Conditional maven command

Hi,

is it possible to have the maven command set using conditionals?

something like this (not working example)

version: 2.1

orbs:
  maven: circleci/maven@1.2

workflows:
  maven_test:
    jobs:
      - maven/test:
          when:
            condition:
              equal: [ master, << pipeline.git.branch >> ]
              command: deploy
          unless:
              condition:
              equal: [ master, << pipeline.git.branch >> ]
              command: package

Hi @peringemar! Welcome to the CircleCI Discuss community!

What you’re trying to achieve is indeed possible, albeit with a different syntax.

You’d need to leverage the pre-steps argument in order to dynamically set the value of the command parameter you wish to pass to the maven/test job.

I suggest the following configuration:

version: 2.1

orbs:
  maven: circleci/maven@1.2

workflows:
  maven_test:
    jobs:
      - maven/test:
          command: $MAVEN_COMMAND
          pre-steps:
            - when:
                condition:
                  equal: [ master, << pipeline.git.branch >> ]
                steps:
                  - run: echo 'export MAVEN_COMMAND=deploy' >> $BASH_ENV

            - unless:
                condition:
                  equal: [ master, << pipeline.git.branch >> ]
                steps:
                  - run: echo 'export MAVEN_COMMAND=package' >> $BASH_ENV

 
Let me know if you have any question.
