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


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!
