On and off I’ve played around with Firebase and one thing I had never tried out was the hosting part of Google’s offering. I spent a bit of time a few nights ago getting familiar with it and didn’t like the fact that I had to deploy from the command line as I generally like to do my deployments via git.
This excellent blog post showed me what I needed to do and everything seemed easy enough. Here is my original pipeline.yml
image: node:8.4.0 pipelines: branches: master: - step: deployment: production caches: - node script: - npm install -g firebase-tools - firebase deploy --token=$FIREBASE_TOKEN --project mySite --non-interactive
When my pipeline ran I received the following error.
Error: Authorization failed. This account is missing the following required permissions on project <project>: firebase.projects.get firebasehosting.sites.update
The issue was resolved when I looked at the –project parameter. Everything I read said project name, but in reality it needs to be the project ID, which you can get from Firebase project console. Once this was rectified the pipeline ran succesfully.
