    Extract result variables from Text files and XML files in your project for your Bamboo build plan

    Extract result variables from Text files and XML files in your project for your Bamboo build plan

    Provides two addition tasks

    Configure settings for Variable Extraction

    Use extracted variables in Deployment Plans

    The tasks "Text Variable Extractor" and "XML Variable Extractor" are available for your build plan.

    You can configure which file to query for which expression and where to store the result.

    You can use the extracted values (e.g. version numbers) in your build plan and deployment plan and name your releases according to the extracted version variable!

    More details

    This Plugin provides two new build tasks: "Text Variable Extractor" and "XML Variable Extractor".

    In both tasks you can define a file that should be searched for a configuration value, and a variable name where the result should be stored in your job. The variable can then be used in later step of your build and/or deployment plan, e.g. to define the generated release version.

    In the task "Text Variable Extractor" you can specify a regular expression which should be searched for in the given file. The regular expression should contain exactly 1 group. The content of this matching group will be the value of the variable, if the expression matches. Only the first match will be used.

    In the task "XML Variable Extractor" the file will be parsed as XML file. The given XPath expression will then be used to determine the String value of the variable.

    If the extraction fails (e.g. expression not found or file not found) you can decide if you want the build to fail or use a default value.
