Is there a way to check out a specific branch in "Source Code Checkout" of deployment tasks?

Hello,

I am doing deployments using Ansible tasks, which are called in a deployment task on Bamboo as a script. Before this, the Ansible repository needs to be checked out. I'm doing this using a "Source Code Checkout" task to bring it to the current directory. It seems that it only checks out the master branch. I have a deployment plan that needs to use a different branch of this repository. Is there any way to do this?

Hello @Jake Huneau welcome to the Community 🎉

What you are missing is the branch option on the repository side. When you are configuring the "Source Code Checkout" you are able to select a repository, so what you need to do is to create a new repository that is configured to the correct branch.

Did it help? :)

Hi @Victor Debone

I actually went a different route. I added script tasks to have it do `git checkout <branch>` and that seems to work.

Thank you though!

That's what we did, too.  Just make sure that your "linked repo" configuration has the "Fetch whole repository" option checked in the Advanced tab.  We had issues until we realized that part wasn't checked.

It'd be nice if Bamboo offered a "override default branch" option in the "Source Code Checkout" field in Deployments.  Until then, `git checkout <branch>` is the way to do it, as far as we've been able to tell.
