How to get release id in bamboo


I have a deployment project with DEV/QA env and created releases in the project. Before deploying any build, I want to check if the release is approved.

Has anyone done this. Can you throw some light on how to achieve this.

I got the REST URL to find the status of any release using


This query required id and I am unable to find the ID for my release string (eg: 1.0.0-dev ). what i understood is release id is a unqiue id created for the deployment project / env and it is stored in database.

Any help is appreciated.

Hello @Subramanian Olagappan,

Open created release details at Bamboo UI and look at URL: deploy/viewDeploymentVersion.action?versionId=1440874497

There you can get release id for REST call

Hi Alex,

Thanks.. had this in mind. I was looking for a clean way to get this done.



What do you mean clean way?

You can call such REST calls

curl 'http://localhost:9087/bamboo/rest/api/latest/deploy/project/all' -u admin:admin -H "Accepts: application/json"

to get list of deployment projects and see what project id has each deployment project


curl 'http://localhost:9087/bamboo/rest/api/latest/deploy/project/{deploymentProjectId}/versions' -u admin:admin -H "Accepts: application/json"

to get list of versions

hi Alex/Subramanian,

I have the same requirement. In my opinion, what subramanian wanted was for next release , we could have used bamboo environment variable for getting the release versionId. I am not sure whether {deploymentProjectId} gets the versionId value at runtime.
