Can't SCP with wildcard
I am trying to use SCP with wildcards in a job but the runner fails because SCP return that it couldn't find the directory.
I tried running SCP with singles quotes, double quotes or without quotes and the result is always the same. Running the command on other server (VPS with Ubuntu) sends the files without problems.
Steps to reproduce
stages: - copy copy: stage: copy script: - 'which ssh-agent || (apt install openssh-client -y)' - eval $(ssh-agent -s) - echo "$SSH_PRIVATE_KEY" | tr -d '\r' | ssh-add - - mkdir -p ~/.ssh - chmod 700 ~/.ssh - echo "$SSH_KNOWN_HOSTS" > ~/.ssh/known_hosts - chmod 644 ~/.ssh/known_hosts - mkdir updated_files - mkdir updated_files/subdir - touch updated_files/somefile.txt - touch updated_files/subdir/otherfile.txt - ls -la "$CI_PROJECT_DIR/updated_files" - scp -r "$CI_PROJECT_DIR/updated_files/*" [email protected]:/dst_path
What is the current bug behavior?
The Job log shows the following:
$ ls -la "$CI_PROJECT_DIR/updated_files" total 28 drwxr-xr-x. 3 root root 4096 Nov 22 11:37 . drwxrwxrwx. 7 root root 4096 Nov 22 11:37 .. -rw-r--r--. 1 root root 0 Nov 22 11:37 somefile.txt drwxr-xr-x. 2 root root 4096 Nov 22 11:37 subdir $ scp -r "$CI_PROJECT_DIR/updated_files/*" [email protected]:/dst_path Warning: Permanently added the RSA host key for IP address 'XXX.XXX.XXX.XXX' to the list of known hosts. /builds/username/project/updated_files/*: No such file or directory ERROR: Job failed: exit code 1
What is the expected correct behavior?
SCP to copy the files correctly
