Private GCR Image as build environment fails Edited


I've been trying to get bitbucket-pipelines to use a private GCR (Google Container Registry) image as a build environment without any luck.

I tried to have the service account json as raw & as base64 in an environment variable but neither worked.


I'm not sure how to get this to work... I'm out of ideas.


Thanks for the help!

If found my answer thanks to support. Such a small detail yet so important.

In the bitbucket-pipelines.yml when we specify credentials for a private repository the property image becomes an object with 3 properties: name, username & password.

should of been like this:

- step:
name: Build & Push image to GCR
username: _json_key
- echo $GCLOUD_API_KEYFILE | base64 -d > ./gcloud-api-key.json
- export GCLOUD_API_KEYFILE=./gcloud-api-key.json
- gcp-k8s image-build
- gcp-k8s image-push
