Unable to publish artifact (no error)


I am trying to create a simple artifact to share a source tree between stages. This is just a simple test to help me better understand how Bamboo works.

I have Location set to "fw_comp" which is the Checkout Directory I have configured for the Source Code Checkout task. The Copy Pattern is **/* so I expect the full fw_comp tree to be copied into the artifact.

When I run I get the following error in the log. From what I have read, the error "Unable to publish artifact" is usually followed by some kind of reason but mine is just blank. Any idea what this means? This is a fresh install of Bamboo and we are all new to this tool so I am wondering if this indicates some kind of configuration problem rather than a problem with my plan config.

The artifact is required for down stream Stages and Jobs, build will now fail.

@Philip Rittenhouse - Did you ever find a solution to this?

No, sorry, I never did.

I have experienced this same problem recently. For me, the solution was to check the file and folder permissions of the artifact folder on the bamboo server, and make sure that the user running the bamboo server had ownership.

In my case the solution, when finally found, was this:

I had used Artifact copy pattern "maven_*.jar". For some reason, the build was generating  the .jar file without the prefix maven. So by changing copy pattern to "*.jar", the artifact was found and passed ok into downstream


I found that artifact publication can fail without an error if there is not enough disk space on the server (if using local storage). You can check the "Disk space free" on the "System information" page in your Bamboo configuration.

I added an improvement request to fix this:
