[Qbs] Can't find variable when using custom property

I'm trying to do something like this:

import qbs
Rule {
    property var myProperty: "test"

    outputArtifacts: {

qbs can't find "myProperty" in the line trying to print it, saying
ReferenceError: Can't find variable: myProperty

I've tried setting an id to the Rule item and using that, doesn't work. How
can I access properties like this from within the Rule item? This does not
seem to work well in general in qbs, except when defining a property in a
"Product" item.

My use-case here is that in another Product I plan to do this:
import "myrule.qbs" as MyRule
MyRule { myProperty: "1" }
MyRule { myProperty: "2" }
MyRule { myProperty: "3" }
MyRule { myProperty: "etc" }
