I added two custom pipelines in order to manually trigger them: One for deployment to test and the other for deployment to prod.
Unfortunately, it is possible to run both pipelines on every branch, e.g. I could run "deployment to prod" on the development branch, which should only be possible on the master branch.
Is there a way to limit custom pipelines to specific branches?
If you want to follow @Steve Taylor's answer you can also check the BITBUCKET_BRANCH environment variable in the pipeline. https://confluence.atlassian.com/bitbucket/environment-variables-794502608.html
Alternatively, you could set up a pipeline that runs on master only and has manual steps that do the deployments. i.e. Steps that will only trigger with manual input. You will also need to be using artifacts for this.
Something like this:
name: "Deploy to Staging"
name: "Deploy to Production"
Then you can also set up Bitbucket Deployments (if you're in the alpha programme) to track the status of your environments https://confluence.atlassian.com/bitbucket/bitbucket-deployments-940695276.html
I just noticed that since some weeks there's an option to run every pipeline (not only custom ones) from every commit.
This is dangerous (everyone could push to production WIPs or old commits, or even malicious ones via a side branch).
Is it really this way?
As a project manager, I have discovered that different developers want to bring their previous branching method with them when they join the team. Some developers are used to performing individual wo...
