Bamboo variables in yaml file (not bamboo specs yaml)

Hello guys! I would like to call a python script  via bamboo task (inline script) This python script load variables from yaml file like this:

parser.add_argument( '--config_path', default='config.yaml', help='path of the configuration file')


with open(args.config_path) as source: 
config = yaml.safe_load(source)

git_config = config['git']
git_username = git_config['username']
git_password = git_config['password']

In yaml file I would like to use  bamboo variables, how should I define bamboo variables inside yaml file?

Thanks for yout answer!

Hello @Erik Zilinsky welcome to the community! :)

Bamboo provides variables for external scritps with environment variables. While it's possible to hack around your yaml and python scripts (see this StackOverflow answer), I would not recommend you to do that.

The best way to go would be to either read the environment variables direct into your python script, or use the inline variables that Bamboo provides with inline script tasks (documentation link).

I hope that helps!

Thanks for your answer, we want to keep using that yaml file so ... we replacing bamboo vars via chevron python package like this:

import os
import re
import sys
import chevron

template = open(sys.argv[1])

vars = {
'confluence_url': os.environ['bamboo_confluence_url'],
'nexus_user': os.environ['bamboo_nexus_user'],
'nexus_password': os.environ['bamboo_nexus_password'],
'confluence_report_page_id': os.environ['bamboo_confluence_report_page_id'],
'sonar_url' : os.environ['bamboo_sonar_url'],
'sonar_projectkey': os.environ['bamboo_sonar_projectkey'],
'sonar_secret': os.environ['bamboo_sonar_secret']

rendered = chevron.render(template, vars)

with open('config_composed.yaml', 'w') as composed:
print(rendered, file=composed)

Have a nice day!

@Erik Zilinsky  Let me see in I Understand.  This my be way off. Your ability to translate from lone language to another and the default confuriation along with the configuration path that lets you go from not just your default yaml file to another paths or modules and the ability to add things to your configuration file is the problem? Al;ong with the other stuff you need fixed? Try to undeerstand so I can help.

I apologize if it sounds like gibberish.  I'm trying.
