git clone hangs in Bamboo using Stash

I'm trying to setup a build plan using Stash as repository. I recently upgraded to the latest versions of Stash and Bamboo to enable the new version of application linking and I have linked the applications together and the links seems to work fine except that the build hangs indefinitely on "Checking out revision.

git clone works fine on the bamboo server over https as well ssh using my own username and ssh key.

I cannot see any errors in the logs and there is no firewall between the bamboo and stash servers. I have decreased the command timeout in the shared repository settings to 4 minutes but the build hangs much longer than that.

Product versions:

Stash v2.12.2

Bamboo v5.5.0 build 4304

Build log:

Hi Anders,

Do you have a native git capability configured? If you dont define one, Bamboo uses the bundled jgit which is quite buggy. Try to add a git capability and try again

What Java version are you using for Bamboo?


I'm using OpenJDK 1.7. java -version output:

java version "1.7.0_25"
OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 2.3.10) (7u25-2.3.10-1~deb7u1)
OpenJDK Server VM (build 23.7-b01, mixed mode)

I was using the jgit client, which definitively shouldn't be used (and perhaps not even bundled with the product). Working like a charm with native git!

I have the same issue, and I have git capabilities set.
