Unable to replace variable inside curl query

federico October 27, 2022

I would like to execute a curl query inside my bitbucket pipeline.
The issue I have is using the variable in the pipeline.
Here is my code


- |-
curl --location --request POST "https://xxx.atlassian.net/rest/api/3/issue/"${TICKET_NAME}"/comment" \
-H "Accept: application/json" \
-H "Content-Type: application/json" \
-H "Authorization: Basic $JIRA_API_TOKEN" \
-H "Cookie: atlassian.xsrf.token=$JIRA_COOKIE_TOKEN" \
--data-raw "{ \"body\": {\"type\": \"doc\",\"version\": 1,\"content\": [{\"type\": \"paragraph\",\"content\": [{\"text\": \"$PREVIEW_LINK\",\"type\": \"text\"}]}]}}"

The problem is `TICKET_NAME`, `PREVIEW_LINK`, `JIRA_COOKIE_TOKEN`, `JIRA_API_TOKEN` are not replaced....

I tried

"https://xxx.atlassian.net/rest/api/3/issue/"${TICKET_NAME}"/comment"
"https://xxx.atlassian.net/rest/api/3/issue/$TICKET_NAME/comment"
"https://xxx.atlassian.net/rest/api/3/issue/\"$TICKET_NAME\"/comment"
"https://xxx.atlassian.net/rest/api/3/issue/"$TICKET_NAME"/comment"

But nothing seems to work

This work inm my BASH

- >-
curl --location --request POST "https://adasiaholdings.atlassian.net/rest/api/3/issue/$TICKET_NAME/comment" \
-H "Accept: application/json" \
-H "Content-Type: application/json" \
-H "Authorization: Basic $JIRA_API_TOKEN" \
-H "Cookie: atlassian.xsrf.token=$JIRA_COOKIE_TOKEN" \
--data-raw "{ \"body\": {\"type\": \"doc\",\"version\": 1,\"content\": [{\"type\": \"paragraph\",\"content\": [{\"text\": \""$PREVIEW_LINK"\",\"type\": \"text\"}]}]}}"

but return

Hi @federico,

Please use ${TICKET_NAME}, ${PREVIEW_LINK}, ${JIRA_COOKIE_TOKEN} and ${JIRA_API_TOKEN}

The ${TICKET_NAME} in the URL shouldn't be within quotes.

Below is a curl command (with a few different variables) that works for me in Pipelines:

- curl -v --request POST --url "https://XXXX.atlassian.net/rest/api/3/issue/${issueKey}/comment" --user "${JiraEmail}:${JiraToken}" --header 'Accept:application/json' --header 'Content-Type:application/json' --data-raw "{\"body\":{\"type\":\"doc\",\"version\":1,\"content\":[{\"type\":\"paragraph\",\"content\":[{\"text\":\""${PREVIEW_LINK}"\",\"type\":\"text\"}]}]}}"

Please feel free to let me know if that works for you or if you're still seeing errors.

Kind regards,
Theodora
