Good afternoon folks
We’re using CircleCI with BitBucket repositories.
repo-one, I have added a git submodule of
repo-two (as a folder name
docker). I added this using command
git submodule add email@example.com:myteam/repo-two.git docker then
git push etc.
My CircleCI pipeline looks (abridged form) like:
my_service_test: machine: image: ubuntu-1604:202010-01 steps: - checkout - run: echo "do some other stuff using the docker folder"
This pipeline is run automatically using the CircleCI API by a “service account” user in CircleCI (just a normal user whose tokens etc. we store in contexts) rather than the individual who pushes code.
When it runs, the
docker folder doesn’t exist - the pipeline can’t access resources in it. If I remove the submodule and just add a folder called
docker with these resources in, the pipeline works fine.
When I add the line:
- run: git submodule sync --recursive && git submodule update --recursive --init
I get this error:
Submodule 'docker' (firstname.lastname@example.org:myteam/repo-two.git) registered for path 'docker' Cloning into '/home/circleci/project/docker'... Unauthorized fatal: Could not read from remote repository.
The service account user running this pipeline has
write access in BitBucket on both
What am I missing to get my submodules working?
