Running shell command with a Script task not in place

I want to run the command npm run myScript within my built plan, with an Inline Script task, but I'm getting an error that npm was not found:

/mnt/data/bamboo-home/temp/ESR-WRITETEST5-JOB1-4-ScriptBuildTask-3554693384958793235.sh: 1: /mnt/data/bamboo-home/temp/ESR-WRITETEST5-JOB1-4-ScriptBuildTask-3554693384958793235.sh: npm: not found

When on localhost, I need to be within the /app directory in my project, in order to run npm commands. Apparently Bamboo puts the script in a temporary folder, outside of the project, thus npm is not found. Do you know how to overcome this issue?

This is the configuration of the task:

Galin,

Just so you know there is a npm task available which you can use to run the npm tasks.

But for your question: you need to tell bamboo where your node is installed. I have definied a variable as npm and this is how I use if I want to use it in inline script

 

Variable:

  
npm

/home/(company_dir)/tools/node_js/node-v4.4.0-linux-x64/bin/node

/home/(company_dir)/tools/node_js/node-v4.4.0-linux-x64/bin/npm

 

script :

 ${bamboo.npm} run init-test-db

 

You can do this or directly write those values in script

That should work!
