Is it possible to pass different variables to different jobs in a stage?

No. Bamboo offers global and plan variables. Maybe you can simply create another plan?

The answer from Krystian is not entirely true. I do this all day everyday.

 

I create a variable in job1 in stage1, populate that variable, in job1, echo its contents to a text file. Save that text file in job1 in a tar file. I share that tar file in stage1 as an artifact, and make it available to all stages downstream. 

 

The stages downstream untar that tar, cat the file, populate a new VAR with its contents, and suddenly you've shared a VAR between jobs and stages. 

For the record, with Bamboo 5.7 and later there's a slightly easier method: Variable Inject Task has an option to create a 'result' variable(s), which does the same thing, but without need to play with the artifacts.

AWESOME good to know I'll take look into this new feature!!!
