Meta field (meta) added to EnvironmentItemOptionsModel, read more on New version of Envman section of the Changelog.

New version of Stepman (0.9.33)

Go dependencies update.

New version of Envman (1.1.6)

Meta field (meta) added to EnvironmentItemOptionsModel

This property of the environment options is used to define extra options without creating a new envman release.

The bitrise-cli does not use meta field directly, but other tools can use this property to expand the environment options.

For example the website will use the meta field to define if secret environment variables should be used in pull request triggered builds or not.


- MY_SECRET_ENV: secret value
      is_expose: true
