Found it :)...

First: in order to get the uuid of your repository variables you can call this:

curl --user "$USER_NAME":"$PASSWORD" '{username}/{repo_slug}/pipelines_config/variables/' -H 'Content-Type: application/json'

- USER_NAME -> your user name from your profile

- PASSWORD -> You can create an App Password from here to avoid using your own password

- username & repo_slug -> from your repository url

* This will return all your variables with their uuid

Second: Pick the uuid you want and use this to update it value:

curl -vX PUT -u "$USER_NAME":"$PASSWORD" --url '{username}/{repo_slug}/pipelines_config/variables/%7Bvariable_uuid%7D' -H 'Content-Type:application/json' -d "{\"value\":\"{new_value}\", \"key\":\"{variable_name}\"}"

Note: Keep the %7B & %7D in the 'variable_uuid' section in the url, as they will be decoded to { & } which are required for the request to work

It's in the settings, but I'm wondering why you want it.  Of what use is it?

Can't see it.... I want to update the variable from api call using curl

You don't need the uuid to use curl against a repository.

Could you explain what you're really trying to do?

I created a repository variable for my workspace pipeline, and I want to update this variable using a script in one of the pipeline steps. But in order to change a repository variable I need to know its uuid first
