aws-cloudformation-deploy parameter issue


I am using the aws-cloudformation-deploy to deploy my code. But I want to put  the stack parameters in a separate JSON file to keep the bitbucket-pipelines.yaml file a bit cleaner. 

when I add: STACK_PARAMETERS"./cloudformation/test.json"

content of file:

[{    "ParameterKey": "COUNT",   

      "ParameterValue": "20"     


I get this error:

botocore.exceptions.ParamValidationError: Parameter validation failed:Invalid type for parameter Parameters, value: ./cloudformation/test.json, type: <class 'str'>, valid types: <class 'list'>, <class 'tuple'>

The value for STACK_PARAMETERS has to be a json string, not a path to a json document. You can read the json document from a file and assign it to a variable to be used in the pipe:


- export PARAMETERS=$(cat ./cloudformation/test.json)
- pipe: atlassian/aws-cloudformation-deploy:0.6.4
STACK_NAME: 'my-stack-name'

Thanks. that worked out beautifully.
