Hi @Ananth Sarathy ,

With the release of Dynamic Pipelines you can now achieve a greater level of flexibility with the Bitbucket pipelines.

I just published this article explaining how to add a step dynamically to a repository. You'll also see that there is a greater level of flexibility with what can be achieved considering that, the app logic, can change the entire pipeline of a repository.

Hope this helps,

Hey @Ananth Sarathy and welcome to the Community!

Currently, the shared pipelines feature only allows you to export/import the entire pipeline definition between repositories. I'm afraid it's not possible to import a single step or import the pipeline as a step (see Share Pipelines Configuration FAQ | Bitbucket Cloud).

We have a feature request opened to improve the capabilities of shared pipelines, which includes the possibility to share individual steps of a pipeline between repositories : 

We encourage you to Vote for that feature so it gets more visibility and helps our developers understand the interest. Also, you have the option to set yourself as a Watcher so you will be notified whenever there's any progress on that feature. New features are implemented based on this policy.

Thank you, @Ananth Sarathy !
