Bitbucket pipelines: does Docker volume mounting work yet?

I have a similar issue to this question but I have tried the suggested solutions and volume mounting still does not work.

  • I have verified that the directory I am trying to mount as a volume does exist within my build directory
  • I have run the `docker run ...` bare command with my container, which downloads and runs the container with no problems
  • I have tried using a volume mount with the environment variable, e.g. `docker run -v="$BITBUCKET_CLONE_DIR/dist:/dist" 18fgsa/html-proofer /dist`
  • I have also tried using a volume mount with the absolute path, e.g. `docker run -v="/opt/atlassian/pipelines/agent/build/dist:/dist" 18fgsa/html-proofer /dist`
  • I have also tried the volume mount option in the other format, e.g. `docker run -v "$BITBUCKET_CLONE_DIR/dist:/dist" 18fgsa/html-proofer /dist`

All of these permutations have resulted in the same error:

`docker: Error response from daemon: authorization denied by plugin pipelines: Command not supported.`

Is there some permission which has not been enabled for Docker volume mounts??

Ok, for anyone reading this, as per the reply linked above, the answer is that you can currently only mount the bare $BITBUCKET_CLONE_DIR itself as the source for a volume. Any paths below it must be accounted for in your parameters passed to the run command.

So I changed my first example above to:

docker run -v="$BITBUCKET_CLONE_DIR:/app" 18fgsa/html-proofer /app/dist

... and then it worked.

Aha, I've just seen this reply to a similar question, I'll try that and see if it works for my issue.
