Hi @Mahmoud

I can see you've attempted to add the 'openjdk:8' docker image as a service. Services are designed to provide additional databases, webservices etc as part of your build, and not provide CLI tools (the exception is the pipelines built in 'docker' service, which in addition to providing a docker daemon, also makes the docker CLI available by mounting in a volume containing the docker CLI  - see 

The pipelines default image already provides Java 1.8.0_151, so if you want to continue using this, you can re-write your first step to be:

    - step:
name: Build And Test
- bash ./gradlew clean build
- bash ./gradlew test

In your second step, you will need to either:

- Use a custom docker image that has both gcloud tools and the jdk, or

- Use the default pipelines image, and install the gcloud CLI manually

The following is an example step which has docker as a service, jdk and gcloud CLI, where the google cloud CLI is installed as part of the build:

nameBuild And Test 
# Install gcloud CLI 
export CLOUD_SDK_REPO="cloud-sdk-$(lsb_release -c -s)" 
echo "deb $CLOUD_SDK_REPO main" | sudo tee -a /etc/apt/sources.list.d/google-cloud-sdk.list 
curl | sudo apt-key add - 
sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install -y google-cloud-sdk 
gcloud --version 
java -version 
docker --version

Instructions for installing the gcloud CLI can be found at



Thanks @Graham Gatus for clarifying this to me. I've took the second option and it works now, Many thanks :)
