Bitbucket Pipe kubectl-run not updating LABELS


Our build process has a Pipe defined that uses `kubectl-run` to update a Deployment with a new image (built in the previous Pipelines step) and to then update labels on that Deployment with version information (the $BITBUCKET_COMMIT ENV).

The Deployment's image is updated correctly but the labels on the Deployment do not change.

There are no errors in the Pipelines log window or within the Pod's event log.

In the Pipelines log output I can see the part of the `docker run` command for `kubectl-run` with the relevant arguments are all correct:


--env=LABELS_COUNT="2" \

When I inspect the Deployment the `DD_TAGS` and `VERSION` labels have not been updated.

Is there some additional config that needs to be done within my Pipe to get this to work?

@Andrew Male hi. According to k8s managing resources labels update works only with 



So if you want update labels your should use something like this:

# execute pipe with your custom command
- pipe: atlassian/kubectl-run:3.1.2
KUBECTL_COMMAND: '<your custom command>'
# update labels here - pipe: atlassian/kubectl-run:3.1.2 variables: KUBE_CONFIG: $KUBE_CONFIG KUBECTL_COMMAND: 'apply' RESOURCE_PATH: '<your path.yml>' LABELS: - 'label1=value1' - 'label2=value2'

 We will update the pipe README to point that labels update should be used only with `apply` command.
