Bamboo plan labelling with overridden variable adds 2 labels instead of 1 label

I'm having one build plan with 2 branches: master and dev.

I keep software version in one of the plan variables: 

  • Variable name: MY_VERSION
  • Variable value: 1.0.0

I would like to label every build in master branch with "1.0.0".

In order to achieve it I created another plan variable:

  • Variable name: MY_BAMBOO_LABEL
  • Variable value: ${bamboo.MY_VERSION}

I managed to achieve it in my job configuration and it works fine:

Job -> Miscellaneous -> Labels -> ${bamboo.MY_BAMBOO_LABEL}


Now, I would like to override this value for every build from dev branch and label it with 1.0.0-SNAPSHOT. In order to achieve it I added a variable to the branch (not to the plan): 

  • Variable name: MY_BAMBOO_LABEL
  • Variable value: ${bamboo.MY_VERSION}-SNAPSHOT

Under the variable I get a little note that: 

Overrides plan value: ${bamboo.MY_VERSION} 


I was expecting to get only one label on builds on dev branch e.g.  1.0.0-SNAPSHOT however my builds are labeled with 2 labels, both 1.0.0 and 1.0.0-SNAPSHOT.

What am I doing wrong? Is there another way to achieve it?

Hi @BartoszMiller

I've tried to reproduce this behavior without success. I'm running Bamboo 6.10.2 where the issue is not happening. 

  • Can you share the Bamboo version you are running so I can try this configuration again?
  • Are you rerunning the same build or running a new build?
  • Are you using any other configuration or plugin not mentioned that could affect this?

I'll wait for your comments.
