Variables for deployment environments

Deployment variables

Bamboo manages a number of standard reserved variables that are available when deploying a project. 

Variables later in the following list override the previous ones in case of repeating names:

  • global variables
  • release variables as defined below
  • user variables defined at environment level
  • the autogenerated variables in the following table:
Variable Description
bamboo.agentId The id of the agent that the deployment is executed on.
bamboo.agentWorkingDirectory The path to the working directory on the agent. This is not the same as the Bamboo working directory. The path to the working directory for Bamboo. This is used by both the build plan and the deployment project.
bamboo.deploy.environment The name of the environment that the release is to be deployed to.
bamboo.deploy.project The name of the deployment project.
bamboo.deploy.rollback True if the release being deployed is older than the release being replaced.



The name of the release that is being deployed. Either .release or .version can be used - both return the name of the release being deployed.



The name of the release that is being replaced (if available). Either .release or .version can be used - both return the name of the release being replaced.
bamboo.resultsUrl The URL to the screen in Bamboo that dispays build results.

For Bamboo variables to do with build plans, and releases, see Bamboo variables.
