deployment variables not working



i'm trying to use deployment variables as follows:

 image: node:8.12.0 

- step: &build-stg-angular
- node
script: # Modify the commands below to build your repository.
- credentials="${server_username}@${server_ip}"
- npm install
- npm run build-stg -- -c ${client}

- step: *build-stg-angular
- step:
name: Deploy to staging server.
deployment: asim-stg
- echo "Deploying"


but it doesn't recognise the variables!

I managed to get this working!
Just to be clear in the sample above the deployment variables refer to 


If that is the case, which I suspect it is I have the answer. 

Here is a simple example..

Here I'm trying to reference MY_DEPLOYMENT_VARIABLE_1 and MY_DEPLOYMENT_VARIABLE_2 however only MY_DEPLOYMENT_VARIABLE_2 will be recognized from the deployment variables.
The reason for this is simple.

Deployment variables are only recognized in the deployment block i.e. the block where we specify "deployment:Development". WHAT!

Further to this remember "deployment:Development" can only be used once.

Took me days to realize this :-(

Remember to ^^ Up Vote if this helps ;-)


Thank you so much for this answer. After looking through 1001 tutorials and ALL of bitbucket pipelines sh*t documentation. This solved it.

I think this would be the right answer. I'll give you feedback in 5 mins.

You are totally right. The deployment variables are only used in deployment block.

But any ideas about how to set build variables not explicitly configured in yaml file and not every time to type in the run pipeline input?

I don't know why, but it reads Repository variables successfully!

but it doesn't recognize environments variables!!


I'm having the same issue.

It doesn't work for me either. Can someone check on this please?

Should the variable be just $server_ip instead of bamboo like ${server_ip} ?

Has anyone solved this??
We are facing the same issue and it's causing a fair bit of extra work.
