Initiate execution of a pipeline from another pipeline.
This step is useful for splitting the automation process in two or more pipelines for better management and reusability of automation.
This step will initiate the pipeline execution and will not wait for pipeline to finish. Pipeline execution will continue running asynchronously.
steps: step-name: type: trigger-pipeline pipeline: "2efeaf06-7d87-4092-ba66-94877c6f2d47" # pipeline ID branch_filter: master # optional ref: refs/heads/master # optional
|title||The display name of the step.||No|
|type||The type of the Microtica built-in step.|
Should always be trigger-pipeline for this type of step.
|pipeline||The ID of an existing pipeline to be triggered.||Yes|
|branch_filter||Initiate pipeline execution only for commit/manual trigger on specified branch.|
If not specified, pipeline will be triggered on every pipeline execution.
E.g. develop, feature/upgrade-eks etc.
|ref||Branch or tag ref the triggered pipeline should pull the code from.|
#Trigger pipeline when commits are made on specific branch
Microtica allows you to trigger another pipeline only if the parent pipeline was trigged from a specific branch or tag.
This is very useful for use-cases when you want to split pipeline logic in two or more pipelines. For example, you can have one pipeline that runs the build, test and packaging and triggers another pipeline that deploys the code on specific environment (dev, test, prod) based on branch the parent pipeline was triggered from.
steps: Clone: title: Clone my source code from Git type: git-clone BuildAndTest: title: Build and test my service image: node:12-alpine commands: - npm install - npm run build TriggerAnotherPipeline: title: Trigger my deployment pipeline type: trigger-pipeline pipeline: "2efeaf06-7d87-4092-ba66-94877c6f2d47" # pipeline ID branch_filter: develop ref: refs/heads/develop
Given the above configuration, the pipeline will trigger another pipeline with ID 2efeaf06-7d87-4092-ba66-94877c6f2d47 only if the parent pipeline was triggered from branch develop.
By setting the ref value to develop branch we tell the pipeline to pull the code from develop branch.
