Bitbucket standard variables are not resolved

Jeroen Lodder August 16, 2023

I have the following step within my pipeline to deploy to a local folder on the build server.

 - step: &deploy
name: Deploy
- self.hosted
- windows
- dir -r
- $COMMIT_SHORT = git log --pretty=format:'%h' -n 1
- Compress-Archive -Path bin/*.exe, bin/*.dll -DestinationPath "C:\atlassian-bitbucket-pipelines-runner\Artifacts\${BITBUCKET_REPO_SLUG}-${BITBUCKET_BRANCH}-$COMMIT_SHORT-${BITBUCKET_BUILD_NUMBER}.zip"

But none of the variables are resolved, except COMMIT_SHORT, what is causing this?

As you correctly stated, Windows has a different syntax compared to Linux for referring to environment variables.

To reference a variable in a step that uses Windows runners you can use the syntax :


as also described in the article How to access environment variables in Windows Runners on Bitbucket cloud pipelines? 

Thank you, @Jeroen Lodder !
