Pipeline hung at ftp upload

I have created my first pipeline from a Java-Maven-project. I can do a nice build, I can use the artifacts to load them into the relevant "Download" section of my repo.


However, I want to provide the build output for users on a different server. I want to upload the files via FTP. I am using the Tool. I think I have set up everything correctly in my yml which looks like this:

image: hbongen/openjfx-maven:latest

- step:
name: Build and Test
- maven
- mvn -B verify --file pom.xml -Djavafx-location=/usr/share/java/openjfx/jre/lib/ext/jfxrt.jar
- pipe: atlassian/ftp-deploy:0.3.6
USER: $ftp_test_user
PASSWORD: $ftp_test_pw
SERVER: $ftp_test_host
LOCAL_PATH: /opt/atlassian/pipelines/agent/build/target
EXTRA_ARGS: "--exclude=antrun/ --exclude=classes/ --exclude=generated-sources/ --exclude=generated-test-sources/ --exclude=maven-archiver/ --exclude=maven-status/ --exclude=surefire-reports/ --exclude=test-classes/


However, upon executing the pipeline, the FTP upload hangs with the info message

INFO: Starting FTP deployment to $ftp_test_host:/...


Can anybody explain this behaviour and point me to the right direction?

@chmaurer  Hi. Nothing is wrong. When this pipe start executing, it prints you this info message, which includes SERVER and REMOTE_PATH variables. Deploy means upload.

Hi Igor, yes thanks. I guess I have not stated my question right: After waiting for one minute, I still cannot see any updates to the upload status, but the files to be uploaded are only approx. 30mb in size... So I guess this is not how it should be? Or how long could an ftp upload take in your opinion?

Please add 

DEBUG: 'true'

to variables to show more details. 

Hi Igor, thanks for your suggestion. I did it, the output is after a few seconds:

INFO: Starting FTP deployment to $ftp_test_host:/...
+ echo -e '\e[36mINFO: Starting FTP deployment to $ftp_test_host:/...\e[0m'
+ set +e
+ lftp -u '$ftp_test_user,$ftp_test_pw' -e 'set ftp:ssl-allow no; mirror --delete-first -vvv --exclude=antrun/ --exclude=classes/ --exclude=generated-sources/ --exclude=generated-test-sources/ --exclude=maven-archiver/ --exclude=maven-status/ --exclude=surefire-reports/ --exclude=test-classes/ --exclude=original--3.0.0-SNAPSHOT.jar -R /opt/atlassian/pipelines/agent/build/target /;quit' $ftp_test_host

After approx. 2 min I am stopping the pipeline as nothing happens any mroe.

@chmaurer one of possible reasons is that you have problems with `lftp`
Maybe this
or this 
can help you.

Unfortunately this did not help me. And my build minutes got used up for this month while trying to get things working.

Unfortunately I switched over to gitlab, where things seem to be working like a charm. Debugging output was much better over there, there I was able to figure things out and to get it working.
