If you place a settings.xml file in the $HOME directory on your docker instance, it will be used to run your maven commands.


pipelines:
  default:
    - step:
        script:
          - cp <repo-path>/settings.xml $HOME/.m2/settings.xml
          - mvn clean install


This worked for me when I replaced 

<repo-path>  

with

/opt/atlassian/pipelines/agent/build 

Yes, we'd like to know how and specifically need to be able to configure the `<servers>` element with authentication info

I just copied the settings.xml file from my repo to the home directory before building.

cp <project-path>/settings.xml $HOME/.m2/settings.xml

mvn clean install

@Bryan Phillips,

That's how you update settings.xml in your local Maven repo, but we are talking about the remote settings.xml file that Bitbucket uses on the docker container when running mvn commands. At this point, I am guessing that the this files is a part of the maven:3.3.3 docker image listed in bitbucket-pipelines.yml

Oh, thanks @Bryan Phillips, this is awesome. Can you add this as an answer?
