Atlas-run for HelloWorld plugin is trying to download amps-dispatcher-maven-plugin version [m[K8.0.2 url encoded as %1B%5Bm%1B%5BK8.0.2

I’m trying the HelloWorld plugin at

The atlas-run command fails because maven cannot download the amps-dispatcher-maven-plugin JAR file.

I see it sitting in both the atlassian-public repository and the atlassian-plugin-sdk repository that got installed on my drive when I installed the plugin SDK.

I think the problem is that it is trying to load version [m[K8.0.2 instead of version 8.0.2. I can see a directory “[m[K8.0.2” getting created in my global repository .m2/repository/com/atlassian/maven/plugins/amps-dispatcher-maven-plugin.

I don’t know what is setting the weird/corrupted version for amps-dispatcher-maven-plugin. It is not directly in pom.xml

A square bracket that is URL encoded is %5B. Here is what the failed operation looks like:

Any hints appreciated. Thanks!

I worked around this by forcing the AMPS version with -u for my atlas-run command.

-u [value], --maven-plugin-version [value]
Maven AMPS plugin version to use (default is 8.0.2)

>atlas-run -u 8.0.2

I decided to try forcing the version w/ the -u switch even though I have the amps.version property specified as 8.0.2 in pom.xml. I decided to do this because I’ve run into other problems on other projects where atlas-debug failed and said I needed to use another AMPS version and did not respond to me changing the version in pom.xml. I forced it with -u.
