How do I get the filename of a shared artifact?

We have a plan which builds a tarball artifact that needs to be used in a later stage. The tarball filename depends on some numbers internal to the application source code. We can't calculate this name from Bamboo variables.

I need to untar the file and deploy the application to the server in a later stage in the plan, but I can't figure out how to get the artifact name into the deployment job. Since there is only one tarball artifact I tried using a wildcard with tar. This of course works in bash, but not from Bamboo.

I can't find any Bamboo variable that stores the name of the artifact.

How can I get the exact filename of a certain artifact so I can refer to it in a later stage?

You can't do it directly. You can download the artifact to a separate directory and assume everything under it is your artifact. Then just use script tasks to do whatever you need.
