Build log

Hi @Stephen_Franklin,

Thanks for creating this #issues:build-issues report!

From the build’s log:

FAILURE: Build failed with an exception.

* Where:
Script '/bitrise/src/X/bintray.gradle' line: 60

* What went wrong:
A problem occurred evaluating script.
> /bitrise/src/ (No such file or directory)

It seems you have a dependency which requires auth to be specified in (this file is usually git ignored, exactly because you specify private infos in it and so it should not be in the repo).

Local reproduction:

  1. Please do a clean git clone of the repo, into a new directory on your Mac/PC
  2. Then try to run a build from there

You’ll get the same error.


Generate that file before any Gradle command during the build, e.g. right before the install-missing-android-tools.

There are many ways to do this, probably the easiest is to use a Script step and just generate the file there. Checking your log you already have a Script step (title: Do anything with Script step) right before this step, so you don’t even have to add one.

Simply specify this as the Script:

#!/usr/bin/env bash

echo 'Generating ...'

cat > "./" <<- FILE_CONTENT
Line 1.
Line 2.

Simply replace Line 1, Line 2 with the lines to write into the file. The file’s content is defined between the two FILE_CONTENT text.

E.g. it can be something like


It’s probably a good idea to NOT to include the private infos in the config / script directly, so a more advanced Script would be something like:

#!/usr/bin/env bash

echo 'Generating ...'

cat > "./" <<- FILE_CONTENT

and then specify BINTRAY_API_KEY as a Secret in the workflow editor. This way your config will only include the placeholder ($BINTRAY_API_KEY), and it will be replaced during the build with the value you specify in Secrets.

If you’d have any questions just let us know! :slight_smile:


same issue faced by me today, got error msg like :-

Hy there!
could you try adding this line to the build.gradle file’s repositories field?
maven { url '' }
