Integrate Checkov with Bitbucket Cloud Pipelines

You can integrate checkov into your Bitbucket Cloud pipelines. This provides a simple, automatic way of applying policies to your Terraform code both during merge request review and as part of your build process.

Basic Setup

Add a new step in the bitbucket-pipelines.yml file in your repository as part of whichever pipelines are appropriate for you.

Here is a minimalistic example:

checkov: &checkov
    name: Checkov
      name: bridgecrew/checkov:latest
        - '/usr/bin/env'
        - 'PATH=/usr/local/sbin:/usr/local/bin:/usr/sbin:/usr/bin:/sbin:/bin'
      - checkov -d .

    - <<: *checkov

Example Results

When your pipeline executes, it will run this job. If checkov finds any issues, it will fail the build.

Pipeline Failure

For example, I have an S3 bucket that does not have versioning enabled. Checkov detects this and fails the job and pipeline.

Bitbucket Failed Pipeline

This will comment on an associated merge request or fail the build depending on the context.

Pipeline Success

Once I have corrected the configuration, checkov verifies that all is well.
