How to populate dbo.__MigrationoLog.release_version column via powershell?

From a previous post, I learned that we should be able to populate the release_version column of the dbo.__MigrationLog.  "If deploying via PowerShell, set the $ReleaseVersion variable to populate this column".  I am using Bamboo and have a deployment package that uses a powershell script to deploy a release using the Use-DatabaseReleaseArtifact powershell cmdlet.  I set the $ReleaseVersion variable as suggested, but still not seeing the column populated in the __MigrationLog table.

    Actually I am just now going down the path of using the powershell cmdlets. looks like it is set in the New-DatabaseReleaseArtifact  -SqlCmdVariables switch. Example: 

    $SqlCmdVariables = @{ReleaseVersion = $IterationNumber;}
    $DBConnection = New-DatabaseConnection -ServerInstance $EAMDBServer -Database $PQDBName
    $DBUpdate = New-DatabaseReleaseArtifact -Source $DBDeployFile -Target $DBConnection -SqlCmdVariables $SqlCmdVariables
    Use-DatabaseReleaseArtifact $DBUpdate -DeployTo $DBConnection

    Hi, thank you for your forum post.

    Is there any warning message or log entry during deployment to indicate why this has not been set?

    No, I'm not seeing a warning or error in the deployment log.  Here's the PS code for the inline PS Script task in my Bamboo deployment project:

    Not sure if this helps as I am not using Bamboo, just using a powershell script with the deployment file produced from the build at this time.

    See this doco under: Deploying from PowerShell

    Just set the $ReleaseVersion variable, Example:
    & { $DatabaseServer = $EAMDBServer; $ReleaseVersion = $IterationNumber; &$DBDeployFile }
