How to use variables in a repository's file pattern field


As part of a build, I have configured bamboo to check out our source from a git repository.  The git repo contains a number of different services, all stored in different subdirectories (structure ./{service-name}).  For the sake of this question, lets use a service called 'my-service' as an example.  Currently the repository is configured to only include files in `^my-service/.*` (the 'File Pattern' in the advanced options of the repository configuration).  However, I'd like to move the 'my-service/' value to a plan variable called `SERVICE_SOURCE_PATH`.

I've tried using the value `^${bamboo.SERVICE_SOURCE_PATH}.*`.  However, this is not accepted as a valid regular expression.  The user at tried escaping the value, but it seems it was just taken literally.

Does anybody know whether it is possible to use a plan variable in the repository configuration's File Pattern field?  And if so, the correct syntax?

This field doesn't support variables

Thanks for the fast response, Alexey.  Do you know if there are plans to add support for variables in this field?  I think it would be very useful.

I don't think we will implement it soon. You can watch and vote on

Thanks for that.  I'll add my vote smile
