Is it possible to use account variable values in the image name value for a bitbucket-pipelines.yml?

I'm using a private image hosted via AWS ECR.

As can be seen at that link, the syntax for doing so involves setting an `` value in bitbucket-pipelines.yml ...

  name: <aws_account_id>.dkr.ecr.<region>
    access-key: $AWS_ACCESS_KEY
    secret-key: $AWS_SECRET_KEY

I would like to know whether it is possible to use an account variable value to define parts of the `` URI. For example, it would be nice to be able to set $AWS_ACCOUNT_ID, such that someone forking my repo could set their own value, and use my config as-is.

I've tried doing so, but as soon as I push the commit, I get feedback indicating that my config is invalid.

I've tried both of the following using no quotes, single quotes, and double quotes:


All of these variants show as valid using your online validation tool.

If this is not currently possible, would you consider making it so?
