Is it possible to create a custom build parameters provider?

Is it possible for a plugin to provider a custom build parameter type?

For example, let's a build uses a parameter like so: %myplugin.key%. I want my plugin to "intercept" when that gets resolved and populate it using my own logic.

Similarly, I would also want to intercept when the parameter is written to using the ##teamcity things.

Is this or something like it possible?

Sorry for huge delay, see my answer below if it is still actual.

As to parameters provider, yes, this is possible. Please have a look at jetbrains.buildServer.serverSide.parameters.BuildParametersProvider extension. You can find examples of it's implementation in Groovy plugin:

As to intercepting ##teamcity, I suppose you'd like to add your own custom service message, right? If you want to do something with this service message on the server side, have a look at jetbrains.buildServer.messages.serviceMessages.ServiceMessageTranslator extension. Since 10.0 you can also intercept messages on the agent side, see: jetbrains.buildServer.agent.messages.BuildMessagesTranslator
