Hi Beck,

When you say "artifact name based on a variable", Are you talking about the file itself or use variables in the artifact definition page?

Artifact file:

As variables will be available at agent's environment while the build is running, you can use them in your tasks to produce your artifacts.

Very simple example:

If you want to create a "planKey-buildNumber.txt" file and write "hello world" into it, you just need to add a script task with the following inline script:

echo hello World > ${bamboo.planKey}-${bamboo.buildNumber}.txt

The same syntax can be used anywhere inside your build.

You will find more examples in the "Bamboo variables" documentation.

Artifact Definition:

Yes, you can use variables at the artifact definition fields, the only thing that you must pay attention is to do not use Build-specific variables (like ${bamboo.buildNumber}) in the "copy pattern" field, as these variable are evaluated by Bamboo dynamically at build time, you may face problems if you decide to use the artifact in another plan and/or deployment.

Please let me know if this answers your question.
