Problem downloading artifacts using REST API

I am using the REST API to attempt to download pipeline artifacts.

I am successfully able to list the artifacts in a build using curl and an API token:

curl -X GET -H "Authorization: Bearer <api_token>" https://<bamboo_url>/rest/api/latest/result/TASP-TASFLATLAND-114?expand=artifacts

From the response, I am able to extract the url link of the artifact: for example (notice the url is a redirect):


 However, when I attempt to access the url I get redirected to an "authentication page" (okta).  It does not seem to matter if I use the Bearer API token or normal username/password in curl (i.e., the -u option).

Any clues on what is going on?   How can I avoid the redirect link to redirect me to the authentication page and instead provide the artifact in the request?

Hi @Juan Carlos Santamaria ,

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Could you please tell us which Bamboo version you have? Because I have tried with the latest Bamboo version 9.5.0 with SSO enabled and I get the direct artifact links in the API output like below:

<artifact><name>hi_re</name><link href="https://<bamboo-url>/browse/PROJ-TEST-9/artifact/shared/hi_re/" rel="self"/><producerJobKey>PROJ-TEST-JOB1-9</producerJobKey><shared>true</shared><size>9</size><prettySizeDescription>9 bytes</prettySizeDescription><id>2949121</id></artifact><artifact>

And I was able to download the artifact using this URL "https://<bamboo-url>/browse/PROJ-TEST-9/artifact/shared/hi_re/"

Could you please provide the screenshot of Bamboo overview > Authentication methods?

Alternate Option to get artifact URL and download artifacts:

You can use this rest API endpoint: /rest/api/latest/planDirectoryInfo/PROJ-PLAN to get the artifact directory paths stored on Bamboo server.

Refer to this documentation: plan-directory-information-rest-api 

Then, add the path to the artifact to below API endpoint to download the artifacts:



Best Regards,

Hi Jyothi,

Thank you for your response.  I have information for you:

  • Bamboo version: /rest/api/latest/info
<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8" standalone="yes"?><info><version>9.2.11</version><edition></edition><buildDate>2024-02-05T09:45:00.000Z</buildDate><buildNumber>90210</buildNumber><state>RUNNING</state>
  • Access /rest/api/latest/planDirectoryInfo/TASP-TASFLATLAND
    I attempted the alternate option but I discover the bearer API token does not have the privileges to access this endpoint:
{"message":"You don't have global administration permission","status-code":403}
  • Bamboo overview authentication methods:
    I am trying to get a screenshot from the bamboo admin. 

Additional information:

I think the bamboo server is using Amazon S3 as artifact handler. Let me confirm.
