What does "Unable to find job configured as a dependency provider" mean?

On many of my builds I see this error on the plan summary page. There isnt any more description to this so I am confused. Is this referring to a maven dependency or the nexus respository or something internal to bamboo? Anyone seen this before and know how to resolve it?

Also, this error is recurring for each build that I do so eventually I end up with a whole stack of them and they don't inhibit me from having a sucessful build.

Thanks.

It means you have "Automatic Dependency Management" enabled for one of your plans (Plan configuration page -> Dependencies) without having "Dependency Provider Task". It could also mean that there are children plans that don't have any enabled jobs. Basically try check your plan dependicies as I suspect the firs case

thanks, this cleaned up a lot of the errors I've been seeing.

I think the confusing part of this is that the "Automatic Dependency Management" option hides behind the "Advanced Options", and is turned on by default.
