How to version a build?

I have 2 questions,

  1. When a build is started, I would like to capture the date and time in certain format, create version number and pass it to my build script, For example, if a build is started Jan-1-2014 12:05:05, I would like my version to be "2.0.0.20140101_120505", how can I do that?
  2. In Bamboo dashboard, how can I diplay this instead of just build number?

  1. ${bamboo.buildTimeStamp}
  2. Not without changing the javascript

I did take a look at that variable, format is different thatn what I am looking for. Any idea how to change the format?

The computer's globalization format could be set, not sure if Bamboo uses that or not. You said you wanted to pass it into your build script so I figured you could reformat it.
