Even with cache enable dependencies are always downloaded

Hello, I'm using bitbucket pipelines to build my project, the thing is even though I'm using the config


- step:
- maven
- docker version
- mvn clean package verify -Dmaven.docker.plugin.skip=true -s settings.xml
- elasticsearch

for some reason the maven dependencies still being downloaded every time this increase a lot the build time, I'm understanding the feature wrong? should my built time decrease in at least 30% after enabling the maven cache?

Hi @Eric Santos do Nascimento,

At the end of a successful build Pipelines will capture the dependencies store in the specified location. Since you referenced 'maven' it will look in location '~/.m2/repository' 

Given that it does not seem to work for you, could you try putting this at the end of your script in your bitbucket-pipelines.yml to see if anything is inside that default local maven repository: 

- cd ~/.m2/repository
- ls

Another thing you could check is what the default configured local maven repository is: 

mvn help:evaluate -Dexpression=settings.localRepository | grep -v '\[INFO\]'

I hope this helps.
