Variables in plugin args

I’d like to update GitHub status via API. So I tried to use webhook plugin like this:

- name: set-pending
  image: plugins/webhook
    content_type: application/json
      from_secret: GITHUB_USERNAME
      from_secret: GITHUB_TOKEN
    template: |
         "status": "pending"
         "description": "from hook"

It failed because variables are not expanded. Is there any way to use plugins with variables ? If no it would be very nice to have. If it’s hard to use regular bash-like interpolation template syntax would also suffice, something like

 template:  |{{ env.CI_REPO_NAME}}/statuses/{{ env.CI_COMMIT_SHA }}

Is there any way to set plugin option from previous step ?

There is no generic way to set plugin variables from previous steps. A plugin could choose to read parameters from disk, but that would be the responsibility of the plugin.
