Clover is open source yet license required for bamboo

When enabling Clover in Bamboo you are required to enter a license. But there is no way to get a license now that its open source.

What's the solution? (I'm running bamboo v6.2.5)

Hi @Doron Horwitz

Thanks for reaching out to us!

From the Screenshot, it looks like you've selected "Automatically integrate Clover into this build." in the Miscellaneous tab of the Job configuration. The text box there is available for users who purchased Clover licenses before it became open source, as their licenses are still valid.

The other option in the Miscellaneous job config is "Clover is already integrated into this build and a clover.xml file will be produced." With this option selected, please add Clover into your pom.xml for Maven to read (Clover-for-Maven: Basic usage), or build.xml for Ant (Clover-for-Ant: Quickstart guide) – the license portions no longer apply.

For Maven, you can add the following Goals to your command (or Maven task):


For Ant, you can use the following arguments when calling Ant – and/or in your Ant task:



I hope this helps. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any further questions!

Thanks @Elias Zeidan, very helpful.

The warning message need to be updated then, explaining what you've just explained to me.

Is there any ticket open to fix that message?
