Condition Expression Syntax

Condition expressions can be included in each step in your codefresh.yml, and must be satisfied for the step to execute.

Each step in codefresh.yml file can contain conditions expressions that must be satisfied for the step to execute.

This is a small example of where a condition expression can be used: YAML

  description: Step description
  image: image/id
    - bash-command1
    - bash-command2
        executeForMasterBranch: "'${{CF_BRANCH}}' == 'master'"

A condition expression is a basic expression that is evaluated to true/false (to decide whether to execute or not to execute), and can have the following syntax:


Type True/False Examples True/False
String True: “hello”
False: “”
  • String with content = true
  • Empty string = false
  • String with content = true
String comparison is lexicographic.
Number True: 5
True: 3.4
True: 1.79E+308
  • Any number other than 0 = true.
  • 0 = false
Boolean True: true
False: false
  • True = true
  • False = false
Null False: null Always false


You can use the User Provided variables as explained in the Variables documentation including the variables exposed by each individual pipeline step.

Function Name Parameters Return value Example
String 0: number or string String of input value. String(40) == '40'
Number 0: number or string Number of input value. Number('50') == 50
Number('hello') is invalid
Boolean 0: number or string Boolean of input value. Boolean('123') == true
Boolean('') == false
Boolean(583) == true
Boolean(0) == false
round 0: number Rounded number. round(1.3) == 1
round(1.95) == 2
floor 0: number Number rounded to floor. floor(1.3) == 1
floor(1.95) == 1
upper 0: string String in upper case. upper('hello') == 'HELLO'
lower 0: string String in lower case. lower('BYE BYE') == 'bye bye'
trim 0: string Trimmed string. trim(" abc ") == "abc"
trimLeft 0: string Left-trimmed string. trimLeft(" abc ") == "abc "
trimRight 0: string Right-trimmed string. trimRight(" abc ") == " abc"
replace 0: string - main string
1: string - substring to find
2: string - substring to replace
Replace all instances of the sub-string (1) in the main string (0) with the sub-string (2). replace('hello there', 'e', 'a') == 'hallo thara'
substring 0: string - main string
1: string - index to start
2: string - index to end
Returns a sub-string of a string. substring("hello world", 6, 11) == "world"
length string Length of a string. length("gump") == 4
includes 0: string - main string
1: string - string to search for
Whether a search string is located within the main string. includes("codefresh", "odef") == true
indexOf 0: string - main string
1: string - string to search for
Index of a search string if it is found inside the main string indexOf("codefresh", "odef") == 1
match 0: string - main string
1: string - regular expression string, JS style (Note: in JS strings, the backslash \ is an escape character so in order to use a literal backslash, you need to escape it. For example: "^\\d+$" instead of "^\d+$")
2: boolean - ignore case
Search for a regular expression inside a string, ignoring or not ignoring case match("hello there you", "..ll.", false) == true
match("hello there you", "..LL.", false) == false
match("hello there you", "hell$", true) == false
match("hello there you", "^hell", true) == true
match("hello there you", "bye", false) == false
Variable string Search for the value of a variable Variable('some-clone')
Member 0: string - variable name
1: string - member name
Search for the value of a variable member Member('some-clone', 'working-directory')
