Bamboo git lfs checkouts fail

When I try to checkout from my repo using a "Source Code Checkout" task, I get an error. The created command is "/bin/git lfs fetch ssh://some-uuid@ refs/heads/master". The output of that command ist "stderr:Invalid remote name "ssh://some-uuid@".

That seems to be a misbuilt command. The Bamboo version is 6.0.3 build 60004. The Linked Repository is configured with "Use shallow clones", "Verbose logs" and "Enable LFS support". I also have "filter.lfs.required = true" in the config of the apache user, but "git config --get filter.lfs.required" has return code 1. Is there something I can do?

Hi Stefan,

I believe Git LFS is installed on both Server and on the agent side. Can you check if the Git checkout command with the same local account works outside?

I ask this because there was a bug (BAM-18339) in Bamboo 5.15.x where GIT LFS doesn't work correctly if 'Fetch whole repository' option is set in the linked repository.

As a workaround, you will have to disable 'fetch whole repository' option.

Hi Jeyanthan,

thank you very much. "Fetch whole repository" wasn't enabled anyway. But I've found the reason now. The version of git-lfs was a 1.x which does not support URLs as remote. Details are described here. I'm on a 2.4.0 now and it works perfectly.

Best regards
