bamboo scp task with artifact not working as expected: creates remote dir from the destination path of the artifact


we have an artifact from another plan containing a directory structure, like


We want to scp the files of this artifact.

To do this we first define an "Artifact download configuration" task in our plan to make the artifact known to the scp task. Without that we are not able to choose this artifact in the artifact-selectbox of the scp task, right?
In the "Artifact download configuration" task we define a destination path "foobar" for our artifact.

If we define a remote path like "/home/user/conf" the scp task creates


but we expect to get


If we define an empty destination path we get more files than we wanted since our base directory contains other files beside the files from our artifact.

Any help?

Shouldn't the scp task support the definition of a working directory or otherwise ignore the destination path from the "Artifact download configuration" task?

Answer from another topic suggesting to use the script task:
