How to pass variable across steps Edited

I  defined a variable in step1 export val="test". I would like to used it in the next step2 echo $val. How can I access the variable in next step. Is there a special way I can declare variables so that they can persist across steps.

Hi @t1279k ,

It is possible to declare variables on the repository level and on the workspace level. If you want this variable only for one specific repo, you could define it as a repository variable and it will be available in all steps of this repo.

You can check our doc below, specifically the section User-defined variables:

Another option would be to create a text file during the first step where you define the variable.
E.g., you could create a file myfile.txt with content


Then, define the file myfile.txt as an artifact, so that it becomes available to all following steps:

In the second step, you can then run

source myfile.txt

and this command will set the variable for the second step where you run it, and you'll be able to use it.

Do any of these options work for you?

Kind regards,
