Is there a Bamboo variable which indicates the trigger type?

Now that a build can be triggered for multiple reasons, I'd like to use that information. For instance, I would like to only run the sonar analysis on the nightly/scheduled build, not on the builds triggered by other builds or by checkins.

I believe the answer is that there is no Bamboo variable to indicate the reason the build was triggered. I have filed BAM-13030 requesting this feature.

Yeap great that you already raised a request for that :)

Hmm I can`t seem to find a variable to retrive that. The only vailable variable is to retrieve the person who triggered a manual build using the variable bamboo.ManualBuildTriggerReason.userName

I am kind of believeing you can retireve this info using rest API call as explained in http://docs.atlassian.com/bamboo/REST/4.0/#idp108720

[I need to scrap this answer altogether, turns out my tests were flawed and my workaround did not work...]
