Passing Argument to Bamboo Spec runner


I am trying to pass an argument to the bamboo spec.
Unfortunately, my arguments are not passed to my planSpec. 

I tried like this. But, its not passing the arguments to the PlanSpec.
mvn -Ppublish-specs -Dbamboo.specs.log.level=DEBUG -Dexec.args="myArg1 myArg2"

Thanks and Regards!!!
Ananth Francis.

As Specs processing was designed to be executed at Bamboo Server it doesn't propagate any args to be as safe as possible from security point of view.

Thanks Alexey for the answer.
We would like to run from different server in our case and currently we are setting couple of environment variables and reading those env in the specs but it looks like it may not be a great idea to do.

If you use Bamboo Specs at repository and by different servers you mean Bamboo Server, then look at which allows you to get server name at Specs processing runtime.


We use it internally to setup different plans at different Bamboo Servers but same source code repository
