Linking multiple repositories to a YAML spec repository

We have a single YAML specs repository that has various tools and scripts in it for conducting our tests, but not the code we're testing. We keep our code in many other repositories, and we're hoping to use the specs repository as the one stop shop for those repositories to test with.

I can't find a way to link multiple repositories to this in YAML or in the configuration, only the repository that actually has the specs. Is it possible?

Hi @Joseph Clements

YAML specs was designed for less complex builds and therefore lacks in features if compared with JAVA Specs. Recently we had a lot of improvements in YAML specs due to a number of feature requests we received.

At the moment you cannot have other repositories configured/linked to YAML specs. Of course, you can use a script task to checkout your code, but that will not be the same scenario you have when Bamboo does that for you.

There is a JAC ticket requesting this feature to be part of YAML specs:

To solve this problem now, I would recommend you migrating your YAML configuration to JAVA specs.

In case you are not familiar with JAVA specs, the main configuration is already available for you through  Actions >> View plan as Java Specs :
