    Can you update a local property from the output of a command?

      Hi all,


      Is it possible to update a property in a blpackage external command based on the output of a command?

      Take the very simple example of determining the host using "uname -n" and then setting a local property MYHOST so that this can persist past this blpackage step. (Yes, I know there is a TARGET.HOST but this is just my example!).


      I've looked at using blcli to do this but it doesn't really look possible and I'm not sure that it would even affect the job once it's running anyways.

      This would be very useful in so many ways.


      Kind regards,
