How can i use openVPN in bitbucket pipelines Edited

Hello , i'm trying to implement an CI tests on bitbucket pipelines 

To do so ; i need to connect the pipelines to my OpenVPN server to be able to communicate with other client 

Here is my bitbucket-pipelines.yml  : 

image: alpine:latest

- step:
       - apk update
       - apk upgrade
       - apk --no-cache --no-progress add bash curl ip6tables iptables openvpn shadow tini sudo
       - adduser --system --no-create-home vpn
       - addgroup -S vpn
       - mkdir /dev/net
       - mknod /dev/net/tun c 10 200
       - chmod 666 /dev/net/tun
      - cp cloud.conf /etc/openvpn/
      - sudo openvpn --config /etc/openvpn/cloud.conf

I tried with/without sudo ( the pipelines is already in root ). with/without adduser/addgroup . 

I also tried it with Ubuntu image 

the problem remain : 

Wed May 15 09:02:50 2019 WARNING: Since you are using --dev tun with a point-to-point topology, the second argument to --ifconfig must be an IP address.  You are using something ( that looks more like a netmask. (silence this warning with --ifconfig-nowarn)
Wed May 15 09:02:50 2019 ROUTE_GATEWAY
Wed May 15 09:02:50 2019 ERROR: Cannot ioctl TUNSETIFF tun: Operation not permitted (errno=1)

Wed May 15 09:02:50 2019 Exiting due to fatal error

Hi @Abdoulaye Tandian

I don't have good news, unfortunately.
Long story short, this is not possible in Pipelines at the moment due to infrastructure limitations based on security. This subject was discussed in this post:

Philip is one of our developers. He shared an enhancement request already tracked in our system:

And a survey where more information could be collected so they can better evaluate and prioritize this issue among others.

The only option we have now is to leave comments on that enhancement request, fill the survey requested by Philip and wait.

Have a good one!

is there any update on this? 

Hi @Ajay Kumar

The channel to get updates on this implementation is:
#12753 - Allow customers to connect the pipelines builds to their own VPN server.
That is the channel our developers use to deliver their news and update the status of the issue/feature/bug.

That suggestion will be prioritized among other requests considering our Implementation of New Features Policy.
