Bitbucket pipeline condition

Hi All,

I'm creating ElasticBeanStalk using bitbucket pipeline and terraform.

I have 3 environment, and each environment has 3 regions under the same account. 

I have also incorporated the IAM role and permission within the same pipeline. When trying to run pipeline for different region, it failed in IAM role & permission creation with an error resource already exists.

I want to use the pipeline variable to check if the IAM role/permission needs to create? If the value is True then it should run the script. 


I studied the bitbucket if condition, but it won't execute the terraform script, 


if $CREATE_ROLE; then
echo true
- cd createIamAcess
- terraform init -backend-config="bucket=$s3_Backend_Bucket_Name" -backend-config="key=$s3_Backend_StateFile_Location" -reconfigure
- terraform plan
- terraform apply -input=false -auto-approve


Can anyone please advise, how to use the terraform script within the if condition? or any other alternate option.

Hey @Nikhil 

You can try using bash's implicit if:

[[ ! -z "$CREATE_ROLE" ]] && terraform init -backend-config="bucket=$s3_Backend_Bucket_Name" -backend-config="key=$s3_Backend_StateFile_Location" -reconfigure

Hope that helps


Thank you for the suggesstion, it really helps. I have modified the script as follows: 

- cd createIamAcess
- if [[ "$CREATE_ROLE" == true ]]; then terraform init -backend-config="bucket=$s3_Backend_Bucket_Name" -backend-config="key=terraform.tfstate" -reconfigure && terraform apply -input=false -auto-approve; fi
# - |
here, CREATE_ROLE is pipeline ariable needs to set prior executing the pipeline
