Firebase pipeline authentication error

Hi community


I am trying to auto-deploy my Vue.js app to Fireabse hosting, so I created a pipeline for that in my Bitbucket repo, with the following content, but the issue is right after building the app and deploying it to Firebase I get this error: 

Error: HTTP Error: 401, Request had invalid authentication credentials. Expected OAuth 2 access token, login cookie or other valid authentication credential. See


I am sure my access token is valid, as I generated it with login:ci . 

Why am I getting an authentication error?



image: node
pipelines: default:

- step: name: Test

script: - npm install && npm test

- step:

name: Build

script: - npm install && npm run build

artifacts: - build/**

- step:

name: Deploy to Firebase deployment: production

script: -

pipe: atlassian/firebase-deploy:0.2.1

I recently had the same problem. Many others solved this by doing firebase logout and firebase login to refresh their credentials in the cli. I actually had to run firebase login:ci which regenerates a new TOKEN you can use in your project Bitbucket repo under Repository Settings > Repository Variables. I deleted my old token and just Created a new one with the new token and it worked again. Hope this helps if you haven't solved it yet.
