Hello @Swatilekha Paul

You will need to use Linux tools available in the machine running the Bamboo remote agent to mount the remote folders. You can use a Bamboo script task to run the needed commands.


  1. Check the best options you have (SMB, Cifs, NFS, etc) for the Linux flavor you are using.
    e.g. How to access windows file server from linux (Cfis)
  2. Run some mounting tests on a terminal to make sure it is working as you expect.
  3. Create a script task and add the commands you tested.
    If you need the absolute path of the working directory folder you can use:
  4. Copy the files you need.

I hope that is what you need.
