Connection Issues

Make sure you have Gerrit setup correctly with SSH identity key generated and host used in the SSH connection string added to known host. Detailed instructions are available in the Gerrit documentation.

Note: Some builds will still hang in native msysgit mode on Windows due to the following issue with the bamboo-git-plugin:

You can work around this issue by manually adding your hostname, used in the repository configuration, to the msysgit/.ssh/known_hosts file. Example: ssh-rsa XXXXB3NzaC1yc2EAAAADAQABBBBgQC699HzXHwr1H6OJeVlRo7h4r+3PY d0wNkqzl6EUAeU2iZjqFqQL2ZiNVqs2JrpTNadbgtXBNk9rhQIWajQZG9ZJG/OPxe+NOkbWQVev rcELsw5N2wxcJOWz+ey1tFv3VCtNCLUGgF7yIg0kZZVQ+HvAzLoMbiHs0haVmEjnLherSw==

NullPointerException Encountered after Upgrade

If this is an upgrade, and you encouter a NullException when attempting to build, you may need to resave your repository settings.Release 1.2.3 changed the way the ssh private key is stored for multiple repositories. Resaving should resolve this issue.

Unable to Delete Repository

This is an old issue and has been fixed in new releases of Bamboo. Here's the ticket.


If problems persist, you can turn on debugging in the Administration console to help resolve and report issues. Steps to turn on debugging:

  • Goto Administration->System->Log Settings
  • Add com.houghtonassociates.bamboo.plugins=DEBUG

Check your Bamboo home directory for log output:

Ex: bamboo-home\logs\atlassian-bamboo.log
