How can I export all bamboo plan's java specs in bulk or via API so I can search through Tasks?

So yes, the general problem I am trying to solve is to be able to 'search' through Tasks (the name AND the content of, for example, Script tasks (but any type really..) for keywords. The Bamboo REST API does not seem to have any resources for getting at Tasks. I can search on stages and that gets me part of what I want, for example:


However I need to find out information on Tasks: which Tasks are named with or has script code containing keywords. 

If not via the REST API, is there something with Tasks API or Java API? Or even a SQL select query against the DB?

You can export the build plans project by project using the following GET api call:{projectKey}/specs

Bamboo API Documentation - get project Specs

Once you have exported the specs from a project, you can then search through the code for a particular type of task, or keyword.

An example Script Task:

new ScriptTask()
.description("Upload to S3")
.inlineBody("#!/bin/bash\nexport AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID=${bamboo.awsAccessKeyId}\nexport AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY=${bamboo.awsSecretAccessKeyPassword}\nexport AWS_DEFAULT_REGION=us-east-1\n\n# aws s3 rm s3://<bucket-name>/path/to/file.ext\n/usr/local/bin/aws s3 cp file.ext s3://<bucket-name>/path/to/file.ext --acl public-read\n\necho \"uploaded to<bucket-name>/path/to/file.ext\""),
