How often are you out of the office when a build happens? What can you do? You have few options; you can head back to office, pull out your laptop (if you have Wi-Fi), or pull out your smartphone.
Now with your smartphone there is a better option for checking on your builds, introducing Stix for Bamboo from Addteq. If you open your Bamboo instance in your smartphone’s browser, you’ll notice it is not optimized for a mobile device. We addressed this by creating Stix for Bamboo. By using native interface elements in creating the app, we made it easy to access Bamboo while on the go. No longer feel the need to head back to the office because you cannot see what is on your screen. Simply open the app, login, and navigate to what you want to see.
Are you a project manager with a release ready to go but you are out of the office? Stix for Bamboo solves this problem, simply open the app and navigate to the project and plan you’re ready to build and with one step, your project is building and ready to deploy. In no less than three selections, you can have important details about that recent failure. Want to know what files were changed? That is possible as well, with just a couple more selections. Want to leave a comment on the build for the developer? You can do that too, just as though you were sending a text message. There are numerous features including easy reading graphs of plan statistics, detailed and downloadable build logs, and, most conveniently, the ability to start a build while on the go.
Are you a development lead out of town or out of the office? Just get an email that a build failed and want to find out which team member caused the failure? Simply open the app and navigate to the latest build and see whose commit triggered the build. Want to know the exact files they changed? From the build detail screen, it is as simple as one more selection.
