Stan Zhou I'm New Here Jul 19, 2021

The bamboo deploy tasks:

variable name downtime_id 

value null



script location: inline

#!/usr/bin/env bash
start=$(date +%s)
end=$(date -d "+1 day" +%s)

echo $start
echo $end
echo ${bamboo.local_deploy_environment}
echo ${bamboo.DD_API_KEY_PASSWORD}
echo ${bamboo.DD_APP_KEY_PASSWORD}
echo ${bamboo.downtime_id}

{bamboo.downtime_id}=`curl --silent -X POST "" \
-H "Content-type: application/json" \
-d '{"scope": "environment-name:${bamboo.local_deploy_environment}","start":'"${start}"',"end":'"${end}"'}'| awk -F, '{print $19}'|awk -F: '{print $2}'`

echo ${bamboo.downtime_id}


got error message when deploy: bamboo.downtime_id=50005497: command not found

Hi @Stan Zhou ! Welcome to the community!

It seems to me that you would not need to have curly braces around bamboo.downtime_id when setting its value. Please make a test using it this way:


 Hope this helps!

Hi @Cristiano Mariano , thank you for your reply.

I know, the normal way access the variable without curly braces, had tried before it failed.


The way to solve the issue is using the Jinject Bamboo variables plugin.
