Environment variables in bamboo

Abhi Vaishnav Aug 20, 2012

Hi,

Quick question about how environment variables work in bamboo.

Here is our setup:

A task that runs a command gmake unitTest. In the Bamboo GUI, we have setup PATH=<path to="" a="" jvm=""> ;${system.Path};

In our makefile, we set PATH=<path to="" openssl=""> ;%PATH%.

My question is this: In our makefile, does %PATH% evaluate to the PATH that Bamboo sets(that is: PATH=<path to="" a="" jvm=""> ;${system.Path};) or does it evaluate to the PATH default to the system?

This unknown behavior is causing unit test failures and this is about the only behavior I am unsure about that could be causing the unit test failures.

Hi Abhi

Did you try to check and set the variable settings in the Bamboo settings using the default feature? Following you can check the related doc:
