Hi Ravee,

You are most welcome and happy evaluating Bamboo :).

What you want to acheive is not possible out of the box unless if you will want to extend the specific builder yourself to add a select list. This could be a little bit demanding but I suggest you try adding multiple task for each of the environment or targets. That is the beauty of Bamboo where you can have a job with multiple tasks each doing a specified function.

Regarding the inject plugin, yes that seems to be broken but I have a copy you can download from



Thanks again Sultan, for your suggestions

Hi Raveendran,

The svn branch and other properties are access at build time using the,+plan+or+build-specific+variables which is similar to the concept of customfield in JIRA.

If those variables are not enough for you, you can use the inject bamboo variable task plugin to define custom variables that can be injected and used during build

Hope that answers your question.



Thanks Sultan, Your suggestion really helped me to move ahead.

Could you help me how to achieve below scenarios in bamboo pls

1. Since I was coming from hudson/jenkins background and I"m new to Bamboo...I was trying to define a custom string field with drop down list for...

a. Environments (dev, tst, uat, etc)

b. Target actions (upload, package, deploy, etc)

c. Artifacts release details (release # or build date, etc)

However I was able to follow your suggestion to "define variables"...and by selecting "build customized" option. So when it pop ups for value, I choose overrride and enter the value I need. this works fine (thanks again). I started liking bamboo and I"m sure bamboo will have similiar features

2. I was not able to download Inject bamboo variable task plugin. Could you please provide me a link or attach the jar file pls? (I downloaded from thrid party link, but it seems to be a corrupted one)
