Adding Perforce repository to plan causes "Saving Repository" spinner to spin indefinitly

Bamboo: version 5.4.1 build 4207

I am trying to add a Perforce repository to a plan.  The P4V client is installed on the Bamboo server and has been added to the Server Capabilities as well as the build agents.   I plan on having this repository build locally on the Bamboo server.

The repository is on another server.  I can connect to this server with no problems when using P4V on the Bamboo server using the same credentials.

However, when I click "Save repository" the spinner just spins forever, and never saves.

The only thing I see in the bamboo log is one line.

Any ideas what is happening?

If I understood correctly you have configured Bambo to use p4v GUI client. You can't use p4v client with Bamboo because Bamboo can't enter credentials into GUI application. You need to point Bamboo to use CLI client p4.
