Why is the dynamic variable not working in my command?



My script works fine when for example the variable 

$ZIP_FILE_NAME in - zip -r $ZIP_FILE_NAME . -x *.git*

is written static like:

- zip -r . -x *.git*

However, when I try to use via call to a dynamic variable defined in the global variables of the repository. I have this error in the pipeline: 

The user-provided path does not exist.

Can you help? here the script I use:

image: node:6.9.4
name: "Zip the code"
echo "zip file"
apt-get update && apt-get install zip --assume-yes
zip -r $ZIP_FILE_NAME . -x *.git*
artifacts: - $ZIP_FILE_NAME
step: name: "Push the zip file to S3"
caches: - node
script: - echo "push to s3 bucket"
# install Amazon CLI
apt-get update
apt-get install -y python --assume-yes
apt-get install -y jq
curl -O
python - python -m pip install --upgrade "pip < 21.0"
pip install awscli - aws configure set default.region eu-west-1
aws configure set aws_access_key_id $AWS_ACCESS_KEY_ID --profile $AWS_PROFILE_NAME
aws configure set aws_secret_access_key $AWS_SECRET_ACCESS_KEY --profile $AWS_PROFILE_NAME
aws iam get-user - temp_role=$(aws sts assume-role --role-arn $AWS_ROLE_ARN --role-session-name "assumedrole" --profile $AWS_PROFILE_NAME)
aws configure set aws_access_key_id $(echo $temp_role | jq .Credentials.AccessKeyId | xargs) --profile $AWS_PROFILE_NAME
aws configure set aws_secret_access_key $(echo $temp_role | jq .Credentials.SecretAccessKey | xargs) --profile $AWS_PROFILE_NAME
aws configure set aws_session_token $(echo $temp_role | jq .Credentials.SessionToken | xargs) --profile $AWS_PROFILE_NAME
aws s3 cp "./$ZIP_FILE_NAME" $AWS_S3_BUCKET --profile $AWS_PROFILE_NAME


The error is generated for 

- aws s3 cp "./$ZIP_FILE_NAME" $AWS_S3_BUCKET --profile $AWS_PROFILE_NAME


Thanks a lot on advance

Hi finally managed to have it work. The problem came from the artifacts. They cannot be set with dynamic variables. Code works OK otherwise. May need a few updates.
