Hi Sunny,

`$(pwd)` is resolving to `/opt/atlassian/pipelines/agent/build` so sftp is taking that path and copying everything to your remote, i.e. /opt/atlassian/pipelines/agent/build/wibble gets copied to /var/www/html/build/wibble. If you change `$(pwd)` to `.` I'm guessing it will then copy ./wibble to /var/www/html/./wibble, which is actually just /var/www/html/wibble, which should be what you want.

Hope this helps,


HI @mwatson  thanks for answer. Somehow it work with /opt/atlassian/pipelines/agent/build*   by putting '*' in front. but Now the problem is its  uploading full source code. I want to upload only newly  pushed  code  to be upload to the deployment  . 

I don't know if its even possible . currently i am creating zip [which contain all the code. that's issue. and uploading to live server here is my current yml file.

branches: # Automated triggers on commits to branches
master: # -- When committing to master branch
- step:
name: Deploy to production
deployment: production
- apt-get update # required to install zip
- apt-get install -y zip # required for packaging up the application
# - zip -r /tmp/ *
- zip -r /opt/atlassian/pipelines/agent/build/ '/opt/atlassian/pipelines/agent/build/'
- pipe: atlassian/sftp-deploy:0.3.1
USER: 'webuser'
REMOTE_PATH: '/var/www/html/'
LOCAL_PATH: '/opt/atlassian/pipelines/agent/build/'

I want to zip and upload only files that are commit or pushed to master branch. not all source which currently happening
