Resources are stateful entities and persist across pipelines, enabling passing of information between pipelines. This is especially useful when creating a pipeline of pipelines.

Steps can store any key-value pair data in a resource using the write_outpututility function. These values can then be referenced as environment variables by any subsequent cuting step that uses that resource as an input. Therefore, a step can pass information to another step in the run of the pipeline.

The environment variable for the stored value is of the form res_<resource name>_<key name>.


The following example creates three properties in the resource myImage.

Using write_output

write_output myImage sport="baseball" equipment="bat" field="diamond"

When the resource is specified in a step's inputResources, these properties can be accessed as the following environment variables:

Environment Variables

$ printenv res_myImage_sport
$ printenv res_myImage_equipment
$ printenv res_myImage_field
