Hi @Vineesh,

That type of error can have two main causes:

  1. The file is not there.
  2. The file somehow has restricted permissions.

How to mitigate them?

  1. Check if the file is there or add an extra command in your build just to check that.
    You can navigate to that directory in the terminal after the build as well.
    Make sure you are checking the right agent in case you are running this build in a remote agent.
  2. If the file is there, check the permissions to make sure the python command can access the file.

If not of those options are the case, try to navigate to the working directory from the terminal and check if you can run the script using the exact same command Bamboo is using.

Let me know how it goes.

@Vineesh Did you find a solution for this?

@Daniel Santos What if I do not have terminal access to the file? Like, I am using Bamboo in a corporate environment, I do not have access to it.

Found it. It is because of User Permissions.

In case someone has the same problem of not having terminal access. Just Do:

1. Script Task and write Inline, "chmod XXX <filename>".

2. Create another Script Task and call the file there.

Hi @Bharath_Venkat_Rajan,

I'm sorry, I didn't have time to answer your message.
Yes, I would say that any time you need terminal you can use a script task for that.

I'm glad you found your own way. =]
