"Single daily build" trigger with custom variable

Hi all!

We have a plan with a required variable - everyone who runs the plan has to specify it manually using "Run customised..." -> "Override a variable".

Now I want to add two "Single daily build" triggers:

  1. Triggers everyday at 4am with this variable overridden with value "X"

  2. Triggers everyday at 6am with this variable overridden with value "Y"

Is there a way to do it? Seems that triggers don't know anything about variables.

Hi @Anton_Egorov

You won't be able to use Bamboo triggers to achieve this, as you already know.

What you can do instead is to configure your server cron or even create a special plan in Bamboo that will serve as your cron to call the following REST API:

curl --user <USER>:<PASSWORD> --data "bamboo.variable=value" -X POST <BAMBOO-URL>/rest/api/latest/queue/<PLAN-KEY>

Using this endpoint you are able to start a build with the specified variable you want.

In case you want to create a special build in Bamboo for that, then you will need to create a script task to check the time and decide whether the variable to be passed is X or Y.

I hope that helps.
