How do I get the Bamboo script task to show verbose console ouput?

In the script body at the first line I specify

#!/bin/bash -x

Below that line are my script commands.

When I run the script view the log I'm not able to see any of the verbose script commands being run.

Hi David,

Thanks for your question!

I tested the code and Bamboo does show the verbose logs when using the -x flag:

build 05-Apr-2018 02:24:35 a
error 05-Apr-2018 02:24:35 + echo a
simple 05-Apr-2018 02:24:35 Finished task 'Script' with result: Success

My Code was:

#!/bin/bash -x
echo a


Can you check what interpreter is set to be used?

I am using Shell and Script location as Inline. My Bamboo version is 6.4.0

Just for records, one can parse the shebang and execute that interpretor inline directly only from Bamboo 6.4 onwards (via BAM-17864).

I have the same problem : no output for the script

I've tested with the code Robhit provided and using Shell ,Script location as Inline, Bamboo version 6.6.3.

Hey @Catalin

What do you see in your build log when the script task is executed?

Cheers, Jey
