Main pipeline stuck in pending status it triggers a child pipeline without strategy depends
Linking pipelines with trigger:strategy mentioned that
By default, the trigger job completes with the success status as soon as the downstream pipeline is created.
To force the trigger job to wait for the downstream (multi-project or child) pipeline to complete, use strategy: depend
which will force the job to wait for the triggered pipeline to complete. But the current behavior is that the job without
strategy:depends will wait forever even though the triggered pipeline is completed cause thing main pipeline to stuck in Pending status.
Steps to reproduce
- Setup project A and project B where job in project A trigger a pipeline in project B without
- Start pipeline in project A
- Observe the job for triggering pipeline stuck in waiting state
stages: - build - test - stage - verify - deploy e2e:check: stage: verify before_script: - echo "e2e check b4 script" script: - echo "e2e check script" allow_failure: true e2e:cb: stage: verify allow_failure: true trigger: project: gitlab-gold/triggered-pipeline
The main pipeline stuck in pending stage because the job status was not updated.
After successfully triggering the pipeline, the job status immediately update to success without waiting for the triggered pipeline to complete.

Trigger pipeline with API but this workaround doesn't allow the main pipeline to see the child pipeline in the main pipeline page.
