AttemptingSource Code Checkout from GIT to Bamboo - doesn't like path info.

Tried several variations of source checkout from GIT using Bambo without luck. Our GIT repository does not provide a URL path. As a result, Check Out Directory = 'file://\\\server\code$\Tools' results in error: ' failed.Creating directories for C:\Users\myUser\bamboo-home\xml-data\build-dir\PROJ-PLAND-JOB1\file:\server\code$\Tools\.git failed)'. Check Out Directory = 'file:///server/code$/tools' results in error 'Failed to open transport'. Check Out Directory = ‘//server/code$/tools' results in error 'is forbidden'. Outside of using a URL path, how can I reference our GIT repository for a proper Source Code Checkout?

Hi Bill,

There are a few steps to be taken in order to accomplish what you are looking for:

First of all, create a folder that will hold your Git repository on your network share in case you have your repository and Bamboo running on different servers. Otherwise, just follow the steps below.

For this example, lets assume you have your repository on drive D:

  1. From a Command Prompt (cmd) change to your mapped drive.
    cd d:
  2. Navigate to where your files will be store.
    cd myrepository\inhere
  3. Then create an empty Git repository. If you do not use the —bare option, you will have issues so don't leave that out.
    git init —bare
  4. Now if you don't have a local git repository yet, then you can clone your new repository wherever you like by navigating back to your local drive.
    cd development/mycode
    git clone file://d:\myrepository\inhere
    (UNC paths also work file://\server\share\username\scripts)
  5. When you clone, you automatically get a remote called "origin" and you can push to the server for safe keeping any time you make changes locally.
    git push origin master
  6. If you already have a Git repository and you just want to push out to the shared drive then you can do this from within your local git manged project.
    git remote add origin file://d:\myrepository\inhere
    git push origin master

Please, refer to Using Git on a Windows drive for further information.

Kind regards,
