Check CI status in source project and target project
Hi, gitlab community!
This is my Scenario:
There's a project A configured with CI, runners, etc. (everithing is OK)
There's a fork from project A, let's call it project B, but project B does not have CI and runners configured
Project B sends a MR to A
In the MR page, Gitlab checks for ci_builds in project B, and all builds are PENDING because there's no runners or configurations on project B to handle this
I made a tool that listens webhooks from new Merge Requests in Project A from the forks, get the branch and pushes it to project A in a hidden ref like ref/mr/commit_hash, and I trigger a build to that ref. Untill here it's all perfect, but When I go to MR page I'd like to see the build status in project A too.
I know gitlab stands for security when it does not trigger builds from MR.. I saw on the future plans you will try to implement this as a optional feature on project settings, but for now, this minor improvement on builds check would be good for me and others, since I will open my tool to others that also share my needs.
What do you think?
Sorry for the bad english. Att
