"Latest Bamboo Spec throws exception"



I updated the version of Bamboo Spec from 6.9.1 to 7.1.1 in my pom.xml since our Bamboo server was updated to 7.1.1

After that we started getting the following exception thrown in the server when we try to create a Bamboo plan using the API:

java.lang.NoSuchMethodError:  "java.lang.RuntimeException: java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: org.yaml.snakeyaml.LoaderOptions.setMaxAliasesForCollections(I)V\r\n\tat com.atlassian.bamboo.specs.util.IsolatedYamlizator.execute(\r\n\tat com.atlassian.bamboo.specs.util.BambooSpecSerializer.dump(\r\n\tat com.atlassian.bamboo.specs.util.BambooServer.publish(


Kindly help. Looks like this is a issue with the latest Bamboo Spec version.

i have a very similar error when deploying Bamboo specs using "mvn -P publish-specs":

Execution default-cli of goal com.atlassian.bamboo:bamboo-specs-runner:7.2.2:run failed: 
java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException: java.lang.NoSuchMethodError: org.yaml.snakeyaml.DumperOptions.setDefaultFlowStyle(Lorg/yaml/snakeyaml/DumperOptions$FlowStyle;)V -> [Help 1]

 I have no SnakeYAML dependencies in my pom.xml. It seems to be a problem with the latest Bamboo spec version.

@dbu what's bamboo-specs version at your pom.xml

Do you see any snakeyaml dependency when run 

mvn dependency:tree 
mvn help:effective-pom

Bamboo specs version is: 7.2.2

Dependency tree shows: org.yaml:snakeyaml:jar:1.27:compile


I have to correct my previous post: I am using "atlas-mvn -P pusblish-specs" instead of "mvn -P pusblish-specs".

I found out that the problem occurs only with Atlassian plugin SDK 8.2.6. If I use mvn instead of atlas-mvn or downgrade the SDK to 8.2.2 the deployment works fine.

If you have any dependencies to SnakeYAML at pom.xml, update them to use version 1.26

This helped fix the issue. Thanks Alexey.

Glad to hear. Can you tell why you need SnakeYAML at dependencies?
