Passing information between stages

Hi all,

In bamboo, beside artifacts, we need to share information between stages e.g. package name. These information are generated by a specific stage and should be passed to another stage.

What is the best way to handle this situation? Is there a way to set the value for a plan variable from a job so it's possible to use it in a job from another stage?

You can share files between stages - using the 'shared artifacts' feature.

It should be easy to share any kind of information in this way.

Does this apply if jobs runs on different agents? To me this seems to be a named reference to a file on filesystem where job A runs. Job B doesn't nessesary run on same agent.

Yes, it works. Bamboo makes sure that the file is available no matter where/when the jobs were run.

All 'Shared Artifacts' are stored on the server, not on the agents. After your build runs, any artifacts set as 'shared' get sent back to the server and stored in the server's artifact folder.

What VCS system are you using? You could accomplish the same by applying a 'tag' or 'label' to a specific file and committing the change.

Or in Subversion, you can set svn:properties.
