Announced in this blog, this holiday season we’re celebrating all things CI/CD and between now and the end of 2019 we’ll be showcasing content, use cases, feature announcements and more.
One feature we added to help teams build and automate their CI/CD pipelines in Bitbucket Cloud were Pipes. With over supported 50 pipes available that let you test, deploy, scan, or manage artifacts with many of the industry’s leading vendors, it’s trivial to set up the external services your team uses across your pipelines and repositories. Best of all, these supported pipes are updated and maintained by the author meaning you never have to worry about updating or re-configuring them yourself.
But there’s no one-size-fits-all approach to software development and developers have their own preferences in terms of how they build software and the tools they want to use. As such we’ve made it easy to create your own custom pipes, allowing teams the freedom to automate and integrate their CI/CD pipeline to meet their specific needs and requirements.
Creating a custom pipe
Creating a custom pipe simplifies the configuration of your CI/CD pipeline and makes re-use easy and efficient. A custom pipe would be useful in situations where:
The same action is performed in several steps of your pipeline
Similar tasks are run in multiple repositories
An action being performed needs dependencies that your main pipeline doesn't have
Connecting with an external service to make it easier to use in pipelines
Full instructions on how to create a custom pipe can be found here, and below are guides and examples of custom pipes you can learn and gain inspiration from:
Share your custom pipe and win!
In the spirit of giving this holiday season we want you to tell us about the custom pipes you’ve built! Simply share your pipe repository with us in a comment below, along with a description of what your pipe does and how it helps your CI/CD workflow. You have until 29 February, 2020 to share your custom pipe and we’ll randomly choose a few submissions to win a limited edition Bitbucket bomber jacket.
Best of luck!
