Uncaught exception thrown by REST service

Hi All,

I'm new to bamboo and trying out bamboo 6.2.1. I want to create a build branch with every new branch in bitbucket. Only bamboo does not create the new branch. When I restart bamboo the build branch is created. When I check the logs i'm getting every couple minutes the same error. 

Thank you,

Hey Danny, 

Check your <bamboo-install>/conf/server.xml, specifically the scheme attribute on your port 8085 connector. Looks like there's a backslash in-front of https which needs to be removed.

That's pretty odd though, I'd expect your entire instance be behaving very strangely if that was the case.

Just double check the Base URL at Bamboo Administration > Overview > General Configuration too, but it has formatting validation that would have prevented that entry.

I recommend deleting & re-creating the application link between Bitbucket and Bamboo, if you have to fix anything unusual in the above configurations (or have fixed it previously).
