Accessing Linux agent environment variables in Bamboo task

I have set an environment variable on my Linux remote agent by editing /etc/environment. I verified that the variable is set using printenv.

When I run a task on the agent, this variable is not available. I tried running an inline script task which executed printenv, and it looks like most environment variables are not available.

How can I access my environment variable from a Bamboo task?

Seems like Bamboo only picks up environment variables that are available during a sudo command. I used visudo to add my environment variable to the env_keep setting in /etc/sudoers and everything is working!

any update on this?
