My apologies to all if this is trivial or in the wrong “topic”.
Let’s say I have a single project, “my-common-code”, that is consumed by multiple downstream projects. Currently, within this project’s gitlab-ci.yml, I include multiple issuances of "- curl -X POST ", one for each of the dependent, downstream projects. This presents something of a problem.
Is there a conventional approach to instead, have each downstream project “register/listen” for an update to “my-common-code” and initiate a rebuild accordingly? As we move more quickly within our development process, I would like the common code project to NOT have to be aware of which projects are dependent upon it.
Rather, I would like to devise something of a “tell all watchers of this project that a change has occurred”. I’m hopeful I have missed the mechanism within gitlab, so that I don’t have to do it via an external script.
