SCP latest files only

Using the SCP task built into Bamboo, is it possible to only copy the latest files and folders over to the remote server?

Hello Robert,

Thank you for your question.

Bamboo does not provide the option to select only the files and directories last modified/updated. This is something you will be required to provide to Bamboo.

You could, by using a Script task, track files and directories and copy them across to the remote server.

If you find this answer useful, I would kindly ask you to accept it so the same will be visible to others who might be facing the same issue you have inquired.

Thank you for your understanding.

Kind regards,

Rafael is correct. Bamboo doesn't support this out of the box. To make things worse, the SCP function is much slower than using SCP from a modern distro.

I ended up using a Script task that looks like this:

echo "-----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY----- Your key here -----END RSA PRIVATE KEY-----" | sed -e "s/- /-\n/" | sed -e "s/= /=\n/" | sed -e "2s/ /\n/g" > $HOME/tmpkey
chmod 0600 $HOME/tmpkey
rsync -avze "ssh -i $HOME/tmpkey" ${}/ updateuser@$SERVER:/home/direct/prod/direct/
rm -f $HOME/tmpkey
