Having trouble linking a repository to TFS 2013 that uses GIT as its repository. 

The error I keep getting references "There is no history for the path .... Probably it doesn't exist."

RepositoryException: There is no history for the path $/testproject. Probably it doesn't exist

Hi Bob, Let me check this. I'll ping you back in a day or two (probably with a fix).

Hi Bob,

Which version of Bamboo are you running? Are you using the TFS repository plugin? The latest version of this plugin is compatible with Bamboo 5.0 - 5.8.

Can you also check if you're configuring it according to its documentation?

If this answer was helpful, please allow me to ask you to mark my answer as accepted in order to have it in the top of the thread, also helping other customers.

Thanks in advance!

Kind regards,
Felipe Kraemer

bamboo version 5.8.1 build 5866 and the latest version of the TFS Repository plugin

Hi Bob,

In your case you need to use GIT repository in Bamboo as well. The repos should match:

  • TFS repo in TFS -> TFS repo in Bamboo
  • GIT repo in TFS -> GIT repo in Bamboo

A sample url for GIT repo in TFS: https://myserver/tfs/defaultcollection/_git/myproject

More about configuring GIT repo in Bamboo: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/BAMBOO/Git

I set the Linked Rep to Git and set the Repo URL directly from the url I use when browsing it from TFS web admin http://server:port/tfs/collectionMame/_git/projectName I left Branch Set to nothing so it would default to master and I entered the username/password for my account to test the connection. The build results in the following error. (com.atlassian.bamboo.repository.RepositoryException : java.lang.RuntimeException: com.atlassian.bamboo.repository.RepositoryException: com.microsoft.tfs.core.exceptions.TECoreException: Unrecognized SSL message, plaintext connection?) TFS is behind our firewall and is not set up with an SSL but Bamboo seems to be trying to connect via SSL

Do need to make an unsigned ssl cert or is there a way to set bamboo up differently . . I'm not seeing much help with this in the documentation.
