Custom error message in a summary for a Bamboo build Edited

I'm looking to have a descriptive error message shown in a build summary in Bamboo, in case a build fails.

At the moment the failure happens in a bash script task, where I use exit code 1.

I've tried using the throw statement but the message still won't appear in the summary.

Currently, this is what appears: No failed tests found, a possible compilation error occurred.

Which is a result of me doing exit 1

Hi Nuno!

Writing to error output, the message appears in the "Error summary for Default Job" section.

Would you like to receive it in the email notification?

Hi Cristiano,


  Thanks for the help, that does indeed help a bit.

  It does show up in the error summary if I scroll down :)

  What I meant is if it was possible to show it here in the summary details?

Many thanks for the help

Hi Nuno! Glad to hear it helped!

Unfortunatly, I don't know how to show it in a higher position.



Hi Nuno! How are you doing?

You can write your message to the operating system error out.

In bash, you would do so:

>&2 echo "My error message"

Hope this helps!



Hi Cristiano,


Unfortunately that will only output the message in the log but not in the summary :(


Is there no way to achieve what I need?
