Bamboo agent urldecoder: illegal hex character

William McKeon April 24, 2023

Hi all,


I have the DC bamboo server and bamboo agent containers both at version 9.2.1-jdk11.  I'm using the helm chart to start both containers.  There are no errors in the bamboo-server's logs during startup or when the bamboo-agent tries to connect.  On the bamboo-agent's side I see the bamboo-agent successfully connect to the server, but then immediately throw a fatal error exception: FATAL [WrapperSimpleAppMain] [RemoteAgentBootstrap] Exiting due to fatal exception. java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: URLDecoder: Illegal hex characters in escape (%) pattern - Error at index 0 in: ";""


I feel that I'm missing some configuration somewhere, but I've been through both the values file and the installation guides and haven't seen where I am missing the setting.  Any help would be appreciated.

Hello @William McKeon

Kindly review your Agent's <bamboo-agent-home>/conf/wrapper.conf settings, as they may contain broken quotes or unescaped characters that interfere with its ability to connect to the Bamboo server.

Those properties will be declared under entries.

@Eduardo Alvarenga I checked the wrapper.conf and I didn't see any broken quotes or unescaped characters.  Everything looked appropriate.
