Branch Updater: Filename too long error

I tried turning on "Branch Updater" to automatically merge in changes from the mainline into my feature branches on the Bamboo server (https://confluence.atlassian.com/bamboo0515/using-plan-branches-894237157.html#Usingplanbranches-Usingautomaticmerging).

However when I do this, I get a "filename too long" error.  I have seen posts about a configuration option that can overcome this windows limitation but not sure where I need to edit the configuration on my Bamboo build server?

Thanks.

Hi Salmaan,

If you're on Windows there is an article you can use titled Git checkouts fail on Windows with "Filename too long error: unable to create file" errors. 

To resolve this issue, please run the following command from GitBash or the Git CMD prompt:

git config --system core.longpaths true

This will allow file paths of 4096 characters.

Cheers,

Branden

I would suggest to try "Long Path Tool" program.
