How to trigger a build and pass in a bamboo global variable



We have some builds that finish up and are checked into svn with a version (  We would like to trigger a deploy of that build by calling the deploy project and setting the deploy.buildnumber variable to

Is there a way to trigger a deploy with RESTful API passing in the deploy.buildnumber= value?


I am able to do this with teamcity but cant figure out how to do this with Bamboo.


We tried to have the deploy part of the build project and created a deploy stage but that has problems as well based on Bamboo pulling the repositories before it executes the various jobs in the stages.


Please dont answer about generic triggering of other builds... it has to involve passing the deploy.buildnumber to the other deploy project.


Thanks in advance.

I think my answer to your other question applies here:

That is what I did.  I pushed the full release number ( to a buildnumber.txt file, then shared it, did an artifact download on the dependent deploy project and read in the new buildnumber to deploy.
