Manual build in bitbucket pipelines - how to find tags?


I want a manually triggered pipeline in which I react differently according to whether or not there's a tag on the repo at that point

$BITBUCKET_TAG seems to be empty if I trigger a pipeline on a commit which has a tag

Is there any way of finding out if there's a tag and what the value is?

Hi Al,

Bitbucket Pipelines allows for configuring pipelines based on tags being pushed, rather than commits. See here for documentation:

The $BITBUCKET_TAG variable will only be populated on a build with a tag configuration (as above).

Otherwise you can use the git tag list command, but you may need to enabled full clone (we automatically do a shallow clone for clone speed optimisation):

Does that help?
