Conditional task replacement issue


I have a strange scenario I am struggling to figure out. 

I have two sequential conditional tasks on a build plan.  The condition is on a Bitbucket variable coming in to the build called

The first step I check if it exists, if it does the command runs with the variable being substituted with the actual key from Bitbucket and the command runs fine.

The second step I check if it does not exist and I run a build on the base branch using a different variable.

Interesting once the variable is substituted in the first step, the second conditional does not find it and therefore also runs instead of being skipped.

This is the log where you can see it being odd, the condition all of a sudden says that variable does not exist.

simple  11-Mar-2021 14:40:21    All conditions for task 'Sonar Scan PR' were met. Conditions: Variable exists

command 11-Mar-2021 14:40:21    Substituting variable: ${} with 19

command 11-Mar-2021 14:40:21    Substituting variable: ${} with feature/SonarBuildTest

command 11-Mar-2021 14:40:21    Substituting variable: ${} with dev

***<logs cut here>***

simple  11-Mar-2021 14:41:16    All conditions for task 'Sonar Scan Branch' were met. Conditions: Variable not exists

command 11-Mar-2021 14:41:16    Substituting variable: ${bamboo.repository.git.branch} with feature/SonarBuildTest


Does the variable only become available to the job if it is referenced in the argument?  That is the only thing I can think of apart from it being a bug (or something I am overlooking of course)

Any help would be appreciated! :)

Don't use "bamboo." prefix and see how it goes

Many thanks Alexey that worked.
