Update-AppveyorBuild equivalent for macOS

I'm currently using a windows VM to build, and running a powershell command

Update-AppveyorBuild -Version "$(Get-Date -format yyyy.M).$env:appveyor_build_number"

I'd like to switch over to macos and I wonder if there's an equivalent `sh` command that I can run?

    You can use the same PowerShell code in Linux builds.

    Alternatively, you can use appveyor CLI as shown here: https://www.appveyor.com/docs/build-worker-api/#command-line-6

    Thank you for that answer, Will the build number variable be the same (hoping to know without having to burn a build number to test).


    `appveyor UpdateBuild -Version "${$(date '+%Y.%m')}.${$appveyor_build_number}"`

    Must be CAPS_LOCK on Linux as their names are case-sensitive.
