Is there a faster way to get a bare GIT repository onto your Bamboo agents?
Our archive 5+GB and takes more then half an hour to clone over to the agent. I've enabled repository caching and am using shallow clones on the agent but occasionally it starts (re)cloning the complete archive .
This takes more then half an hour and then the jobs times out.
I was thinking of creating a temporary copy on a file share to have some sort of baseline to start from.
which VCS are you using? If it is Git, is option "Use shallow clones" enabled for the repository? It causes Bamboo and agents to only checkout most-recent commits, skipping as much history as possible. The option is available for multiple Git-related repository types in Bamboo, including Git, Bitbucket Server and Bitbucket Cloud. See https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/BAMBOO/Git for more details.
