Can you share running containers between steps?

Xavier Serrat Bordas September 5, 2022


I have a pipeline where we're running different docker containers connected to each other using docker-compose.

I'm wondering if we have a way to share the running containers between steps to run some tests in parallel.


Is it possible?


Thanks in advance!

Hello @Xavier Serrat Bordas ,

Thank you for reaching out to Atlassian Community!

As each step in the pipelines runs in a isolated environment (each step in its own container), I'm afraid it's not possible to share the containers you start in a given step with the other steps.

In this case, if you would like to use parallel steps as part of your build, you would have to spin up the docker-compose containers in each of the parallel steps separately.

Let me know in case you have any questions.

Thank you, @Xavier Serrat Bordas .

Kind regards,

Patrik S
