manualBuildTriggerReason.username doesnt seem to work

I have tried passing ${bamboo.manualBuildTriggerReason.username} as part of a string in an argument field for a command task, and it isnt being interpolated. All of the other variables work great... but this one doesnt, and I know it is in the documentation as being manualBuildTriggerReason.username -- and i know that i need to put bamboo. in front, and enclose it ins ${}.

This is for a manually triggered build, so I expected that it would work. What am I doing wrong?

Can you please try ${bamboo.ManualBuildTriggerReason.userName} ? Seems to me we have incosistency between the code and the documentation....

Forgot to mention version is 3.4.4

Had the same problem and "bamboo.ManualBuildTriggerReason.userName" did the trick. thank you Stefan. Please update your documentation here.

done. (I mean - doc page updated)
