Get revision number from artifacts from another job

Dear Community,

I created a buildjob that uses artifacts from two different buildjobs A and B (therefore, has no own repository). The job itself creates an artifact C that I want to upload to Artifactory (the binary version control tool). So, now I want to create properties that link directly to the revision number of the artifacts. In the buildjobs a and b that create A and B, it can be easily accessed with ${bamboo.repository.revision.number}. However, since I do not checkout any repo and only use the artifacts via the sharing artifact option:

the revision.number variable is not an option.

Do you have any suggestions how to get to the required commit hash?

Thx for your help,
kind regards

You could propagate the ${bamboo.repository.revision.number} variable by means of a secondary artifact and the Bamboo Variables task, roughly: 

  1. Dump the variable to a properties file via the Bamboo Script task in plans A and B, i.e. (from the top of my head) something like:
    • 'echo "plan1hash= $bamboo_repository_revision_number" >' for Bash
  2. Share the two property files as secondary artifacts with plan C
  3. Download  the secondary artifacts from plan A and B in plan C
  4. Inject new variables from the two property files in plan C with the Bamboo Variables task
  5. Use the two commit hashes by consuming the variables in your Artifactory upload
