Hello Pushkar,

Thank you for your inquire.

Please, find below how to trigger a build (with overwrite variable or creating variable) using POSTMAN:



Overwrite variable "bamboo.myVar"


In PROJ-PLAN under "Plan configuration >> Variables", there is the following variable defined:


When running POSTMAN, the variable's value will be overwritten to "POSTMAN"

command	16-Dec-2015 12:50:02	Substituting variable: ${bamboo.myVar} with POSTMAN


Create variable "bamboo.variable.createdVar"


When running POSTMAN, the variable "createdVar" will be created.

command	16-Dec-2015 13:08:02	Substituting variable: ${bamboo.createdVar} with POSTMAN

If you find this answer useful, I would kindly ask you to accept it so the same will be visible to others who might be facing the same issue you have inquired.

Thank you for your understanding.

Kind regards,

Thank you so much Raefel that worked for me, but I did bamboo.variable.variable_name then it worked with bamboo.variable_name it was creating a new metadata.And I will really appreciate if you can send me simple json i.e. without body type as X-www-form-urlencoded

Pushkar, I'll outline the steps you need to take to send the POST request using JSON instead of X-www-form-urlencoded below. Following the same steps that Rafael already mentioned, you just have to make a few modifications: 1. In the second screenshot, in the "Headers" tab. Add the following Header: Content-Type and the following Value: application/json. 2. In the third screenshot, in the "Body" tab. Select the raw option and from the drop-down button select JSON (application/json). 3. Inside the script body, use the following code to override an existing variable: { "bamboo.myVar":["POSTMAN"] } OR use the following to add/create a new variable: { "bamboo.variable.createdVar":["POSTMAN"] } Hope this helps.

Thanks a lot Bruno , that's what i required

hey Bruno it worked for me but can you please tell me why it is in [] I mean is it a multi -value stuff

Hello Pushkar, It has been implemented (source-code) that way.
