Unable to set local vars from plan vars in script


When I define anypoint_username=MyUserName as a Project variable,
I am not able to access it in a script task as documented in:

if [ -z "${bamboo.anypoint_username}" ]; then
echo "bamboo.anypoint_username not found, please set global variable."

Hello @Max van den Berk

Welcome to Atlassian Community!

To use variables in Bash, your need to call them differently:

Using variables in bash

Bamboo variables are exported as bash shell variables. All full stops (periods) are converted to underscores. For example, the variable is $bamboo_my_variable in bash. This is related to File Script tasks (not Inline Script tasks).
