is it possible to dynamically create parallel steps based on artifact of previous step?

We have a monorepo and need to be able to build multiple containers in parallel. However, how many we need to build will change each time to pipeline is run. so I have the following logic:


generate list of containers to build --> generate parallel steps --> run the parallel steps


pipelines:  default:      
generate list of changed services          
the list      
script: create parallel steps    
parallel:        \
stepbuild container #1        
stepbuild container #2


is this possible in bitbucket pipelines?

@Eytan Yammer Currently Bitbucket Pipelines doesn't support dynamic parallel steps. Are the max containers a constant? If that is the case, I would suggest having a step for all the containers and skipping them if it's not required to build the container based on the artifact. 

Thanks. For the time being the number of container won't be changing every day but it will be growing steadily over the next several months. 


What I've decided to do was the following. 


pipelines:  default:    


   - step:         

      nameBuild container1




        - path/to/container1/code/**

   - step:         

      nameBuild container2




        - path/to/container2/code/** 


this will have to do for the time being. Thanks for the help.
