Broken pipe when attempting to publish artifact

I'm attempting to publish an artifact from my remote agent to bamboo (version 5.5.1) using bamboo's artifact publisher. The build completes correctly up until the artifact publish step.

I have been seeing the following error (taken from the remote agents logs):

Connection has been shutdown: Broken pipe

I can't seem to find any information on what would cause this error.

Which URL does your agent use? If it's the reverse proxy URL, you may want to point directly at Bamboo's Tomcat URL.

It's a reverse proxy URL (running Nginx) and actual bamboo is on localhost. It would require a lot of configuartion changes otherwise.

Is it unusual to run bamboo behind a proxy? I seems like this would be a very common issue.

It's not unusual. But you won't find out if it's an issue with the proxy unless you reconfigure. Nginx versions quite often doesn't support full HTTP/1.1 . Some configuration options may prevent hte publishing from working too.

How about installing a different proxy then? For example, Apache?

You can use nginx (I've done it) - I believe that the issue is that nginx strips out the Content-Length so you'll need to allow that header through. Your best bet would be to take a look at the nginx error logs and the bamboo server logs at the same time. One of them should tell you which header is missing.

I managed to fix the issue by pointing directly to http://brokerURL:8085/agentServerrather then https://brokerURL/agentServer

Thanks for the help.

If you want to keep your nginx reverse proxy, like we did, because of SSL offloading, you need to add this to your config:


client_max_body_size 1G;


The size depends on the artifacts size you have.
