Envman store is empty when inspected

envman
#1

I have a need to pass the contents of the set environment variables to another build. The idea I have is to get the environments that were added via envman and cascade them as env variables to the new build. However I can’t seem to find the correct file. The envman project page says its in the .envstore in the current directory where it is invoked but there is no such file. Based in the output of envman --help it is supposed to be in the file pointed by ENVMAN_ENVSTORE_PATH but that file is also an empty yaml file.

The stored values via envman in a prior step is loaded properly in the Script step where I was trying to print out the content. Here is the output of the execution:

And here is the later script step that checks the contents

        #!/usr/bin/env bash
        echo PhraseApp value is [$PULL_PHRASEAPP_STRINGS]
        echo Jacoco Switch is [$RUN_JACOCO_TASKS]
        
        echo Envman print
        
        envman print

        echo Checking env store path

        ls -l ${ENVMAN_ENVSTORE_PATH}

        echo printing contents of the ENVMAN_ENVSTORE_PATH

        cat ${ENVMAN_ENVSTORE_PATH}

Which resulted to this output

Am I missing something?

How do you set variables like CI_BUILD_TYPE?

Its the standard

envman add --key “key-name” --value “${value}”

command. The environment variables are only persisted in that step and recognized by subsequent steps and workflows so I am assuming that the envman command works.

Thanks.
