    Combine with Project Variables add-on

    The Nested Variables add-on for Bamboo allows you to re-use global, project or plan variables. This is very valuable if you wish to allow Plan administrators to embed Global variables containing sensitive information.

    There is no limit to the nesting of variables. The add-on will continue to replace nested variables until it can no longer find a correct value. Take DRY to new levels with the Nested Variables add-on for Bamboo.

    The Nested Variables add-on can be combined with the Project Variables add-on, and is part of the Utility Belt add-on. If you are looking for simplifying your Bamboo administration, take a look at those add-ons as well!

    We are using this plug in for over a year now and it works well. We are planning to upgrade Bamboo to but the latest version is not certified for Bamboo 15.1.0. When will this add-on be certified for Bamboo 5.15.0?

    I can confirm that the add-on works for Bamboo 5.15.x and have updated the Atlassian Marketplace accordingly!

    Bamboo 5.10.x is not listed as supported yet. We cannot upgrade our Bamboo instance as we rely on this addon.

    Nested variables doesn't work for variables in deployment plans (environment) - for me completly unuseless
    Was this review helpful?YesNo

    Unfortunately it is not possible to provide support for deployment plans as the Bamboo API does not allow it. I will update the documentation to reflect this in order to avoid disappointments on raise false expectations.

    Paid-via-Atlassian pricing FAQ

    How does server add-on pricing work?

    Server products and add-ons are hosted on your servers. Licenses are perpetual and the purchase price include 12 months of maintenance (support and version updates).

    You can renew maintenance after 12 months at 50% of the current purchase price. You can upgrade the tier of your host product and add-on licenses at any time. Upgrade prices are calculated based on Atlassian's formula (view example).

    If add-on pricing changes after your initial purchase, there's a 60-day grandfathering period during which you can renew based on the old pricing.

    How do I determine my server pricing tier?

    The add-on tier should match the licensed user tier of the Atlassian host application. For example, if you have a Confluence Server license for 25 users, you should purchase the 25-user tier for add-ons. Even if fewer users want to use the add-on than your host application license, the two licenses should match exactly.

    Do you offer academic, community, or open-source licenses?

    For server add-ons, purchase and renewal is half-price if you have an academic license for your Atlassian host application. Server add-ons are always free for community and open-source licenses. Cloud add-ons do not have discounted or free licenses.

    For more details about qualifying for special licenses, see here.

    Can I extend my free trial?

    For server add-ons, you can extend your add-on trial up to 5 times - in other words, for up to six months. Extend your trial by generating a new evaluation license key from Atlassian Marketplace. Click Try it free and you'll be directed to generate a new license. Paste this license key into the add-on listing in UPM from your Atlassian host application, and you're all set.

    How can I buy add-ons for my legacy JIRA Server or Confluence Server license?

    If you own a legacy JIRA Server Unlimited (100+ users) or Confluence Server Unlimited (2000+ users) license purchased in 2012 or earlier, legacy add-on pricing is no longer available. You have two options for add-on purchasing:

    • Purchase the add-on at the non-legacy Unlimited (10000+ users) tier.
    • Renew your JIRA or Confluence license at a non-legacy tier, then purchase the add-on at the same tier.
