Environment variables inside services

Alessandro Lattao Aug 07, 2018

Is there any way to have default variables (E.g. BITBUCKET_BRANCH) inside services or have branch specific variables inside those containers?

Even a way to forward environment variables inside "services" could help.

I need one of my services to do choices based on the current branch.

Hello Alessandro,

Currently service environment variables have to use literal strings. We have a page with the current limitations with service containers.

A work around would be to use Docker to manually spin up your service containers as part of your pipeline. Then you can explicitly set the environment variables with the ones available in your build container.

Thank you Philip!

That is, in fact, how I solved the problem.

Have a great day.
