Unknown RepositoryDefinition Error Using Build Plan Branches

Hi! I'm using build plan branches for the first time, and can't get it to work. When I attempt to run a build for my branch, I get the following error. Any help is appreciated.

System Error Details

Build x.example.com - Build Serving - PROJ-1234-branch-name 1 : Plan 'XXX-XXX-1' started but a fatal error occurred 
(java.lang.IllegalArgumentException : Unknown RepositoryDefinition 9994243)

Hello Matthew,

Thank you for your inquire.

Unknown RepositoryDefinition 9994243

The error above related to the fact that at certain moment there was a repository with ID 9994243 and, for some reason (i.e.: deletion) the same is no longer available to the Plan you are attempting on running. That said, please:

  1. make sure the repository exists under "Bamboo administration >> Overview >> Build resources >> Linked repositories" OR;
  2. make sure there is a Repository set up under "Plan configuration >> Repositories" tab, and the repository in question is the one you want to Source Code Checkout from
  3. make sure the same repository as above is selected under "Plan configuration >> Branches >> <YOUR_BRANCH> >> Source Repository"
  4. make sure the "Source Code Checkout" task has the repository in question selected

If you find this answer useful, I would kindly ask you to accept it so the same will be visible to others who might be facing the same issue you have inquired.

Thank you for your understanding.

Kind regards,
Rafael P. Sperafico
