Can you configure GitHub with custom URL?

We have a custom URL from GitHub like There does not seem to be any option to do that in Bamboo 5.8.1!

I am currently configuring our repositories as linked Git repositories and also specifying the repository ssh URL with the private key and branch.

It looks like I have to create a linked repository whenever I need to provide a different branch! In that sense, the bamboo linked repository is more like a 'repository + branch + key'. Is there an alternative where I can specify branch while specifying the source code checkout task or similar?

I have the same key for all my repositories. Do I need to specifically upload it whenever I specify a Bamboo linked repository? Is there a way I can just upload the key once as a global fall-back key for all repositories?

Regarding your second question. Can you please describe your scenario with more details? Why is your top level Plan using branch of the repository? Did you have a chance to read this documentation: ?

Is there any other way to set system variable other than ? I am interested in knowing if there is a GUI/Web UI way to do it. (Of course, it will need restart?)

There's no GUI for that

I, too, have a github Enterprise.  The property you mention is set where?  bamboo.cfg.xml?
