Bamboo and perforce integration isssue


Hi There,

I am trying to add perforce repository for bamboo. But not able to make it. Getting following error while adding repository-

I have downloaded latest bamboo 30days trial and installed on my local machine. Bamboo is installed correctly as I am able to create automated build using MSBuild with BitBucket repository.

My bamboo instance is running on http://localhost:8085.

I have Downloaded and installed latest P4D and P4V from and installed in the same machine. Perforce server and client are correctly configured as I am able to checkin source code to server using client. Running on  port 1666. By client and server are both installed in C:\Program Files\Perforce.


I have added bamboo Server Capabilities for perforce.


On providing perforce detail while adding repository, getting following three alerts from p4v client-

Screenshot_3.jpgUser id and password are correct also url with port is correct. I am able to get data from repository with this detail.

p4v.exe is already there in my PATH and also I run p4v -help on command prompt, getting following result. I dont see any option named 'info'.

P4V is a visual client. Bamboo need command line client

Bamboo Server capabilities have to be updated with this p4 command line client too.

Thank you for your response. 

I have changed server capabilities to p4.exe. Now I dont see any error popup. But getting following message for Depot view-

"Depot view is not in the format //client_name/... or //client_name/workspace_mapping/..."

If I run p4 info, getting the following-

C:\Windows\System32>p4 info

Client host: QS-0049

From the screen shot of the task, if the Client (workspace) "BambooTest" is used, the Depot view need to be in the format "//BambooTest/JsonToClassGenerator/..."


I have tried that to. Got the issue now. I was missing trailing three dots. Can it be specified on the documentation that trailing three dots are mendatory(/...). Its not that clear in the documentation.
