To use Bamboo Customized Plan variables in pom.xml

I have 3 modules in my Project and 3 testng files for which different tests should invoke. I want to choose testng_ModuleName.xml as per Bamboo variable (bamboo.module=ModuleName) value while running the customized plan in Bamboo. In pom.xml , ${bambooModule}  is used as below:


  Maven goal in Bamboo job:

test -DbambooModule=testng_${bamboo.module}.xml


It gives below error:

\bamboo-home\xml-data\build-dir\JOB1\ProjectName\testng_${bamboo.module}.xml is not a valid file


Not sure where i'm wrong. Can anyone please help.

Hi @Vandana Arora,

Thank you for your inquire.

Here is an example where artifactId is receiving a Bamboo Variable

<project xmlns="" xmlns:xsi=""

Whereas in the build log you would find:

...bamboo_planRepository_name=Maven 3.x\nbamboo_buildNumber=1...

Please, notice the _ (underscore) used instead of . (dot) when calling the variable.

Kind regards,


Thanks for your Reply @rsperafico.. it worked for me now.

I have updated pom.xml as:


and the maven goal as:

 -Dbamboo_module=${bamboo.module} test

and my Build variable is :

module= some value
