It’s very simple to create your own Workflow with the Workflow Editor. You can create new Workflows based on any of the existing ones, or you can simply create an empty Workflow and add the Steps yourself.
If, for example, you create a Workflow based on your primary one, it means that it will be created with the exact same Steps and input values as the primary Workflow.
- Click the app’s Workflow tab. Note that you cannot leave the Workflow Editor without either saving or discarding any changes you made.
Click + Workflow.
Select the Workflow you want to use as the basis for the new one.
Alternatively, choose the Empty workflow option to create an empty Workflow.
Give a name to your Workflow. The name can be as long as you wish since longer titles get broken into multiple lines so that you can read the whole title conveniently.
- Add the Steps you need to your Workflow. Click the + symbol between two Steps to insert a Step at that position. Remove Steps you do not need by clicking on the Step and clicking the little trash bin symbol.
- Click Save in the top right corner.
The configuration format of the Bitrise CLI is referred to as bitrise.yml. This is the expected file name the configuration should be saved with.
A Step encapsulates a "build task": the code to perform that task, the inputs and parameters you can define for the task, and the outputs the task generates.
A Workflow is a collection of steps, environment variables, and other configurations for a single bitrise run.
