Gemfile.lock read-only in pipelines

It seems I cannot run bundle install in pipelines as the lock file is readonly.

Edit for answer:

The initial commands are run as root which means that if you change the user during your pipeline run then you'll lose the ability to write file.

One way to fix that would be to run the following command at the start of your pipeline:

sudo chown -R <user>:<group> *

Hi Peter,

Can you tell me what error you're seeing in the logs? As far as I know the Gemfile.lock file does not need to be updated during bundle install as it contains the list of all the dependencies you need to run your application.

Bundler will simply install those dependencies at the right version on the container.

Not sure if it is the same issue, getting this message on `bundle install` using custom Docker image:

Would you be able to share your YML configuration here? The initial commands are run as root which means that if you change the user during your pipeline run then you'll lose the ability to write file.

One way to fix that would be to run the following command at the start of your pipeline:

sudo chown -R <user>:<group> *

Where <user> and <group> are the relevant value for your configuration.

That worked. Had `postgres` user initially in Dockerfile, changed to `root` and it worked. Thanks!

@Péter Nagy does that solve your issue?

Hi,

That's my understanging too, hence the error message below:

Installing yard 0.8.7.6 

 There was an error while trying to write to Gemfile.lock. It is likely that you need to allow write permissions for the file at path: /opt/atlassian/bitbucketci/agent/build/Gemfile.lock
