Get git branches for a tag within pipeline triggered by a tag


My bitbucket pipeline is triggered by a tag.

I am running a bash script within the pipeline step.


I am using this command to get all the git branches that have the tag that triggered the pipeline.

git branch --contains tags/$1

 The bash script works fine on my local (same docker env as the bitbucket pipeline). I made sure I had checked out the tag in git before running the bash script. 

I get the following result

* (HEAD detached at <commit>)


But when I run the actual pipeline, I get the following output for the above command -

* (no branch)




I added more git debug commands to see if any of the concerned branches exist inside the docker when the pipeline runs.

git fetch
git show-branch master


I get this error -

fatal: bad sha1 reference master


Any idea why this is happening ?
