If I want extra steps to run on master, do I have to define the default steps twice?

I see in the Bitbucket pipelines documentation that I can specify steps to run just on master, i.e.

branches:

    master:

 

I want the steps in default: to run as well as the specific ones for master:

- Do I need to define those twice?

i.e. Do I need to do this, or is there a more efficient way?

 



pipelines:
default:
- step:
name: Step one
script:
- echo Step One Is Identical Both Times
branches:
master:
- step:
name: Step one
script:
- echo Step One Is Identical Both Times
- step:
name: Step two
script:
- echo Step two

Hi @Chris Doman ,

You can use YAML anchors for repeated sections, to make the file easier to read and also update:

E.g. the example you included would look like this with anchors:

definitions:
steps:
- step: &step-one
name: Step one
script:
- echo Step One Is Identical Both Times

pipelines:
default:
- step: *step-one
branches:
master:
- step: *step-one
- step:
name: Step two
script:
- echo Step two

Is this something that works for you? Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions.

Kind regards,
Theodora

Thats great - Thankyou Theodora
