What it does

This action finds & replaces strings in a specified file in the pipeline filesystem. Often used to generate configuration files with pipeline variables from templates stored in the repository.

How it works

This action works like Find & Replace function in text editors. It’s possible to provide unlimited number of strings to find and replace them.

Good to know

This action not only supports one path at a time, but it also supports directories so that it searches & replaces strings in all files under a specified path. If you need to search for more paths, you need to add this action for every file each.
