Set deployment variables from environment variable

It is possible to define at etch deployment same variable with different values that defined at environment variable


For example:

environment variables:


USER_PROD - prod



  • Dev
  • Prod


So the pipeline echo will prints for deployment 

  • Dev $USER  is  dev
  • PROD $USER is prod

Hi Maxim,

I assume that USER_DEV and USER_PROD are either workspace or repository variables?

I'm afraid that it is not possible to use the value of workspace or repository variables when you define deployment variables.

You can do so during the build if you include a command in the yml file, but it is not possible to reference another variable when you define them in the Repository settings > Deployments.

May I ask why that would be useful, instead of specifying the actual value in the deployment variables? I believe we have a feature request for this which was closed due to inactivity, but I can reopen and add an explanation on why this would be a useful feature.

Kind regards,

if i define them as  workspace variables then other users of  bitbucket can use them as variables and their combination.
then when user ID or HOST changed i can update only at workspace and not at every repository pipeline.

Hi Maxim,

I went ahead and reopened the feature request, I also added your use case and feedback for our product managers to take into account.
