Pavankumar April 25, 2023

While running the bamboo plan fails to execute the robot tests as below:

command	26-Apr-2023 05:22:39	Beginning to execute external process for build 'Platform - Validation - Initial Job #63 (P-V-JOB1-63)'\n ... running command line: \n/home/root/bamboo-agent-home/temp/\n ... in: /home/root/bamboo-agent-home/xml-data/build-dir/P-V-JOB1\n

build	26-Apr-2023 05:22:39	Entered into scripts folder
error	26-Apr-2023 05:22:39	Traceback (most recent call last):

Hello @Pavankumar

That's a Python environment configuration issue.

Please review if all the required modules in your code are installed on the Build agent and if they are accessible by the user that is running the Agent (in your case root)

The Robot Framework can be installed on the Agent by running:

  • pip install robotframework

To reproduce the issue and test for alternatives, you can log to your Agent server as the same user that runs the Bamboo Agent application, cwd to the /home/root/bamboo-agent-home/xml-data/build-dir/P-V-JOB1 directory and run the build commands manually.

Kind regards,

I had a similar problem running robot tests in a different environment. That "ModuleNotFoundError" can be tricky. Ensure the Bamboo agent knows where to find the 'robot' module. Check its settings and paths. If it's still not working, maybe get help from Bamboo support or others who have faced this, or try a telepresence robot instead. I know it can be frustrating, but keep at it!
