Somehow I feel this should be very simple, and I cannot seem to find a way to do it with the cirleci config.
I have a simple task—take one value and map it to another based on a predefined map.
Something like this:
buckets: staging: dashboard: staging-dashboard.example.com referrer: referrer-stage.example.com
YAML allows me to define this without problems. My issue is I cannot figure out how to use it in circleci config:
deploy: executor: gcp/google parameters: *build_parameters steps: - attach_workspace: root: . - gcp/install - configure_google_sdk - gcp/initialize: gcloud-service-key: GCLOUD_SERVICE_KEY_DECODED - get_bucket: <<< HOW_TO_DO_THIS >>> environment: <<parameters.environment>> dashboard_type: <<parameters.dashboard_type>> - gcp-storage/upload: source_path: dist/apps/<<parameters.dashboard_type>>-admin/** destination_bucket: $BUCKET_NAME
My only solution so far has been to write a custom bash script which would map things inside code() and set $BUCKET_NAME environment variable. It seems like a massive overkill for such a simple thing, and the last thing I want is to store a mapping in some cryptic bash script.
Any better ideas?
With Github actions I can read from JSON files directly. Maybe something like this exists for cirleci?
