Sign up Log in script throws error

William Flow October 4, 2022

I use the script found at


CURL="curl -s -k -X GET"
DELIMITER="@#CaPaBiliTy#@" # Set this to a string you know that will not appear on any Agent name
AGENTS=$(${CURL} -u ${USER}:${PASS} "${BAMBOO_SERVER}/rest/api/latest/agent/remote" | jq -r '.[] | .name|=gsub(" "; "_") | [.id, .name] | join('\"${DELIMITER}\"')')

get_capability() {
  ${CURL} -u ${USER}:${PASS} "${BAMBOO_SERVER}/rest/api/latest/agent/${1}/capability" \
    | jq -r '.[] | .key|=gsub(" "; "\\ ") | .value|=gsub("\\\\";"\\\\") | [.key, .value] | join("=")' | sort

for AGENT in ${AGENTS[@]}; do
  agent=(${AGENT/${DELIMITER}/ });
  get_capability ${agent[0]} >${agent[1]}

I edit it with my username, password, and site, set it as an executable then run it and get error:

parse error: Invalid numeric literal at line 1, column 10


Shouldn't something you post on your site work out of the box?

Hello @William Flow

That's a jq message. It means the input is not the one expected by the filter. Have you tried running each part of the script individually without piping it to jq and seeing the results?

As noted on the page, that script requires jq 1.6. Make sure to use that version or later.

I checked it looked right but no problem I re-wrote the script to make it work
