Determine tag that triggered build

Hi,

I have a build that is triggered by tags matching a wildcard expression (e.g. server-*). I would like to find out the exact tag that triggered the build and use it in my build script. Does anyone know if this is possible?

I imagine I could use something like:

git tag -l --points-at HEAD

to get the tags on the current commit but there is every possibility in my situation that the same commit may end up with multiple matching tags. I have searched for predefined variables supplied by Bitbucket but cannot find anything. It would be great if it supplied variables like TRIGGER_BRANCH, TRIGGER_TAG or something that I could reference.

thanks for any advice,

Steve

Hi Steven,

There are default environment variables you can use, such as

BITBUCKET_TAG or BITBUCKET_BRANCH

See our documentation.
