To configure a NAnt task:
- Navigate to the Tasks configuration tab for the job (this will be the default job if creating a new plan).
- Select the name of the desired NAnt task, or select Add task > NAnt if creating a new task.
Complete the following settings:
A description of the task, which is displayed in Bamboo.
Disable this task
Check, or clear, to selectively run this task.
Add condition to task
Make task run only when a certain condition is met.
You can find conditions on Atlassian Marketplace or implement your own.
The NAnt executable that is available to perform the task. The executable that you select will become one of the task's (and so, the job's) requirements.
You can add other executables, if required.
The relevant file name (e.g.
default.build). You can include variables (see Bamboo variables).
The NAnt target that you want Bamboo to execute. for example:
run. You can also include variables (see Bamboo variables).
The NAnt command line options that you want to include. You can also include variables (see Bamboo variables).
If required, specify environment variables and working directory settings:Environment variables (Optional)
Additional system environment variables that you want to pass to your build. Note that existing environment variables are automatically available to the executable. You can also include Bamboo global or build-specific variables (see Bamboo variables).
Multiple variables should be separated with spaces. Parameters with spaces must be quoted (e.g ANT_OPTS="-Xms200m -Xmx700m").
Working subdirectory (Optional)
An alternative subdirectory, relative to the job's root directory, where Bamboo will run the executable. The root directory contains everything checked out from the job's configured source repository. If you leave this field blank, Bamboo will look for build files in the root directory. This option is useful if your task has a build script in a subdirectory and the executable needs to be run from within that subdirectory.
Run as Powershell script (Optional, Windows only)
Check the Run as Powershell script checkbox to run the script with Powershell instead of cmd.exe which interprets .bat files. The inline editor supports Powershell syntax.
- Select Save.
Note that you cannot use Clover to collect code coverage for NAnt builds, as Clover only supports builders of Java/Groovy-based projects, such as Ant, Maven or Grails.
