How to include Bamboo build log as artifact

I'm trying to share some information output to stdout (and then recorded in the build log) by one of my tasks for use in a deployment.  I feel like artifact sharing would be ideal for this, but I'm having difficulty finding the directory or pattern necessary to grab the build log.  From some cursory research it looks like it should be in "build_logs" directory and a pattern "*.log" should grab it, but no luck.  Any thoughts?  Has anyone had success including the build log as an artifact?

Hi There,

This is definitely possible, but it will require a little work on your part.

Pipe the output of your script(s) to 'tee' so you also can write a copy of the output to some file and then add that file as an artifact.

Note you may need to combine stderr and stdin using '|&' or write them to separate files depending on your needs. 

Good luck


That requires you to convert every single task you have to a script task.

Luckily I only have a few tasks, beyond checking out the repository, and the one I need information from is already an inline script. I was able to quickly test this by simplifying my script to just a quick echo. """ echo 'TEST OUTPUT' | tee log.log """ and was able to get this saved as artifact. Thanks @Alex Soto !

It's not possible to grab the build log as an artifact.

Well, that is legitimately disappointing. Thanks for the answer, though!

It definitely possible, see answer below. Just not as a direct point and click 'feature'

Did you try */.log?
