Getting Agent Hostname or IP address as a variable

Getting Agent Hostname or IP address as a variable 


We have 5 bamboo agents and bamboo server triggers the tests to one of the bamboo agent. 


Could we get the agent's hostname or IP as a variable in bamboo?

Eventually we want that variable as -Dhost=${bamboo.hostname} or something like that.

I don't see any such variable presently in Bamboo.

But, how about this idea:
Bamboo has this variable: "bamboo.agentId"

1. Use this variable to get the agent id (agent id is never changed)

2. This agent is configured in the file <agent-home>/bamboo-agent.cfg.xml with the parameter <id>1234</id>. This file has the other details as well which are name, agent uuid. Manually assign the bamboo global variable to have the hostname for each of these agents id's.

2. Have a script task to check for the "bamboo.agentId" and have something like case statement to get the hostname based on the agent id and then assign this hostname to a variable which can be used later as per the requirement. Something like:

case  ${bamboo.agentId}  in
                     export hostname=<globalvariable1>
           export hostname=<globalvariable2>
