Pre Workflow Hooks
Pre workflow hooks can be defined to run scripts before default or custom workflows are executed. Pre workflow hooks differ from custom workflows in several ways.
- Pre workflow hooks do not require for repository configuration to be present. This can be utilized to dynamically generate repo configs.
- Pre workflow hooks are run outside of Atlantis commands. Which means they do not surface their output back to the PR as a comment.
- Pre workflow hooks only allow
Pre workflow hooks can only be specified in the Server-Side Repo Config under
pre-workflow-hooks do not prevent Atlantis from executing its workflows(
apply) even if a
run command exits with an error.
Dynamic Repo Config Generation
If you want generate your
atlantis.yaml before Atlantis can parse it. You can add a
run command to
pre_workflow_hooks. Your Repo config will be generated right before Atlantis can parse it.
repos: - id: /.*/ pre_workflow_hooks: - run: ./repo-config-generator.sh description: Generating configs
This is very similar to custom workflow run command.
- run: custom-command

runcommands are executed with the following environment variables:
BASE_REPO_NAME- Name of the repository that the pull request will be merged into, ex.

HEAD_REPO_NAME- Name of the repository that is getting merged into the base repository, ex.
HEAD_REPO_OWNER- Owner of the repository that is getting merged into the base repository, ex.
HEAD_BRANCH_NAME- Name of the head branch of the pull request (the branch that is getting merged into the base)
HEAD_COMMIT- The sha256 that points to the head of the branch that is being pull requested into the base. If the pull request is from Bitbucket Cloud the string will only be 12 characters long because Bitbucket Cloud truncates its commit IDs.
BASE_BRANCH_NAME- Name of the base branch of the pull request (the branch that the pull request is getting merged into)
PULL_NUM- Pull request number or ID, ex.
PULL_AUTHOR- Username of the pull request author, ex.
