Bamboo: artifact naming convention limitation

When defining artifacts, where the name containing '.' and '?', it appears that Bamboo can not find the store the artifact itself.


When creating an artifact with the name "Tests-FW6.??-s2l-release.log" (without quotes) the job fails to archive the artifacts that are actually defined (*.log or something similar).

Is this a bug or a feature?

@Tim Crall was right in his comment from June 01, you should not use special characters at artifact definition name. Created an issue to provide more useful error message

Thanks for checking out, and voted! wink

Hello @Mark de Bont,

Tried to reproduce your issue at Bamboo 5.12.1

Created plan with script task:

echo "hello world" > Tests-FW6.00-s2l-release.log
echo "hello world" > Tests-FW6.01-s2l-release.log
echo "hello world" > Tests-FW6.100-s2l-release.log

Defined artifacts:

Execute build and received 2 files in artifact

Does it looks different from your configuration?

Hi @Alexey Chystoprudov [Atlassian]

I'am using something similar

and then get the following result:

d:\gitb\l\26017793\SAN-PAT-JOB1>echo "hello world"  1>Tests-FW6.00-s2l-release.log

d:\gitb\l\26017793\SAN-PAT-JOB1>echo "hello world"  1>Tests-FW6.01-s2l-release.log

d:\gitb\l\26017793\SAN-PAT-JOB1>echo "hello world"  1>Tests-FW6.100-s2l-release.log

Unable to publish artifact [Tests-FW6.??-s2l-release.log]:


using Bamboo 5.12.1

I'd recommend not using a question mark in the artifact name.  That seems like bad practice in any event.

it's pattern to copy artifacts, not part of file name
