Missing wildcard matching within tasks configured for deployment on Bamboo


Hi Team,

Bamboo states "Could not find file" whenever I use wildcard matching to match the war files with a version number similar to IP address. Doesn't Bamboo support wildcard matching. I verified that my regex works when i use it on Regex matchers like Regex101 but Bamboo complains about file not found though the war file exists.

Hi Aisha,

Bamboo artifacts only support Ant file copy patterns not regular expressions.

Kind regards

Hi Jack,

I have a war file in the format "filename-buildnumber.versionnumber.0.war". I want this war file to be removed before every deployment. How can I match the above file name for this purpose using the Ant file copy patterns?

filename - String

buildnumber - [0-9]

versionnumber - [0-9]

Wondering why do you need to delete this file each time...

Anyway if you need to ensure that your build/deploy plans always execute from scratch you should add the 'Clean working directory task' as the first task of your plan as shown below:




If this doesnt suit your needs,  be aware that you can use a 'Script Task' to run any command on your Bamboo Local/Remote agent to delete the file in the same way you will delete it using a the Terminal.

Kind Regards
