Cannot access TestLink environment variables within Jenkins build

      I'm configuring my first Jenkins / TestLink job. I don't seem to have access to any of the TestLink environment variables. I have pared down my Jenkins job to the following two statements under Build / Invoke TestLink / Test Execution / Single Build Steps / Execute Shell:

      echo "Test plan name is: $TESTLINK_TESTPLAN_NAME"
      echo "Build number is: $BUILD_NUMBER"

      The Jenkins console output is as follows:

      Started by user lisas
      Building in workspace /var/lib/jenkins/jobs/Website-Linkchecker-TestLink-integration/workspace
      Preparing TestLink client API.
      Using TestLink URL: http://localhost/testlink/lib/api/xmlrpc.php

      Found 1 automated test cases in TestLink.

      Sorting automated test cases by TestLink test plan execution order.

      Executing single Build Steps.

      [workspace] $ /bin/sh -xe /tmp/hudson8927570372825500742.sh
      + echo Test plan name is:
      Test plan name is:
      + echo Build number is: 8
      Build number is: 8
      Executing iterative Build Steps.

      Looking for the test results of TestLink test cases.

      Found 0 test result(s).

      Finished: SUCCESS

      As you can see, the $BUILD_NUMBER environment variable is translated as expected. The $TESTLINK_TESTPLAN_NAME environment variable is not.

      Any hints as to what might have gone wrong?
