Defining plan variables

When configuring a plan, you may want to specify variables to be used in the build process. For details on how variables are used, see Bamboo variables.

Plan variables are one type of variable that is available to you. A plan variable is defined for one specific plan, and has the same value every time that plan is built. If you want to define a variable across all plans rather than a single plan, define a global variable as described in Defining global variables.

Plan variables can be accessed by using ${bamboo.varName}. Plan variables can also be overridden at runtime when running a manual build. For more information, see Running a plan build manually.

Before you begin:

  • Note that plan variables override global variables with the same name.

To define a plan variable:

  1. Click Dashboard, then the All Plans tab, then the name of the plan in the list, to get to the plan you want to edit.
  2. Choose Actions > Configure Plan.
  3. Click the Variables tab.
  4. Add, update or delete plan variables, as desired:
    • Click Add to add a new variable once you have entered the key and value for it.
    • Updates to existing rows will be saved as you move between cells in the table.
    • Click the cross icon to delete a variable. Bamboo will ask you to confirm deletion.
