Bamboo agent urldecoder: illegal hex character

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.

Best regards,

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