Bamboo git checkout works too long

have some trouble with git checkout tools in Bamboo. It works too long. For example I have two repos. I can clone them to local machine in 5-10 minutes. But checkout task stucks at

Fetching 'refs/heads/release-1.69' from 'ssh://git@ [path/to/first/repo] .git'.

Git: remote: Counting objects

Git: remote: Compressing objects (120)

Git: Receiving objects (269)

Git: Resolving deltas (83)

Git: Updating references (1)

Git: Total 269 (delta 83), reused 128 (delta 31)

Checking out revision 7c11b20b2495be8bb8091839794c4e80bdc7651e.

Creating local git repository in 'path'

Sometimes this task take 150 minutes, sometimes it even has no end.

Another trouble that stopping plan with that task not stopping the agent. The only way to reanimate agent is restart it.

Is it something wrong with agent? Or I make mistake with configuring repos?

We are seeing this issue as well we are using ondemand with elastic agents. When we run the command from gitbash it only takes 3 mins but from bamboo it takse about 25 -35 mins, almost ten times longer.

Hi Wayne, I am having the same issue with Source code check out. It takes almost 2 hours to checkout the code.  


I am running on Windows boxes.. I read in other articles that we can first add script that runs checkout... 


Could you please let me know how to do that... 


I selected "Script" task and inline added commands

git clean -f -d

git checkout <branch-name>


It did nt work


I have experienced the same behavior when using a BitBucket repository. The best fix that I have been able to come up with is to regular update the AWS image that is used by Bamboo to perform the build to have a fairly recent version of the repo. This is especially important if large files have changed or been added to the repo.

I can verify this issue on my Bamboo-installation when trying to clone a repository that resides on BitBucket.

I'm having the same issue, but only on my "develop" branch. My "master" and all feature branches build correctly, but for some reason, my "develop" branch sits at "Checking out revision" and hangs. I even let it run overnight once. No change.

Hi, I also face the same issue. Some times it hangs even for hours fetching the repo in the elastic instances. I read somewhere else that it seems that the git version that comes by default in the elastic instances is buggy and should use the official git. Any idea how that can be done?

Thank you.

Hi All,

I am also facing the same problem when we do "Force clean build".  Did anybody got it resolved ..?

Weird - we are using standard git command for the checkout. We also use Git internally a lot

Are you guys all using Bamboo OD/elastic agents or is it unrelated?
