Service CLI tools not found


I want to upload the dist files of an internal python library a GCP bucket. To do so I followed these instructions to put together the step below:

image: google/cloud-sdk:latest


step: &rabbitmq-wrapper
name: RabbitMQ wrapper
image: python:3.7.3
cd common-libs/rabbitmq_wrapper/
pip install mock==4.0.2 coverage==5.1
pip install -r requirements.txt
coverage run -m unittest discover test
coverage report --omit "test/*.py"
python sdist bdist_wheel
apt-get update && apt-get install -y gettext-base
envsubst < sa-genus.dist.json > service-account.json
gcloud auth activate-service-account --key-file=service-account.json
gsutil cp dist/* gs://mybucket/


All runs ok until the gcloud call that returns "gcloud: command not found". What am I doing differently from the official documentation? I am assuming that services provide access to a set of tools that is not included in the step image, is that right?

Service images are running alongside your build container, like a database or service that you can connect to. However, this doesn't mean that the service container's commands can be used directly. The dependencies needed to run these commands should exist in the image used in the step.

A few suggestion I can give for your use case:

  • You can use another docker image for this step that includes both python and gcloud dependencies
  • You can create your own custom image to use in this step with all the dependencies you need
  • You can run the Python tests in one step, and upload the files in a separate step that uses google/cloud-sdk image

Kind regards,
