I have a script task which runs successfully but Bamboo regards it as a failure. I can't find any documentation saying how Bamboo decides whether it is a success or failure. I'm pretty sure the exit code is 0.
here's some suggestion in some places that Bamboo will look for certain words in the logs or maybe at the end of the logs but nothing mentioned matches my situation.
Is there a clear answer anywhere saying exactly how Bamboo determines if a task was successful? Or is there any way to find out why Bamboo deemed a particular task to be a failure?
Thanks for your question!
Bamboo indeed depends on the exit status code return by the script execution. You can find this code in the bamboo build logs. Look for the task which contains the script task when it gets completed. The exit code is thrown in the log message.
Here are few short build log snippets:
simple 16-Feb-2018 09:27:26 Starting task 'Script' of type 'com.atlassian.bamboo.plugins.scripttask:task.builder.script'
simple 16-Feb-2018 09:27:26 Finished task 'Script' with result: Success
simple 22-Feb-2018 08:19:49 Starting task 'Script' of type 'com.atlassian.bamboo.plugins.scripttask:task.builder.script'
simple 22-Feb-2018 08:19:49 Failing task since return code of [/Users/robhit_saxena/Atlassian/Bamboo-Instances/Bamboo-Instances-Homes/BAM-6.2.3/temp/PR22J-PLSC-RUN-6-ScriptBuildTask-1007111759114555860.sh] was 255 while expected 0 simple 22-Feb-2018 08:19:49 Finished task 'Script' with result: Failed
Hope this will help.
