base64 -d error (pipe: atlassian/google-app-engine-deploy:0.6.0)

i am trying to deploy google app engine.


my pipe is :

- pipe: atlassian/google-app-engine-deploy:0.6.0
KEY_FILE: ~/AhaAppEngine/deploy/alykadev01-9dce7be5d92c.key
PROJECT: 'xxxx'


The key file exists and when I do cat "${KEY_FILE}" | base64 -d it can decode the file. while the pipeline does something odd:


Status: Downloaded newer image for bitbucketpipelines/google-app-engine-deploy:0.6.0INFO:

Setting up environment.

echo "${KEY_FILE}" | base64 -d >> /tmp/key-file.jsonbase64:

invalid input


I think the pipeline code is not correct. It should be:

cat "${KEY_FILE}" | base64 -d

Pipelines is not reading a file for the KEY_FILE, but echoing out an environment variable. the KEY_FILE value should not be a file path (you shouldn't keep your secrets in version control where they could leak to other developers) but the base64 encoded contents of the key file. This can be set in the repository settings, or even on a per deployment basis.
