Bamboo cannot find my tests

The hierarchy of my project test files is: app/test/services/<some sub_dir>/blahblah.test.js

And I get the following error: 

Error: Cannot find module '/mnt/data/bamboo-home/xml-data/build-dir/ESR-WRITETEST1-JOB1/app/test/services'

Nevertheless, when I SSH into the Bamboo app on the hosting service, I can see that the files do exist in the build dirs. And furthermore, why does it say cannot find MODULE

The task in which this fails is a Mocha Test Runner task. The configuration is the following:

When I execute the tests locally, I run the following command: 

"NODE_ENV=test mocha --recursive test/* test/**/*"

Hey Galin,

I believe I had a similar issue with getting some tests to run with Node + Mocha.

Are the tests that you are trying to run within the same Job as the Job that installs the node modules?

I was trying to separate my node setup(npm install) and the actual running of tests into two Jobs, which resulted in the node modules living in one build_dir and when the testing job was being ran, it was trying to do so within a different build_dir. Because the two jobs operated on two different build_dir's, when it came to running the tests, Bamboo could not find the appropriate modules.


My solution was to remove the second Job and put everything(separated by tasks) into one Job.
