Bitbucket Pipeline fails saying that step is empty, null or missing

I'm trying to configure a Bitbucket pipeline to execute the SonarQube pipe, but Bitbucket complains that the pipeline step is empty, null or missing.

I've got SONAR_TOKEN defined as a project variable with the correct token.

Here's my current bitbucket-pipeline.yml file:

image: atlassian/default-image:2

clone:
  depth: full

definitions:
  caches:
    sonar: ~/.sonar/cache
  steps:
    - step: &sonarcloud
      name: Analyze on SonarCloud
      caches:
        - sonar
      script:
        - pipe: sonarsource/sonarcloud-scan:0.1.5
          variables:
            SONAR_TOKEN: ${SONAR_TOKEN}

pipelines:
  branches:
    '*':
      - step: *sonarcloud

Any ideas?

Found the issue.

The problem is that the step details in the definition area is incorrectly indented and is missing one extra indentation level.

The correct format for that YAML is:

image: atlassian/default-image:2

clone:
  depth: full

definitions:
  caches:
    sonar: ~/.sonar/cache
  steps:
    - step: &sonarcloud
        name: Analyze on SonarCloud
        caches:
          - sonar
        script:
          - pipe: sonarsource/sonarcloud-scan:0.1.5
            variables:
              SONAR_TOKEN: ${SONAR_TOKEN}

pipelines:
  branches:
    '*':
      - step: *sonarcloud
