Git LFS in pipelines?

Is is possible to download the actual artifacts (binary files) for the build, instead of ascii files (links)? My Bitbucket repository is configured with LFS files, and the build needs those files.

Hi Janne,
A potential workaround is to install git lfs as part of your build or build a docker image with git lfs and use that image. You could then clone these artifacts manually in the build. It is important to remember that there is only 4GB of space available for your build.
Presently Git LFS is not usable within Pipelines. If this is a feature you would like please raise a feature request on https://bitbucket.org/site/master

As for the workaround, I've already tried this, but how you are supposed to access the credentials the Bitbucket needs for external (= git-lfs pull from the runnin docker container) access?

This will happen without credentials:

...

trace git-lfs: HTTP: 401 trace git-lfs: HTTP: Invalid username or password. If you log in via a third party service you must ensure you have an account password set in your account profile.

...

 

If you are referring to this "solution", it just does not work with "baked" ssh credentials inside a custom image!
