Using a build variable as the Branch name of a Repository

I have a multi-repository build for which I'm trying to setup plan branches.

Until https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/BAM-11544 is implemented, this is going to be somewhat difficult. However, it has been suggested before to use a build variable to "parameterize" the branch names of all non-default repositories in a build plan.

I have tried using this approach by using ${bamboo.repository.branch.name} in the Branch field of the Repository configuration of all non-default repositories in my build plan. Unfortunately, this is giving me the following error:

(java.lang.RuntimeException : com.atlassian.bamboo.repository.InvalidRepositoryException: Cannot determine head revision of 'ssh://9a161dbd-6f8b-4af6-ba39-8d4a883bffea@127.0.0.1:56487/pscom.git' on branch '${bamboo.repository.branch.name}'. Branch has probably been removed.)

Any idea how I can make this work?

Thanks,

David

Hi,

I'm afraid you've found a bug. This variable is set too late in the build process to be useful as workaround to BAM-11544.

Please vote on this bug report: https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/BAM-12900

It will work if you define your own plan variable, but sadly, this requires you to override it manually on each branch.

Is there any solution to this problem? I am still getting the same error
