Bamboo jobs in Docker

Jonas Lindau October 21, 2019


I'm struggeling to get Bamboo work with Docker. I've followed the guide "Getting started with Docker and Bamboo" and "Run Bamboo jobs in Docker".

Want i've done is that i have selected "Run this job  in Docker container", as Docker image i entered golang:latest. The only task i have is source code checkout. This works fine. I can verify that the images are downloaded in Docker.

But, the problems start when i try to add a script task. As soon as i do, the job fails. No matter what i enter in the script it always fails with:

/var/folders/37/r_d7kk1n3pv22f0sg1n2_m4c0000gn/T/ line 2: docker: command not found
/var/folders/37/r_d7kk1n3pv22f0sg1n2_m4c0000gn/T/ line 4: docker: command not found
/var/folders/37/r_d7kk1n3pv22f0sg1n2_m4c0000gn/T/ line 5: docker: command not found
/var/folders/37/r_d7kk1n3pv22f0sg1n2_m4c0000gn/T/ line 6: docker: command not found

I'm not sure in which context the scrupt runs, but i imagine it's in the container? So i should be able to enter something like: /usr/local/go/bin/go version to print the version? Or is it in the context of the build server?

Anyway, no matter what i enter in the script body it always fails. What am i doing wrong here? All built-in tasks seems to work, i can check out source or clean the build directory.

I would really appreciate any input...

I turned out i did it right all the time. BUT: for some reason the BrowserStack add-on seems to mess things up for Docker. Once i uninstalled that add-on, it worked as expected.

Hi @Jonas Lindau ,

The error is referring to a docker command being run. Running the same threw the same error for me.

Please remove any docker commands from your script.

Add the following to your script task and it should run

go version

That is strange, because the only line i have in my script task is:

go version

There is no docker command at all as you can see in this screen shot:



But the job still fails with this error:


All Docker related task earlier in the plan works just fine.

Still no luck for me...
