This page describes how to configure a Bamboo task to use a script executable. You can use Bash on Linux, and batch files on Windows.

To configure a script task:

  1. Navigate to the Tasks configuration tab for the job (this will be the default job if creating a new plan).
  2. Click the name of the desired script task, or click Add Task and then Script if creating a new task.
  3. Complete the following settings:

    Script configuration
    Task DescriptionA description of the task, which is displayed in Bamboo.
    Script locationSelect the location of the script file.
    • File — enter the location of the file in the Script file field. This can be either relative to the repository root of the plan, or absolute. You can include variables (see Bamboo variables).
    • Inline — enter the script in the Script body field.
    Argument

    Specify an argument to pass to the script. Arguments that contain spaces must be quoted. You can include variables (see Bamboo variables).

  4. 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 Sub Directory(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.

  5. Click Save.
