Branch plans on remote agents


When Bamboo does a branch build of a project with submodules, it does some sort of merging on the bamboo server (which doesn't have ssh keys setup) and not on the build agent (you can tell by the file path in the error message):

Merge command error: com.atlassian.bamboo.repository.RepositoryException: RES-SESR2-1: Checkout to revision 21e93ae15004006958baf84e4daa43c27434c191 has failed.command ['C:\Program Files\Git\cmd\git.exe' submodule update --init --recursive] failed with code 1.

Branch builds without submodules, however, execute entirely on the build agent according to the logs.

How can i get branch builds with submodules to execute only on the build agent?

Hi @Ari_Mahpour,

Bamboo will not mange the remote agent submodule SSH keys for you, unfortunately. There is an improvement request for this: [BAM-11369] If I want to use git submodules then I shouldn't have to upload and configure SSH keys on each Bamboo Agent.

You will need to manually  manage the SSH keys for each of your repository submodules.
