Hello @oboe_ada ,

Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

My understanding of your requirement is that you would like to programmatically generate pipelines parallel steps based on the user input. I'm afraid this is not currently possible in Bitbucket Pipelines.

One option, in case you need to repeat sections of your yml file, is to use YML anchors. With anchors, you can define a "template" of the step and can re-use it multiple times in the rest of your YML file : 

    - step: &build-test
        name: Build and test
          - mvn package
          - target/**
      - step: *build-test
      - step: *build-test

 In the example above we are defining an anchor step named build-test which acts like the "template", and then we can reference it in the pipeline definition multiple times without having to repeat the entire step's code.

For more details about how to use anchors, you can refer to our documentation YAML Anchor - Bitbucket Pipelines.

Thank you, @oboe_ada !
