How to exclude directory in checkout - not just on update/change ?

Is it possible to configure Bamboo to exclude a directory on checkout of svn?

i.e. /path/to/trunk

The above path has a docs directory I don't want checked-out.

Not directly. Your best bet might be to move your docs directory to another part of the SVN tree and use the svn:externals proeprty to put it in your trunk. Then you can ignore svn:externals when checking out in bamboo and you won't get the docs directory

Alternatively you can use a sparse checkout option (but that will bring in your docs root folder) and then do selective updates on your other folders except for the docs folder. So anything under the immediate docs folder will be checked out but not any subfolders under docs.

I think an svn restructure sounds like a good plan.

How do you ignore externals in Bamboo?
It looks like https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/BAM-6339 is unresolved.
