using BlazeMeter, as part of your Continuous Integration/Delivery(CI/CD) process.

When using the plugin, Bamboo will show a report generated by the BlazeMeter test. and based on the results it will set the final build status as good or failed.

This plug-in is currently available for Bamboo Server instance only.
