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. 

Hi Logan,
