Setting the version (via the API) doesn't update the environment variable

As part of my build process I calculate and set the version number via a post to the build agent API.

This works in terms of setting the version number shown in the history but it doesn't appear to update the environment variable meaning I have to get slightly creative to pass the value to a later step in the process (I need a playground to see how all this stuff interacts!)

    Still doesn't assuming my incantation to create an artifact is right:

      - path: publish
        name: appveyor.$(APPVEYOR_VERSION_NUMBER)

    As a workaround you can just set this variable in the same place where you call Build API, kind of:

    $env:APPVEYOR_VERSION_NUMBER = 'version'
