How can I pass some environment variables to the next steps in a task? ‚Äč

Every step is executed in its own shell (run steps) or custom command (for clone, workspace and cache steps) so you cannot just export MYVARIABLE and have it defined in the next steps.

If you really need to pass variables populated by a run step in a following step you can just put a shell export command in a file and then "source" that file in the following step or use some shell specific options (like using BASH_ENV when using bash).

I.E. if you're using a shell like bash/zsh etc...

In step N:

echo "export MYVARIABLE=value" > /tmp/variables

In step N+i:

source /tmp/variables
