How do I use a custom string as the version number in the release name of deployment?

We build binaries where the version is specified in a header file. We also have a command line tool that can extract the version string from a built binary. What is the easiest way to our custom version string as the release name of a deployment?

During the build:

1. Save extracted version string to a temporary java properties file.

2. Use Variable Inject Task to read properties from the file into Bamboo variables. Set the variable Scope to 'result'.

In your deployment project simply reference the variable in 'release naming' configuration. Sth like ${bamboo.inject.myVersion}

This is exactly what I've come up with. Many Thanks, Lars
