I am getting below error while running "mvn release:prepare release:perform" using bitbucket pipelines. Could you please suggest how to resolve the same?
"[ERROR] Failed to execute goal org.apache.maven.plugins:maven-release-plugin:2.4:prepare (default-cli) on project my-webapp: An error is occurred in the checkin process: Exception while executing SCM command. Detecting the current branch failed: fatal: ref HEAD is not a symbolic ref -> [Help 1]["
Pipelines checks out a specific revision/commit when it runs to help test each change to a project, leaving the working copy in "detached head" mode. Maven wants to make additional commits to your repo to record the changes to your pom.xml, and so must be on a branch.
At the beginning of your pipeline you'll want to reset the branch you want to release from, to the current commit. Assuming you're working from master, you would add
git checkout master
From here you'll be on head: master, and able to run maven release.
Please be aware that your release will fail if not running on the latest commit.
