Tagging a release with Bitbucket Pipelines


I am trying to write a Bitbucket Pipelines script that automatically add a git tags to on the master branch


image: maven:3.3.3

    - step:
          - mvn clean install
      - step:
            - mvn clean install
            - git tag THE_VERSION
            - git push


Pipelines gives me an error saying it is unable to authenticate to when it attempts the push

remote: Invalid username or password. If you log in via a third party service you must ensure you have an account password set in your account profile.
fatal: Authentication failed for 'https://x-token-auth:{access_token}@bitbucket.org/deepskyblue/xero-client.git/'

Anyone have any ideas how I get this working?

Part of my build process I also push back to the same repo.  Using an oauth token I run this command to set my remote with auth:

    git remote set-url origin https://x-token-auth:${BITBUCKET_TOKEN}@bitbucket.org/${BITBUCKET_REPO_OWNER}/${BITBUCKET_REPO_SLUG}.git

The BITBUCKET_TOKEN env variable was something I generate in my scripts because they expire, so I need to generate a new one each build.

In my case, I also needed to setup the user config:

    git config --global user.email "builder@example.com"

    git config --global user.name "Build"


Then I could do whatever git operations I needed to do.

Thanks Alex

Are you able to share the script you use to generate  BITBUCKET_TOKEN? I am confused how you do this.
