How to get the bamboo build branch name now in v6.10.2?

Given the fix shortPlanName contains branch name for plan branches.


This variable no longer prints out the bamboo plan branch name. This fix i support however there does not appear to be a directory replacement. How do we now get the build branch name?


Note, I know we can use the vsc branch name but in the case where the build branch was set up manually and does not reflect the vsc branch name, there does not appear to be an alternative?

Am i missing something?

Hi @Simon Hooper

You are correct, after some tests, I realized that we don't have a variable to provide such information directly.

I've created a feature request to add a new variable for this:

We only have a partial workaround for a Linux (Unix like) script task.

bamboo_planBranchName = ${bamboo_planName##* - }

Please let me know your comments on this.

Thanks @Daniel Santos , I left a comment and voted up this issue (BAM-20668).

Thank you for voting on that feature request.
Have a good one!
