How do I access bamboo environment secret variable inside python script?

I have defined a global bamboo secret variable and I am using it inside my python script like this:

my_var = os.environ['bamboo.my_environment_secret']

It's returning None.

I have defined a global variable named my_environment_secret in Bamboo. The way this script is executed, I can't pass any parameters from command line. So it has to be accessed directly inside the script.

Since python doesn't accept '.' as  valid character in variable names, i tried replacing '.' with '_' ( underscore) and that seemed to have done the trick.

Hi @Subhi Andrews,

I have never tried calling a variable directly from a script (I'm usually passing it as a parameter).  However, the syntax I always use when passing it as a parameter is: '${bamboo.my_environment_secret}'

Which you can see is how Atlassian recommends you use it in the documentation here:

I hope that helps!
