Cannot access a new global variable with Bamboo

I added a new global variable but could not access it when configuring a task's command and environmental variable. If I used an old global variable in it's place, it sees it. Do I have to restart Bamboo?

Hello Ron,

Thank you for your question.

The 'global variable' you are referring to, is that created in Bamboo's UI (Bamboo administration >> Overview >> Build resources >> Global variables) or in your OS? If you have created outside Bamboo it is required to restart the application as the same does not have knowledge about other sessions.

If you find this answer useful, I would kindly ask you to accept it so the same will be visible to others who might be facing the same issue you have inquired.

Thank you for your understanding.

Kind regards,

The one created in the UI. One's that were previously created in the UI are accessible.
