Bamboo Specs - howto inject variables?

Using bamboo-specs.yml, I can't seem to find a way to inject variables to the result scope (similar to the task inject bamboo variables).

Is this feature currently missing?

Yeah, I noticed, seems the yaml support is on a proof of concept level :/

Hi Jan,

There is an open feature request for this and we encourage you to upvote and comment on it:  BAM-19858 .

Thanks, I upvoted it. Sorry to see, but it feels like Bamboo is considered a second level citizen these days.

It is just a matter of time, Jan. Bamboo is introducing so many new features in every major release. I'm confident the feature gets significantly better over the upcoming releases. Thanks for understanding.

@Jeyanthan I Thanks for the comment, but I have to say I disagree. Looking at the release logs, a lot of things are mentioned but very few that actually make a difference.


I've been running Bamboo since early 5.x and so far there are only two things that really has simplified life after that; the docker runner (which I used before wrapped in an own shell script), and the support for start building features on PR creation. Most of the other things are minor / bugfix / not-that-important.


If you compare this ti CircleCi, Travis, Bitbucket Pipelines, etc, the drive for Yaml as configuration has been going a lot forward. In Bamboo, the yaml support hasn't really changed after initial release, which makes it rather useless for now.
