Avoid duplicating deployment code for two branches in BitBucket pipelines

basvdijk I'm New Here Apr 29, 2021

I have the following BitBucket pipeline script which preserves some files, does deployment and restores the files.

As shown this applies to the master branch. For the development branch I need exactly the same script. The only difference is that deployment: production will become deployment: development since I need other environment variables, set in BitBucket.

I've looked into for YAML anchors to make this script as a function. But couldn't get it to work.

Is there a way to avoid this part being copied for the development branch?

- step:
name: Deployment to production
deployment: production
trigger: manual
- echo "Deploying to prod..."
- pipe: atlassian/scp-deploy:1.0.1
REMOTE_PATH: '~/public/prod'
LOCAL_PATH: 'dist/*'

Hi @basvdijk ,

Thank you for your question!

We have tested examples provided in the  YAML anchors guide and overrides works good, where variable NAME setup in different deployments (test, development, production):

- step: &build-test
name: Build and test
- echo "Build and test"

- step: &deploy
name: Deploy
deployment: test
- echo "Hello ${NAME}"

- step: *build-test
- step: *deploy
- step:
<<: *deploy
name: Deploy development
deployment: development

- step: *build-test
- step:
<<: *deploy
name: Deploy Test
- step:
<<: *deploy
deployment: production
trigger: manual


It could be useful to check names for your deployments, because by default it starts with capital letter but you use small instead: Test vs test, Production vs production.

It would be nice if you provide us with more details to help you.
