How to change the export directory path

Bamboo 5.8.1

Windows Server 2008


I've followed the instructions here:

and here:

ran setenv.bat with this argument:

set JVM_SUPPORT_RECOMMENDED_ARGS="-Dbamboo.paths.set.allowed=true"

and then restarted bamboo but I still can't change the export directory path.

Does anyone know why that might be?

It works for me.

To check if your setting made it into Bamboo, go to Administration - System information, and look at the JAVA_OPTS setting.
The "-Dbamboo.paths.set.allowed=true" should be part of it.
If it isn't, your change just didn't make it into Bamboo.

Note that the change in setenv.bat is only useful if you start Bamboo from the commandline with start-bamboo.bat.

If you start Bamboo as a Windows Service, the change in setenv.bat has no effect.
You'll need to follow the instructions shown in


Thanks for the reply! I managed to work around it in the end but I will try that out when I get a chance
