How can I tell if a Bamboo export is still running?

I am running Bamboo behind Apache.  I kicked off an export, but I think my proxy has timed out (getting 502 on the /admin/export page) before the export has completed.  Is there anything I can look at to see if the export is still running?  I am running bamboo on RHEL linux.

Hello Jason,

You could do the following:

  1. run the following REST API call

    curl -k -u BAMBOO_ADMIN -p -H "Content-type: application/json" -X GET BAMBOO_BASE_URL/rest/api/latest/info

    As a response, you would get:

  2. look for the following entries on Bamboo logs:

    201X-XX-XX 13:23:31,235 INFO [http-bio-8085-exec-11] [XmlMigrator] Finished updating zip
    201X-XX-XX 13:23:31,235 INFO [http-bio-8085-exec-11] [XmlMigrator] Ensuring the the file has been unmounted
    201X-XX-XX 13:23:31,237 INFO [http-bio-8085-exec-11] [XmlMigrator] Unmounted <bamboo-home>/exports/
    201X-05-20 13:23:31,237 INFO [http-bio-8085-exec-11] [XmlMigrator] Export completed. 0:00:31.788

Kind regards,


I see this quite often but i allow the traffic to pass without rewrites on the high portnumbers which were never used by our organization anyway. This has been a blessing while doing POC of Atlassians other tools, as it allowed me to quickly link applications that not yet had shared SSL certs in each others keystores, without the imports and restart of the whole application stack. This means that if i know i am about to do a reindex/backup/restore i connect to http://bamboo:8085 rather than https://bamboo

The correct workaround would be to increase the session timeout on the apache, but if any of the applicationservers behind the proxy goes down, it might build up connections that zombies, ultimately reaching the apaches max connections, and killing the service.
