Reverse Repositories Variable

Hi All,


On my project, and unfortunately, I lost and forget some variable values. How do I get the value of repositories variable of my bitbucket project? I'm an admin in my project. Is there any chance to reverse back the variable values?

Hi, @Revan Hernandy

Thank you for reaching out to Atlassian Community!

Before we start, I’d like to confirm what is happening on your side. Feel free to correct me in case I have misunderstood something here. You mentioned you lost and forgot some variable values on your repository. Could you please clarify if the variables have been deleted, or if you just don’t remember their values, but they are still there?

If you still have the secured variables, you can find out their values. You can achieve that by going to your yml file > echo the variable in a file that you define as an artifact > and then you can see the value of the variable if you download the artifact.

This is an example of how to retrieve a secured variable’s value with artifacts:

  - echo $variable > variablevalue.txt
  - variablevalue.txt

Looking forward to hearing from you. 

Kind regards,

Hi Caroline,

yes, I lost/forget some necessary credentials there and I need to know the value of the variables.

what pipe can I use?  atlassian/ssh-run:0.2.2 ?

if yes what mode can I use? script or command?


thank you!
