Does Bamboo works with TFS-GIT?


I have a problem with TFS-Git repository. I was trying to select GIT or TFS repository type, but in both cases I have a problem with checking out  the source code.

Error response for GIT:(com.atlassian.bamboo.repository.RepositoryException : java.lang.RuntimeException: com.atlassian.bamboo.repository.RepositoryException: url : authentication not supported)

Error response for TFS:
(com.atlassian.bamboo.repository.RepositoryException : java.lang.RuntimeException: com.atlassian.bamboo.repository.RepositoryException: The SOAP endpoint could not be contacted. HTTP status: 404 


(java.lang.RuntimeException : com.atlassian.bamboo.repository.RepositoryException: com.atlassian.bamboo.repository.RepositoryException: There is no history for the path .... Probably it doesn't exist.

Hi Krzysztof,

Bamboo does not natively support TFS repositories. That support can be found via this third party add-on:

This add-on is fully supported by atlassian as well. If you are still running into issues using the TFS repo type provided by the add-on please create a ticket at 




The problem is that Bamboo does not support NTLM authentication with JGit (which should work).

Hi Krzysztof,

In your case you need to use GIT repository in Bamboo as well. The repos should match:

  • TFS repo in TFS -> TFS repo in Bamboo
  • GIT repo in TFS -> GIT repo in Bamboo

A sample url for GIT repo in TFS: https://myserver/tfs/defaultcollection/_git/myproject

More about configuring GIT repo in Bamboo:

Note: If you have authentication errors configure Bamboo to use native GIT.
