In part of my .drone.yml below:
--- kind: pipeline type: kubernetes name: after trigger: event: - custom status: - failure #branch: # - master depends_on: #Induce Parallelism on 4 workers - test-worker-1 - test-worker-2 - test-worker-3 - test-worker-4 steps: - name: create-slack-template image: python failure: ignore commands: - python -V - pip install -r ./.github/scripts/requirements.txt - python drone/create-slack-template.py #Loads .env file, creates and populates appropriate template depends_on: - get-run-stats - name: release-run-slack-notification image: plugins/slack failure: ignore settings: webhook: from_secret: SLACK_WEBHOOK_SANDBOX channel: release-runs-cypress-drone template: file:///drone/src/drone/release-slack.txt depends_on: - create-slack-template
I’m trying to figure out a way to conditionally run step
release-run-slack-notification if the step before it,
create-slack-template checks if the drone build has a certain tag or not as an environmental variable. If it contains a tag, it runs the next step and send the slack message. If not, it shouldn’t send a slack message.
Currently, regardless of whether the drone build has a certain tag or not, the
release-run-slack-notification steps still runs. I’m somewhat getting around this by creating a line in the
release-slack.txt to show IGNORE if this tag is present. However, this creates a lot of unneeded notifications in slack with the IGNORE flag
Would love some help / advice on this! Thx!
