How to access deployment environment variables in more than one step?

Is possible?

2 answers

it seems odd that his limitation exists.

could this be added as a feature?

our use case is to write client secrets from Deployment Variables into a file, and in the next step run a pipe which requires those variables.

otherwise I need to quit using the pipe, and script this all out.

Hi @Danilo Gentil Setúbal 

An environment can only be deployed to from one step in the pipeline.

You can define the same variable on different environments however and each step will get the value associated with the environment it deploys to.

You can also define account and repository level variables that are available to every step in the pipeline.

For example if you define:

  • A repository level variable: MY_VAR with value my_repo_var
  • A deployment variable on the Test environment: MY_VAR with value my_test_var
  • A deployment variable on the Production environment: MY_VAR with value my_prod_var

Then this pipeline:

- step:
- echo $MY_VAR
- step:
deployment: test
- echo $MY_VAR
- step:
deployment: production
- echo $MY_VAR
- step:
- echo $MY_VAR

will produce the following output:





Please see the following page in our documentation for more information on variables:


I have 20 lambdas to deploy, each gets deployed only when there is a change in corresponding code( I am using condition, changesets-include paths to build the corresponding lambda). My concerns is can I specify "deployment: Dev" as 20 times, I mean each step?. Please suggest
