Integrating bamboo with Git repository issue

Hello Everyone,

 

I am facing an issue while Test connecting to Git Repository from bamboo.

We couldn't connect to the repository. Here's what we got back:

Could not test connection using selected authentication method. Please save repository configuration first to upload the private key file.

 

Thanks,

Pradeep Y.

Ran into this issue as well. Didn't realize it was as easy as it was to fix. It's saying it can't TEST connection until you've saved the repo (dumb yes, but that's whats going on) 

You go to the bottom, click save then go into linked repos and then you can test and edit the repo. Not that intuitive but it works.

Looks like you are using SSH protocol. It so, you need to upload a valid private key as suggested in the error message. Go to the linked repository and edit it to make the changes!

Thanks Jobin.

 

I have already uploaded the private key. Even though it is throwing the error.

Same, through source tree with the same private key without any problems could checkout and push.

Hey,

I am facing "We couldn't connect to the repository. The details you provided were invalid." when I tried to connect the Test Connection.

I am facing similar type of issue using Bamboo-6.0.0, following are the few details of creating new repository:

Repository host : Git

Name : TESTREPO1

Repository URL : git://<Host Name for on-premises Git Server>:<Port no for on- premises Git Server>/<Git Project path>

Authentication type  : SSH private key

             Choose "Use shared credentials"

Shared credentials  : <Shared Credential what already created>

Branch : master

Now while click on "Test connection" button getting bellow error:

fatal: protocol error: bad line length character: HTTP

Kindly let me know how to resolve this issue....

Thanks in advance.

Select the username and password authentication type works for me
