Default variables in deployment steps


I recently tried to set the `$BITBUCKET_BRANCH` default variable for the deployment key in my yaml. I got an error when the pipeline ran stating:

"The environment '$BITBUCKET_BRANCH' in your bitbucket-pipelines.yml doesn’t match any environment defined in your settings. Either update your yml, or your settings, to use the same name."

Here's an example of what I'm talking about:

- step: &terraform_update
    image: name: <image>
  name: Update Terraform
  deployment: $BITBUCKET_BRANCH
do stuff

I have deployment variables set for each environment. Do deployment variables override default variables like $BITBUCKET_BRANCH even if they're not overwritten in the deployment variables?

@Jason Ausmus Bitbucket Pipelines doesn't support using variables as key for deployment, you will have to statically define the deployment environment.

    image: name<image>
  nameUpdate Terraform
do stuff
