This page describes how to configure Bamboo to use a GitHub repository.
You can specify repositories at the following levels in Bamboo:
- global – repositories are available to all plans in Bamboo.
- plan – repositories are available to all jobs in the Bamboo plan.
- job – repositories are available to all tasks in the Bamboo job.
The recommended approach is to set up linked source repositories at the global level – see Linking to source code repositories.
Configure a GitHub source code repository
- Navigate to the repository configuration for a linked repository, plan or job. See Linking to source code repositories.
- Either click Add Repository to add a new repository, or edit an existing repository configuration.
- Choose GitHub from the Source repository list.
- Enter a Display Name to help identify the repository in Bamboo.
- Enter your GitHub Username and Password.
- Click Load Repositories.
- You can configure the following advanced options for a GitHub source repository for your plan:
|Use submodules||Select to enable submodules support if these are defined for the repository. If native GitHub capability is not defined for agent submodules support will be disabled.|
|Command timeout||This is useful to stop hung Bitbucket processes. On slower networks, you may consider increasing the default timeout to allow Bamboo time to make an initial clone of the GitHub repository.|
|Verbose logs||Turns on
|Enable Quiet Period||Specifies a delay after a single commit is detected before the build is started. This allows multiple commits to be aggregated into a single build.|
Allows you to specify the files that Bamboo should, or should not, use to detect changes.
|Exclude Changesets||Enter a regular expression to match the commit messages for changesets that should not start a build.|
If your repository can be viewed in a web browser, select the repository type.
This allows links to relevant files to be displayed in the 'Code Changes' section of a build result.
|Stash – specify the following details for the repository:
Use this option to connect to a Bitbucket Server repository.
See Integrating Bamboo with Bitbucket Server for more information.
Fisheye – specify the URL and other details for the repository:
See Integrating Bamboo with Fisheye for more information.
How do I determine my Repository Path?
If you have previously run builds with changes from your repository, the easiest way of determining your repository path is to view the code changes and copy the path from the start of the path of one of the changed files, up to (but not including) the appropriate root directory. The root directories for repositories are the ones shown by Fisheye when browsing a repository (e.g.
