Introducing Project specific variables for Atlassian Bamboo

Reusable variables for all plans in your Project

Same notation as Global or Plan variables

No Administrator rights required

Create re-usable variables on the Project level that are only available to the plans within that project.

You can use them the same way as Global or Plan variables within your tasks with the ${bamboo.varName} notation you already know. For use in repositories definitions, use the ${bamboo.PROJECTKEY.varName} notation.

Manage variables from the Project overview page. No need for special elevated privileges that give you to much access just for maintaining variables. Project administrators can now control their own Project Variables.

More details

With Project Variables you can manage variables for Projects, which is in between the existing Global or Plan level. These variables are available to all plans that are part of the project.

Like Global and Plan variables, the Project Variables can be used the same notation of ${bamboo.varName} you already know.

The Project Variables add-on will add the variable to the Global Variables list with the Project Key as a prefix. Because of this, the variable is also available with the ${bamboo.PROJECTKEY.varName} notation for use in repository URL's or other non-tasks related variable substitutions.

To manage the Project Variables, use the new "Configure" button that is added in the upper-right corner of the Project overview page.

Because Project Variables are a subset of the Global Variables, Bamboo Administrators still have the ability to adjust all Project Variables from the Global Variables configuration screen in the Bamboo administration interface.

Paid-via-Atlassian pricing FAQ

How do upgrades and renewals work?

You can upgrade your Atlassian host product license to increase the user tier for add-on licenses any time. Upgrade prices are calculated based on Atlassian's formula, and are automatically reflected in your cart. View an example of the JIRA upgrade price matrix here.

Add-on licences for downloaded Atlassian products are perpetual. Your original purchase includes 12 months of maintenance. To continue receiving upgrades and support after the initial 12 months, you can renew your maintenance for 50% of the original purchase price. You can purchase maintenance for up to 36 additional months at any time.

OnDemand add-on subscriptions renew each month and can be canceled any time.

How do I determine my pricing tier?

Choose the same user tier you pay for in the Atlassian host application. For example, if you have a JIRA download license for 25 users, you should purchase this tier.

Even if fewer users want to use the add-on than your host application license, the two licenses should match exactly.

What's the difference between OnDemand and download pricing?

Just like your Atlassian host application, there are two pricing models. Pick the model that matches your Atlassian product, and the same rules apply:

Subscriptions renew every month
Add-ons and instances are hosted by Atlassian
Licenses last forever, support and upgrades last for 12 months
Instances and add-ons are hosted on your servers
Do you offer academic, community, or open-source licenses?

Add-on purchase and renewal is half-price if you have an academic license for your Atlassian host application.

Add-ons are always free for community and open-source licenses.

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

Do you offer enterprise pricing?

Choose enterprise pricing if your Atlassian host application is billed for enterprise licenses.

Enterprise pricing includes 24/7 phone and email support, access to training through Atlassian University, and other perks. Learn more.

Can I extend my free trial?

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 Free Trial and you'll be directed to generate a license at MyAtlassian. Paste this license key into the add-on listing in UPM from your Atlassian host application, and you're all set.

Alternatively, if you remove your expiring trial license from your Atlassian host application, you can re-add it back for another free trial.

What are legacy pricing tiers?

If you bought your Atlassian host application during or before February 2012, you qualify for legacy pricing tiers.

  • JIRA tiers are 10, 25, 50, and 100 users. The legacy unlimited tier was 100+ users.
  • The Confluence legacy tiers are 10, 25, 50, 100, 500, and 2000 users. The unlimited legacy tier was 2000+ users.
  • There are no enterprise licenses prior to and including February 2012.
