We have a release bot user, which was created using a Project Access Token, which tags new versions of our product. This tag creates a new pipeline, which triggers a manual job that executes a downstream pipeline to run our automated tests in another repository. The downstream pipeline fails to run with the error “(unknown failure)”. We suspect that this is due to the user not having permissions to trigger pipelines in the downstream project, since your documentation states “The user triggering the upstream pipeline must be able to start pipelines in the downstream project, otherwise the downstream pipeline fails to start.” When retrying this downstream job manually, it works.
How can we solve this issue?
