CP Command always return "permission denied"

Hi,

i run bamboo on my server besides tomcat and i want to make a copy command from "script" task of bamboo to the tcat webapps folder.

If i run (inline script):

cp /var/atlassian/../TestApp.war /opt/tomcat/webapps

cp: cannot stat '/opt/tomcat/webapps/TestApp.war': Permission denied

 

If i run the shell:

su - bamboo
cp /var/atlassian/../TestApp.war /opt/tomcat/webapps

=> everthing is fine

 

background:

  • Also tried with file script => same result
  • bamboo is owner of the tomcat folder (&webapps)
  • bamboo is owner of his home dir and the build dir

 

I am at a loss. The entire configuration was a homerun. A line script stops everything.

Thank you in advance! Cheers for Atlassian and their incredible products!

Silly question, but does bamboo actually run as the bamboo user? 

Does the file TestApp.war already exist?

hi,

1. yes. maybe there is a way to determine this?

2. yes, but tested without (after removing)

thanks lars!

ps aux | grep bamboo should list bamboo as the running user (first thing on the line)

Try  cp -f /var/atlassian/../TestApp.war /opt/tomcat/webapps to overwrite the file. (I think this is what causes the error)

Oh no. -force does the trick. sorry and thanks!

 

While i was investigating the console says "whoami" "bamboo" inside inline script.

 

Thanks a lot lars!

No worries Marc! That`s why we are here.

Please mark the answer as solved
