Why my pipeline doesn't save my docker cache

I run my pipeline and at the end i have

in the Build teardown
a have
Assembling contents of new cache 'node'
The docker cache will consist of all unique layers from the following images:
XXXX latest 0b36a0e36fe1 2 minutes ago 2.89GB
XXXX master 0b36a0e36fe1 2 minutes ago 2.89GB
<none> <none> 2b8bbc83a9f5 2 minutes ago 2.88GB

Docker images saved to cache

Searching for files matching artifact pattern test/**

Finished scanning for test reports. Found 0 test report files.

Merged test suites, total number tests is 0, with 0 failures and 0 errors.
After execution when I go in the caches button, but it seems the cache has not been really saved

and if a restart a pipeline the Build setup indicate
Cache "docker": Downloading

Cache "docker": Not found

Cache "node": Downloading

Cache "node": Not found
Does anyone have an idea of  my mistake ?
Here my pipeline file
image: atlassian/default-image:2
- step:
name: Build
- docker login XXX
- docker build --tag test-ci .
- docker tag test-ci XXXX
- docker push XXX
- docker
- docker
- node
- test/**

Hi, @Gregory ANNE

Thank you for reaching out to Atlassian Community!

Checking your image, I can see that its size is huge, so this is the reason that cache is not saved. Only caches under 1 GB once compressed are saved. For the cache to compress to under 1 GB, the size of the original images in the Docker must be < 2GB. In this case, I would suggest that you try to reduce the size of your image.

As mentioned in this documentation, under "How does caching work?" section, you can check the size by adding this command to the script in your bitbucket-pipelines.yml:

docker image inspect $(docker image ls -aq) --format {{.Size}} | awk '{totalSizeInBytes += $0} END {print totalSizeInBytes}'

We already have a feature request to improve the message when we upload more than 1 GB as you can see here:

I would suggest that you add your vote there (by selecting the Vote for this issue link) as the number of votes helps the development team and product managers better understand the demand for new features. 

You are more than welcome to leave any feedback, and you can also add yourself as a watcher (by selecting the Start watching this issue link) if you'd like to get notified via email on updates.

Implementation of new features is done as per our policy here and any updates will be posted in the feature request. 

I hope this helps, but do let me know if you have any questions. 

Kind regards,

Thanks, we have update the docker image to reduce the size, and all work now.
