How to overwrite variables in a file with Bamboo variables

I have a config file in my project

environment: development
host: localhost
prefix: ${bamboo.agentId}
mainDatabaseSuffix: main
mainDatabaseUsername: ${bamboo.agentId}_main
password: password localhost

As part of the build I copy this file, and would like to overwrite the values with bamboo parameters. How do I go about this?


I have tried 

sed 's/${bamboo.agentId}/${bamboo.agentId}/g' src/Resources/config/parameters.yml


sed 's/${bamboo.agentId}/$bamboo_agentId/g' src/Resources/config/parameters.yml

Also replacing the variable in the file with some placeholder

sed 's/BAMBOO_AGENTID/${bamboo.agentId}/g' src/Resources/config/parameters.yml

 Also heaps of other methods to escape etc but no success. Is there a way to replace all the variables in a file using bamboo rather than sed? If not, any tips on using sed for this?


Thanks in advance
