How do you get overwritten parameters for a Bamboo build via REST?

I can see that there is a section labeled "Overwritten parameters" on a Bamboo build summary page when someone ran it with the "Run Customized" option. Can I get the overwritten parameters using Bamboo's REST API when querying build results?

Hello Brent,

I think you can't get overwritten parameters using REST API yet. Though I'd say it shouldn't be hard to add such functionality into Bamboo. Brent, in case no other answer appear here, can I ask you to raise an issue on (and ping me up, for example by leaving a comment here)?


I know this is highly unorthodox and potentially dangerous, but is there a table I can look at in the Bamboo database that shows the overwritten variables for a build? I looked at the usual suspects like BUILDRESULTSSUMMARY and couldn't find anything. But maybe that information is there, but just burried or not in an obvious column.

It's stored in a separate table, the VARIABLE_SUBSTITUTION table. But pls, if somebody from Atlassian asks I hadn't told you that, OK?
