When connecting Bamboo to a Git Repository hosted by TFS we are getting the following error.

com.atlassian.bamboo.repository.RepositoryException: com.microsoft.tfs.core.exceptions.TECoreException

I spoke with Sergey who seems to be the main guy for responding to TFS Repository addon you can see the thread here https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/13419867. He says that using the GIT protocol is what I want to use. Following his advice I set the linked repo to GIT and added an SSL to TFS. I can browse the SSL URL from the same server that Bamboo is running on. Still get the same TECoreException. The SSL URL can be browsed from any pc in our domain and is not this issue. Any help with this would be most appreciated.


Config Images Added - and I have also supplied username/password with no change in the exception.



Here is the full Error message as well...

(com.atlassian.bamboo.repository.RepositoryException : java.lang.RuntimeException: com.atlassian.bamboo.repository.RepositoryException: com.microsoft.tfs.core.exceptions.TECoreException: Unrecognized SSL message, plaintext connection?)

Hi Bob,

The exception says that you are still not using a GIT repo in Bamboo. Could you post some screenshots of your build plan config?

@Bob Alley Do you have only one source repo bound to the plan?

@Bob Alley That's strange. I noticed that Authentication Type for GIT repo is None (so it looks like it is not active). Do you have a skype?

Headed away from the office, will be back in an 90 minutes. Skype: ralley1@hotmail.com

Ok, I'll call you in a 90 minutes.

The resolution was to download a Git client on the build server and to manually add it to the bamboo executable's list. The error we were getting ranged from unauthorized to unable to validate ssl certificate. Once the local git client was installed and added to bamboo every thing worked and the Git Repo was finally able to be pulled down.


Thank you Sergey! I greatly appreciate your time and patience.

Bob A.
