How to use deployment variables in multiple steps

I wanted to configure my Pipeline to build my production assets and then deploy them but I'm struggling to make the Deployment variables accessible to multiple steps.

I thought I would just duplicate the deployment property to all the steps that require it but that throws a config error and won't start the pipeline.

I think I also need to:

  • Use a node image to build the assets.
  • Use an AWS image to deploy.


Example of error:

Example of part of my bitbucket-pipelines.yml file with annotations:



I believe my question above is similar to this question:

Have you find something about it? 

To get around this I ended up moving all my variables from deployment-variables to Repository-level-variables with more verbose names for each deployment type.

This way the variables are accessible in the various places I need them.

I duplicated my singular "build" script within my bitbucket-pipelines.yml but replaced all the  variable names. So now I have 2 scripts "build-for-production" and "build-for-staging" which are identical apart from the variable names.


It's not ideal because of all the code duplication but I don't think there's another way in February 2020.
