ENV variable to be used in task script argument

Dear Atlassian,


I have a custom variable

key: [executable.bamboo.test] value: [thisisatest] type: ENVIRONMENT

I want to use it in a deployment task as argument to a powershell script

-ConnectionURL ${executable.bamboo.test}


However, it looks it's not set yet or I used it wrong way.

What's interesting, if I dump all varialbles inside the script, I can see it's set.

Most probably I'm doing something wrong. It looks that ENV variable is not accessible to be used in scripts arguments. Other variables are fine, I mean global or build variables.

I appreciate you help. 

Kind Regards

ok, guys, I finally realized that prefix bamboo is always required for variables.
