Pipeline: Unique step ID when retriggered

We are using $BITBUCKET_BUILD_NUMBER to identify our test runs in cypress, however if we retrigger a step then the $BITBUCKET_BUILD_NUMBER value is the same.

Is there any built in variable that will give us the run number as well, or a unique identifier per step run?

Hi @John C ,

Is your use case re-triggering failed steps of a pipeline via the UI?

There is a unique identifier per step, you can use $BITBUCKET_STEP_UUID.

Please note though that when you rerun a failed step, the rerun will have a different $BITBUCKET_STEP_UUID than the original one.

It is therefore not possible to keep track of the run number in this case, since the step UUID changes. But you have a unique identifier for this step via $BITBUCKET_STEP_UUID.

Is this something that works for you?

Kind regards,

Thanks Theodora, 


That would work, as a work around we generate a random number and append it to the buildID so this is the same and allows us to use a built in ID.
