Will support for Bamboo 4.4.4 in the SCP/SSH plugin arrive?

Hello reader,

A couple days ago I upgraded our bamboo to 4.4.4.

Everything works apart from the SCP plugin (using the latest version, 1.18).

I'm a noobie java developer myself so I had a look at the stack trace and source code.

ScpTask.java is trying to look up the AuthType in the TaskContext (line 190) but the context is returning null which leads to a NPE. So I guess that way TaskContexts work has changed from version 4.4.3->4.4.4.

I'd love to help out fix this problem so let me know if there is anything I can do.

I'm going to try downloading the sourcecode and hacking together a version that works for my own selfish needs until a "real" version is released by Atlassian.

Thank you for you time,

Hi Duncan,

There were some problems with SCP plugin, but we did some improvements, and the current version is 1.20. Please shut down your Bamboo instance, copy the BambooHome/webapp/WEB-INF/classes/atlassian-bundled-plugins.zip to a different directory, extract the content, replace the existing bamboo-scp-plugin-1.x.jar file with the downloaded version 1.20 plugin, archive the list of jar files, and replace the original atlassian-bundled-plugins.zip file with the updated one.

Can you please give that a try and confirm that it works?
