I’m working on my first encounter of integrating Bamboo with a Docker Swarm cluster for continuous updates of an application services.
After some reading I found that inside Bamboo I can build my Docker images into files which I can pass as build artifacts. That got me wondering that I can use some good build promotion techniques to pass along an audited version between multiple environments.
However, I could not find any info in Swarm documentation if I am able to use a docker image file as a deployable image for Docker Swarm. All the info so far assumes the use of a registry. Of course I have nothing against using a registry but curiosity is getting the best of me.
So my question is: Can I use docker image files as deployable images for Docker Swarm?
