Update bamboo project variable in a task

I have a project variable to store an AWS access key. After rotate access key in task, I want to update the project variable with the new access key, is it possible? The variable is used in deployment projects to access to AWS resources.

Plan execution can't update Project variable

Thanks the answer.

Is there any way to update Project variables in AWS Lambda?

There's no REST API for project variable update available yet, but you can craft curl command to update it with multiform HTTP POST request

Thanks @Alexey Chystoprudov
I tried to find about the multiform HTTP POST request  but I counts't do it.
Could you give the information of multiform HTTP POST request to update?

Try something like this

curl -u user:password 'http://BAMBOO_URL/project/admin/ajax/updateProjectVariable.action?projectKey=PRJKEY' \
  -H 'x-atlassian-token: no-check' \
  -H 'content-type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded; charset=UTF-8' \
  --data-raw ‘variableId=VARIABLE_ID&variableKey=myvar&variableValue=test2&bamboo.successReturnMode=json&confirm=true'

Thanks, @Alexey Chystoprudov,

Could I use a personal access token instead of using -u user:password?

Unfortunately PAT doesn't work for non REST calls. 

By the way this feature is available by REST API since 8.1.1, see
