This is what you cannot do:

# in a Script task
${bamboo.myGlobalVariable} = 'new value'
${bamboo.myPlanVariable} = 'new value'

This is what you can do:

  • Running a plan build manually, by running a customised build
  • running a cURL command to run a particular build overwriting a Global/Plan variable

    curl -u USERNAME:PASSWORD -X POST -d 'bamboo.yourVariable=newValue' 'http://localhost:8085/rest/api/latest/queue/PROJ-PLAN'

    The above will trigger a build 'PROJ-PLAN' and will overwrite the variable 'yourVariable' with 'newValue'.

  • Injecting Bamboo Variables

Kind regards,

Yes it is possible but IMO you should not do it. This can easily lead to chaos in your build configuration.

Maybe you should look at which handles this problem elegantly and you can limit the scope of visible change just for the scope of the job execution.
