Create artifact from SSH-Task

I am using bamboo ssh-task to connect to remote server and execute a series of commands which produce a json type of content which I assign to a bash variable.

Is it possible to assign this value of bash variable to artifact or something ?

Or lets put it this way:
It is possible to get bamboo global varibles into ssh-task bash shell with syntax ${bamboo.variable}, e.g, :

ssh ${bamboo.username}@servername.com

Can I change value of bamboo variable from inside ssh-task ? like:

${bamboo.someVariable}=valueOfVariableMadeDuringSSHTask

and later use it in other jobs/tasks ?

It's possible, though it requires some work to achieve. Since Bamboo doesn't have access to environment of the process it spawns, you need to:

- create Java properties file with variables you want to set

- download the file from the host you ssh to Bamboo's working directory (using scp)

- use Variable Inject Task to read the properties file into Bamboo variable. If you set the scope of variables to 'result' they are going to be available in later stages, if you set it to local they'll only be available in following task of the same job.
