Generate Signed APK using Bitbucket pipeline Edited

Manish Kumar Atlassian Team Jan 27, 2021

Hi everyone,


I am trying to build release-signed apk using bitbucket pipeline. I am able to make release build but not sure how to sign it using BB pipeline. I have following queries here

1. Where to store .keystore file for signing

2. How to use it in bitbucket-pipeline.yaml file

Hi everyone,

Just answering my own question

1. Encode keystore file into base 64 (can use terminal to do same)

               base64 > keystore_file

2. Create a secure repo variable and store the base64 value

3. Decode keystore file during build process

echo "$SIGNING_JKS_FILE" | base64 -d > keystore_file

Since this is secure variable it will not be printed anywhere

4. Now we can go ahead with our normal build process.
