YAML anchors + Overriding + Reusing deployment variables


So here is a doozy

  1. For some reason bitbucket does not allow us to use the deployment variables for more than on step.
  2. To get around this we are passing in variables through the use of artifacts to the next step.
  3. As one of those variables is an AWS Key we obviously don't want to pass that off as an artifact to leave out in the open.
  4. To get around this we are creating a separate AWS variable at the repo level for each environment.

The problem is if you are reusing steps vs YAML anchors (say s3 deploy pipe), how would you get the right AWS variable to be called in the reused pipes? Sample code below. So say I have different keys for Dev and UAT

- step: &build-and-deploy
name: Build And Deploy
- pipe: atlassian/aws-s3-deploy:0.2.4
- step: *build-and-deploy
- step: *build-and-deploy

There a possible hacky solution here:

Basically use a step that writes env vars to a file and pass that around... 

@Ming Han Chung I have the same issue. I want to reuse codedeploy pipe and replace the value of DEPLOYMENT_GROUP.

- step: *build
- step:
<<: *deploy
name: Deploy to Prod
deployment: production
trigger: manual
DEPLOYMENT_GROUP: 'production-deployment-group'

@Abryan Manalansang  did you get a solution to this?

likewise! This would save me a lot of effort
