Unable to update bamboo plan variable using REST API?


I have seen from Bamboo documentation and few discussion forums that Bamboo build plan can be parameterized using REST API. I have tried with the below URL but getting 405 Method Not allowed exception. Is it because of access issues?

https://<HostName>/rest/api/latest/queue/<Build Key>?executeAllStages=true&bamboo.variable.myVariable=20

There is another URL which is triggering the build properly but plan variables are not getting updated based on the parameters.



Is there any mistake in the approach? myVariable is already defined in the Bamboo variables but it is not getting updated in the task.

Hello @Deepak,

Please, make sure of running a POST request and the user must have permissions to trigger the build:

curl -k -u USERNAME:PASSWORD -X POST -d 'bamboo.myVariable=cURL' 'BAMBOO_BASE_URL/rest/api/latest/queue/PROJ-PLAN'

In the example above, having myVariable defined as Plan or Global variable.

Kind regards,


Thanks @rsperafico, issue is resolved now. I haven't used the curl but tried the above mentioned URL using POST. Initially I was using GET and without executeAllStages=true condition. When I modified the URL and tried POST, it started working.
