Configure proxy for Git operations in Bamboo?

Charlie Misonne Community Champion Jul 04, 2016

My setenv.sh file contains some proxy settings:

JVM_REQUIRED_ARGS="--Dhttp.proxyHost=proxy.host.com -Dhttp.proxyPort=8080 -Dhttps.proxyHost=proxy.host.com -Dhttps.proxyPort=8080 -Dhttp.nonProxyHosts='localhost|127.*|[::1]|*.host.com ' -DcvsClientLog=system"

 

Normally we use an internal Stash as VCS. For one project we need a bitbucket.org cloud hosted git repo.

I successfully added this one as a linked repository. Bamboo lists the available branches...

However when I set up a polling build trigger using the bitbucket.org repo I get: unable to detect changes, unknown host bitbucket.org

Should I set the HTTP_PTOXY and HTTPS_PROXY environment variables somewhere in the startup script? Or what is the best way to approach this issue

Bamboo: 5.9.10 on RedHat

Hi Charlie,

If you're using proper git (rather than jgit), then the git process runs outside the JVM, therefore the Java properties you have defined in setenv.sh will be ignored. Setting a proxy server for git requires you to run git config, see this thread on StackOverflow.

yes we are using regular git.

Are the environment variables no alternative to git config?

On the linux system we have the environment variables. When I start Bamboo as non-service I don't get the unknown host error. That's why I think adding them to the service script should solve the problem

Hi Charlie,

Actually, you're right, I just checked the documentation for git and it appears the the HTTP_PROXY and HTTPS_PROXY environment variables take precedence if they're set.

Edit:

That means that if the variables aren't set globally in /etc/environment, you can set them in <BambooInstallationDir>/bin/setenv.sh.
