Do I need to install git on the Bamboo server if I'm using BitBucket server?

There have been changes (merges) from a branch into the develop branch, however, the build can not seem to follow this. An exception is thrown regarding a table constraint that tries to insert a commit as null.

Error stated in Bamboo plan:
Plan 'CI-xxx' could not be started. Exception: Could not execute JDBC batch update; SQL [insert into COMMIT_FILES (COMMIT_ID, COMMIT_FILE_NAME, COMMIT_FILE_REIVISION) values (?, ?, ?)]; constraint [null]; nested exception is org.hibernate.exception.ConstraintViolationException: Could not execute JDBC batch update

We are using Bamboo 5.12 on RHEL 5.x. We have an integration with BitBucket installed on a different server and wondering if the Bamboo server also needed a local copy of git installing.

That error doesn't say that you need to have GIT installed. Wondering what kind of integration you are having (App Links or else?) but in any way I think is should not be required unless your Bamboo server is used also as an local agent.

Hi Johnathan,

Bamboo does have a bundled Java-based version of git (called jgit), which is enough to get started, but we strongly recommend installing git proper separately.
