Defining Conditional Steps

I want to run some steps only in particular cases.

My expectation would be like:

- step:
   name: some conditional step
     - echo "run only if the condition is true"
   when: <some condition>

Hi @Sascha_Mowtschan

We don't have such configuration to set special conditions for a build to happen. 
Would you mind sharing what type of conditions you would test in the when clause?
Depending on what you share for those conditions I'll be able to open a feature request for this.

If you are attempting to avoid builds on certain commits you can use the "[skip ci]" token in their commit message. Commits with that token will not trigger builds.

Hi @Daniel Santos 

something like:

when: $(git diff --name-only --diff-filter=AMDR HEAD^ some-directory-or-file) != ""
