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/ 1: /mnt/data/bamboo-home/temp/ 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:

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







script :

 ${bamboo.npm} run init-test-db


You can do this or directly write those values in script

That should work!
