Bamboo Script or Post Build Action?


I am trying to integrate one of my build progresses into bamboo. But since the build needs some steps after a normal "mvn package" I wanted to add a script.

On my working environment I am running windows, so I simply wrote a little batch script, which compiled some class files, moved them to another bundle and finally zipped all up to a jar.

And exactly this progress needs to be represented within a bamboo build task.

Is there a possibility to add batch scripts to a bamboo (running on a linux machine) task?

What about the builder named "script"? What kind of script does it expect?

kind regards,

Assuming you're using Bamboo >=3.1: If you add a Script Task to your build, it will launch your script as a batch script on Windows and a shell script on Linux.

Hey unfortunately my company is still using version 2.0 build 801.

What is bamboo's default behavior about scripts in this version?

With 2.0, you can try installing a very old version of this plugin: . Another solution would be to use the Script Builder to run the whole build, but that will amke Bamboo unaware of the fact that this is a Maven build - it should work though.

And for new Bamboo releases you can also use groovy scripts: Bamboo Groovy Task Plugin
