Add repository gives an error


I am getting the error while adding repository.

Below is the error.

  • New access key is required but could not be added to Bitbucket Server.
  • com.atlassian.bamboo.executor.CancelException: /usr/local/git/bin/git could not be started: command [/usr/local/git/bin/git version] failed with code -1. Working directory was [/]. []


Can anyone help.

Thank You!!

Hey @manoj reddy

It seems that you have a git capability issue there.

Please check the resolution steps shared in that link and try to share here the results you get.
