Derive the Artifact URL for external reference?

We just upgraded from Bamboo 2.7.2 to 3.1.4, and it looks like the URLs for the artifact files has changed.

Has anyone found a way to derive the URL for an artifact file so it can be provided to an external app which will download the package?

Currently, the URL looks like this:
/browse/<ProjectKey>-<PlanKey>-<BuildNumber>/artifact/<JobKey>/<Artifact Name Description>/ZipFileName.zip

Is there a way to derive this inside the NAnt job for any given random project artifact?

https://bamboo.mydomain.local/browse/${bamboo.ProjectKey??}-${bamboo.PlanKey??}-${bamboo.buildNumber}/artifact/${bamboo.JobKey??}/${??}/ZipFileName.zip

Use first two parts of bamboo.buildKey to determine <ProjectKey>-<PlanKey>

Use bamboo.buildNumber to determine <BuildNumber>

Use last part of bamboo.buildKey to determine <JobKey> . Note that if your artifact is a shared artifact, you should use 'shared' instead of job key.

The <Artifact Name Description> is the label you have given to your artifact with spaces substituted with dashes.

Thanks for your help, i was afraid it would involve some kind of string parsing :-\

Is the Artifact-Name-Description array not available from within Bamboo in any way?

Well, it is. You can get the URLs and the array using REST calls, but that's slightly more complicated. Have a look at REST documentation ( <tt>results/result/artifacts/artifact/link</tt> )

Thanks for your help!

Do you need the URL to use it to download the artifact or just to store the URL somewhere?

We are providing the URL to an external program to store and later download the artifact. Thus the requirement for the full URL to the resulting ArtifactNameDescription\artifactName.zip location.
