Bamboo build error. Unable to publish artifact, the source directory does not exist.

I am trying to clean re-install bamboo into the Ubuntu server. However this time my build is failing and these are the logs:

04-Jan-2018 18:39:37 Finished task 'zip the source files' with result: Success
04-Jan-2018 18:39:37 Running post build plugin 'NCover Results Collector'

04-Jan-2018 18:39:37 The artifact hasn't been successfully published after 683.5 μs

 The log shows that the path for artifact is invalid but I can make sure that the path exist. Pelase see the screenshot:

I have now solved this issue.

 

The problem was in the artifact defination:

Wrong definition:

Name : build.zip

location : builds/build.zip

copy pattern : build.zip

 

Correct definition:

Name : build.zip

location : builds

copy pattern : build.zip

Hi Rabi,

Please check and make sure the user running Bamboo has access to the zip file in that directory.

Hi Edwin,

Thank you for your reply.

Please see the permissions for the build.zip artifact.

As the user and group is bamboo, wouldn't bamboo have access to the file?

Yes, bamboo should have access. Try adding a task to clean the working directory. 

So the same configuration is working on another server but not after you moved it?

Cleaned the working directory manually before running the plan. Still no luck.

 

I have done following:

Added a task to see who the user is, shows bamboo as expected.

Added a task to list files, the build.zip is there as expected.

Added a task to give permission 777 to build.zip.

Previously installed bamboo on the same server with  internal HSQL database but now decided to move to postgresql so re-installed the bamboo.

Used the same exact scripts and settings.

I had a tab character in the "location" field of the artifact definition ...

 

Thanks Atlassian for not trimming inputs
