Newly created Task Type not displayed Edited

Seetharam I'm New Here Sep 15, 2020

Hi All,

I am creating a plugin to create new task type. This is just a basic task which logs Hello World in the Build Logger. I have created the class by implementing the TaskType interface and added the necessary <tastype> tags in atlassian-plugins. xml as well. But i cant see my newly created task in Bamboo. 


atlassian-plugin.xml : 


<atlassian-plugin key="${atlassian.plugin.key}" name="${}" plugins-version="2">
<vendor name="${}" url="${project.organization.url}" />
<param name="plugin-icon">images/pluginIcon.png</param>
<param name="plugin-logo">images/pluginLogo.png</param>

<!-- add our i18n resource -->
<resource type="i18n" name="i18n" location="secondPlugin"/>

<!-- add our web resources -->
<web-resource key="secondPlugin-resources" name="secondPlugin Web Resources">

<resource type="download" name="secondPlugin.css" location="/css/secondPlugin.css"/>
<resource type="download" name="secondPlugin.js" location="/js/secondPlugin.js"/>
<resource type="download" name="images/" location="/images"/>


<taskType key="task.newTask" name="My First New Task" class="com.atlassian.tutorial.secondPlugin.MyFirstTask">
<description>A task that prints 'Hello, World!'</description>



package com.atlassian.tutorial.secondPlugin;

import com.atlassian.bamboo.task.TaskContext;
import com.atlassian.bamboo.task.TaskException;
import com.atlassian.bamboo.task.TaskResult;
import com.atlassian.bamboo.task.TaskResultBuilder;
import com.atlassian.bamboo.task.TaskType;

public class MyFirstTask implements TaskType
    public TaskResult execute(final TaskContext taskContext) throws TaskException
        final BuildLogger buildLogger = taskContext.getBuildLogger();

        buildLogger.addBuildLogEntry("Hello, World!");

        return TaskResultBuilder.newBuilder(taskContext).success().build();

Hi Seetharam,


You might have more luck finding help in:

Atlassian Developer Community - Bamboo 


Your plugin looks more or less correct to me, so might be worth investigating if your plugin is enabled correctly in Manage Apps?
