Is there a way to use bamboo variables in requirement specification

I think similar needs have appeared before in the questions. But not exactly what I want and need. So I start this new question.

Basically, what I want is: I want to be able to reference bamboo variables in the build job requirement specification. This is because bamboo variable value can be changed in each customized build. I want to be able to farm the build job to a specific set of agents in a customized build run.

For example, each developer has his/her own set of agents running locally. When the developer run a customized build, he/she want to be farmed out to his/her own agents. Not others'. I don't want to have build plans for each developer. I want to have a generic build plan that when each developer runs it, he/she can set a bamboo variable to let the requirement changed to just match his/her own agents.


Is there a way to do it?

Thanks for any help.

Did you ever figure anything out about this?

Unfortunately no. I couldn't find a way to do it.

Ok. That's what a quick test here just now seemed to indicate but I figured I'd ask. This would be really nice. Copying an entire plan to do this manually is really not a good workaround.
