Converted To Exponent
When setting a job level environment variable, if the value is an integer and greater than 6 digits, we will convert it to an exponential number. As an example:
version: 2.1 jobs: build: docker: - image: buildpack-deps:trusty environment: NUMBER: 7777777
The above would become
7.777777e+06 in the job. The reason for this conversion is how yaml interprets the value being passed. However, this can be avoided in a few different ways.
Store value as a string
Instead of setting the value as an integer instead set it as a string as to avoid the conversion. So instead of
7777777 set it to
"7777777" like this:
version: 2.1 jobs: build: docker: - image: buildpack-deps:trusty environment: NUMBER: "7777777"
Set the variable at the project level
Instead of setting the variable in your
config.yml directly, you can instead set the variable at the project level to utilize in jobs. This will ensure the value is protected and not automatically converted.
