Including multiple expressions with the Artifact copy pattern


I am trying to copy multiple extensions in a artifact definition. It says to 'Specify the name (or Ant file copy pattern) of the artifact(s) you want to keep. e.g. **/*.*' but the link to the ant file copy pattern seems vauge as what I want to achieve only gives XML examples.

Say i wanted to copy all the dll, wixlib and sql files from a directory but not the x00mb test files how would I go about it?

I tried things like: **/*.dll,**/*.wixlib,**/*.sql

But the log just shows: Unable to publish artifact [xx]: unable to find files matching [**/*.dll,**/*.wixlib,**/*.sql] in directory C:\p4depot\xx\Output

So i cant but help to think my syntax is wrong. I'd really rather not have to modify files in that directory prior to the artifact gathering step.

Hoping this is a simple one.

At present, Bamboo does not support multiple copy patterns per artifact. You have to either sepcify multiple artifgacts or copy your files into a separate directory specifially for artifact publishing step. You can do it by writing a script task.

I see, Thanks.

Has this changed in newer versions of Bamboo (5.4)?

This, and also the capability to selectively download files from an artifact.

Hi folks

I'm agree with Alex. We need evolution about artifact functions.

Thanks by advance.


Agree. This needs a solution.

+1 Multiple ant patterns per artifact definition would be quite useful.

and support for exclude pattern.  +1


I even tend to give +6 as this issue is now open for 6 years :-(


4 votes in 2017 alone. Probably time to implements. 6.01 release?

+1 -> yeay first in 2018

+1 (and more options, like exclude)

May be it will be more correct if we vote here:

Thanks for the link.

It's interesting how that Bamboo issue predates this question. Why couldn't the Atlassian representative have linked this Bamboo issue. In saying that their response was so rushed as to have three spelling mistakes (specify*, artifacts*, specifically*) in a total of 40 words. It says a lot about how Atlassian deals with customer complaints and questions.
