Bamboo Specs - Permissions issue creating a deployment plan

Pablo Rodriguez May 18, 2022


I'm trying to create a deployment plan by command line from mi bamboo specs in java. When I'm trying to create it I get a permission error saying that I don't have permission to create the deployment plan. If I try to create the deployment plan manually through the browser I can do it without problems using the same user.

As info, my user has admin permissions, and the token created to use in the bamboo spec was created with the option to have the same privileges as the user.  I also performed tests using the .credentials file with my username and password obtaining the same error (example in the github link below)

The error is the following:

"Execution default-cli of goal com.atlassian.bamboo:bamboo-specs-runner:8.0.5:run failed: java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException: An error occurred while publishing deployment CAP-NEWBETEST: You don''t have CREATE permission to import deployment project. -> [Help 1]"



Is there any way to be able to create the deployment plan directly from bamboo specs?

The bamboo version I'm using is: 8.0.5 build 80013

Source Code of the error:

thank you

Please make sure that the Personal Access Token that you're using had the "Same as user" tick when you created it.

Hi @Ronald Bolante ,

The token I'm using already has this option. I can create a building plan without problems, the only problem is with the deployment plan that returns the error that I don't have permissions.

I've seen answers from 2018 saying that it was not possible to create a deployment plan directly from the command line without having created the empty plan first by browser manually. But I believe that in these 4 years with the change of versions of Bamboo maybe that changed.


thank you
