Hi Torsten,

Thank you for your cooperation on the Support ticket. I wanted to provide a summary here in case other users may find it helpful.

We found that there was an Artifact Download Task that was still configured to find the artifact from build BHT_EAC. This is what caused the error.

To resolve it, we did the following:

  1. Go to the Plan configuration for EAC-EACLIB
  2. Check for any Artifact Download Task
  3. Check the source plan – do any of these list the name for BHT-EAC?
    • If so, select the new name of EAC-EACLIB
  4. Try the export to Specs again

Thanks again! If this was helpful, please "Accept" this solution by clicking on the green checkmark. 

If there is anything else we can assist with, please do not hesitate to reach out!

We have more than 300 build plans. 

This is the only one where the export has an error.

Hello @Torsten Stach,

Thank you for your update.

Could you please raise a support case on so we can gather more information and resolve this issue for you?

Please, make sure of mentioning this inquire in Atlassian Community whilst raising the support case.

Kind regards,


We are running Bamboo in version 6.2.2

the response is:

Export to Bamboo Spec failed: null

Hello @Torsten Stach,

If plan BHT-EAC was moved to EAC-EACLIB, it means plan BHT-EAC no longer exists as you are no longer able to access http://localhost:8085/browse/BHT-EAC.

With that said, plan BHT-EAC cannot be exported using Bamboo Specs. Instead, you need to export the moved plan EAC-EACLIB

Kind regards,

Hello @Torsten Stach,

What is the Bamboo version you are running?

Are you able to access BHT-EAC from Bamboo's UI, i.e. http://localhost:8085/browse/BHT-EAC

Are you requesting the export from Actions >> View plan as Bamboo Specs or manipulating export URL (http://localhost:8085/exportSpecs/plan.action?buildKey=BHT-EAC)

Kind regards,
