Bamboo Docker Push fails


Hi guys,

I am doing a docker push build step and I get the following error:
error 04-Aug-2017 14:49:37 Caused by: com.atlassian.utils.process.ProcessException: Error executing '/usr/bin/docker login -u vlad -p ***** -e', exit code: 125

The docker login command doesn' t have a -e option and that generates the issue.

Do you have any suggestions?
Is this a bug ?

The -e and --email flags flags have been removed from Docker engine as of release 17.06, so presumably the Docker CLI on your agents is a more recent version.

I don't know off hand how the Bamboo Docker task handles this, but given that all fields are optional because you can "Leave these credentials empty to use the agent's ~/.dockercfg credentials" (which would also be a workaround accordingly), it might just do the right thing and skip the -e flag when you don't specify an email address.

Hi Steffen,

Thanks for your reply.
Could you give me the exact path to the dockercfg file ?
It's now clear what is the agent's home dir. I have only one agent so the path would be bamboo-home/atlassian-bamboo-6.1.0/.dockercfg ?

Hi Vlad we are facing same issue. Were you able to use a workaround.

Great solution here, sadly Email is not optional for all Docker plugin version. I'm currently dealing with this in Bambo 6.1.

Hi Alexey,

Thanks for your reply we will se if we still need this functionality.

Hello @Vlad Budica,

It's known issue which is fixed in Bamboo 6.2.0 planned for release end of September.

You can try updated version of docker plugin from for older versions of Bamboo, but we not guarantee it is 100% compatible
