How do get Pipelines to act on a git push tag? (I have read the docs!)

I have the following in my bitbucket-pipelines.yml

- step:
- echo "Default Pipeline"
- step:
- composer
- node
- echo "v2.* Tag Pipeline"

No matter what I do all I get in the output is:

echo Default Pipleines

Any help would be appreciated

Hi Robert,

I understand you already read: 

Configure bitbucket-pipelines.yml

 Please try removing the curly brackets from:


If you still have trouble, please open a support request at and include your repo URL to so we can take a look. We will need to look at the build and environment variables that you have configured as well as TAGS.

Thank you,


I got it to work by creating a new yml file, the new one works as expected, must be a control code or something in the original.


Thanks for your help
