Bamboo CLI addTask does not work for fields that have values with colons


I've been having trouble using the bamboo cli to create a AWS S3 Object task. The bamboo cli uses a comma separated list where the fields are mapped to their values via colons

--fields field1:value1,field2:value2

However, this fails when the value contains colons, such as in the artifactToUpload field for the AWS S3 Object task:

-1:1:1:DEPLOYNAME: all artifacts

I noticed in the bamboo logs that the request ends up only using the value up until the first colon, so using the example above, only -1 is used in the request and fails.

However, when I switched to using the --field1 --value1 syntax, the call worked fine and created the task in bamboo. But since I had to go up to field7 using this syntax and since parameters field3 and above are deprecated, I was wondering if there was a workaround to getting this to work using the --fields parameter.

Use multiple field parameters to specify one field at a time - it is a bit easier.

In general, if you have CLI parameters that are comma and/or colon separated and the value contains a separator character, you need to single quote the value in order to prevent the embedded separator from being mis-interpreted.

As I understand you wrote about bamboo cli from Bob-Swift toolset. 

Therefore I suggest you raise by link
