Pipeline intermittent lint failures
only:/except:/rules make sure the needs job has the same rule as the predecessor job
Intermittent pipeline lint failures. Many times, the next commit will cause the pipeline to run. Testing the yaml with the lint tool does now show any issues.
What is the current bug behavior?
Here's a minimal config to reproduce the error:
image: busybox build_job: stage: build script: - ls -lh only: refs: - master changes: - test_file.txt test_job: stage: test script: - ls -lh needs: - build_job only: refs: - master
build_jobis created only when the
test_file.txtfile changes on
test_jobis created on all the changes that are pushed on
only: rules are applied during build time and they prevent the
build_job from being created and the
need: with throw an error:
So pushing any changes on
master that don't change
test_file.txt would result in an
yaml invalid error.
What is the expected correct behavior?
The error message should be more helpful in debugging this error. We should update the error message to say that the required jobs might have been removed by
Running Gitlab 11.0.2 with runner 0.11.0.
