Changing how Bamboo upgrades the Subversion working copy version during checkout
Platform notice: Server and Data Center only. This article only applies to Atlassian products on the server and data center platforms.
Bamboo automatically upgrades any Subversion source code working copy it checks out by running
svn upgrade (more information here). If you use a Subversion client version other than the one that runs on Bamboo to access this code, any Bamboo builds on that code may fail. This KB provides you with configuration options to prevent that.
- All Bamboo releases
- Subversion repositories
Bamboo always applies the latest Subversion working copy version when checking out code and possibly pushing it back to the repository. If you want to tell Bamboo to use a specific Subversion working copy version, you will need to run Bamboo with the following system property:
X.X is the SVN version that you want to retain for your code.
Valid values for this parameter are 1.3, 1.4, 1.5, 1.6, 1.7, and 1.8
For example, setting this parameter to 1.5 tells Bamboo to:
- Check out code to version 1.5 if no working copy exists, and
- Do not automatically upgrade any already checked-out code of an existing working copy to be compatible with Subversion 1.6.
Please check the Configuring your system properties page to know how to add the
-Dbamboo.svn.wc.format=X.X property to Bamboo.
