Test for colorized output


How can I test for colorized output using Bamboo? I run unit tests to check if output is colorized. Using Bamboo's shell script no colors are printed and unit tests fail. If I login on the machine using ssh and run unit test manually, then all run well. In build log I can see expected output is colorized but system output is not colorized.

I tried to insert TERM=xterm-256color and CLICOLOR=1 in Bamboo's shell script but didn't work.

How can I enable color support for Bamboo's shell script?


* Mac OS X 10.14.2 (18C54)

* Bamboo version 6.7.1 build 60705 - 18 Oct 18

* rspec (3.8.0)

* ruby 2.5.0p0

Colorized output works for bamboo's shell. The framework I used, checks if current environment is a tty. And if is not, then do not print colors.
