Bamboo scp tasks wipes out file permissions & executable bit

I noticed when using the scp task in bamboo the file permissions are not being copied to the remote machine, it appears every file receives a 644 mode when copied by the scp task.

Even if a file is set 777 within the Bamboo server working directory, it will receive permissions 644 after being scp'ed to the remote machine. Is this normal behaivor? I don't see it on the SSH task documentation

Yes this is very normal. I had this problem every time I pushed new files.

One thing you can try to do is make the child directories inherit the permissions of parent directory. Same goes for the new files. In my case I wasn't the admin and couldn't do it at those directories. So I had to run an additional ssh task to change permission. 

I was worried this was the case. Currently testing with tarballing the release before scp'ing it over, so when it untars permissions are preserved
