Access to Bitbucket Pipelines error information on failure of a step


I am looking for a way to process error information from a pipeline that is a result of a failed step. I'm looking to access this information via the bitbucket-pipeline.yml while executing an after-script. I am looking to post this error log/failure data to external site for visualisations (Grafana). Is this error data currently accessible in the pipeline or is there a better way to achieve this?

Thanks in advance.

Hi @Niall Flavin,

Welcome to the community.

As long as you can manually save the logs within the directory $BITBUCKET_CLONE_DIR, you can access it in the after-script step then POST it externally.

Alternatively, you can also use the API 2.0 endpoint below to get your step's logs.


API Documentation

To get the Pipelines and Step UUID's, you can use the below default environment variables:
Note that you'll have to URL encode it as it includes curly braces


Hope it helps and let me know if you have further questions that I can help with.
