Bamboo isn't inserting value for a global variable

I'm following the steps here to use bamboo variables with maven: https://confluence.atlassian.com/bamboo/bamboo-variables-289277087.html

 

This is a shortened version of what I have in my goal for the build plan (there are more variables I am trying to insert): 

clean deploy -Pdevelopment sonar:sonar -Dapphostname=${bamboo.app.hostname}

 

Under global variables in bamboo I have this value: bamboo.app.hostname = theValueIPut

 

In the war that is being produced I can see the the variable name (${bamboo.app.hostname}) was used instead of the value (theValueIPut). 

 

Is there some setting somewhere that I have to turn on to have global variables work? The documentation makes it seem that bamboo should just replace ${bamboo.app.hostname} with theValueIPut.

Hi @Jeff Jacobsen ! How are you doing? Welcome to the community!

When you define the variable, you dont have to start it with "bamboo.". You have to put it only in the places you use the variable.

Your variable should be named just app.hostname.

Hope this helps!

removing bamboo out of the name does not fix the issue. I tried and all that changes is that app.hostname is showing up in the output instead of bamboo.app.hostname.
