support negated string and match conditions in gitlab-ci.yml
For gitlab.com deployment pipelines we use variables for running subsets of the very long pipeline that deploys from staging->cny->production.
In order to add this logic to our
gitlab-ci.yml we would like the following conditional:
only: variables: - $SOME_VAR != 'some value' - $GITLAB_ENV == 'something' - $GITLAB_ENV == 'something else' ....
Where it is understood that these variable conditions are OR'd together.
$SOME_VAR != 'some value' is not supported in variable syntax.
Also, because we use re2 for pattern matching we cannot use a negative lookahead for a variable not matching a string.
This issue is to add support for negated string and match conditions:
- $SOME_VAR != 'something string' - $SOME_VAR !~ /some pattern/
