Hello @Jonathan Valliere welcome to the Atlassian Community :)

What directory did you searched for ``? I have downloaded the `atlassian-bamboo-6.8.1.tar.gz` from and after extracting the package, I could find the `` inside the extracted package `bin` folder.


I actually ended up grabbing the OSX build which had the shell scripts.  As I said the ZIP file does not contain the shell scripts; you are correct that the tar.gz file does.

Ok! Now I understand your point.

I will raise an issue to improve the naming of this files as depending on the file ending for OS separation is indeed confusing. 

Thanks for bringing this up :)


All the other Atlassian products I use seem to have identical ZIP and TAR.GZ archives.  I was expecting the ZIP to contain the shell scripts.  Its pure laziness on my part because typing "unzip" is faster than the "tar -zxvf".
