Problem to solve

I have a central-ci repository which has a python file and gitlab-ci.yaml file, I run the central-ci.yaml file using a trigger to create the artifacts, however when I download the artifacts in my project and try to unzip it I am facing error. I have followed all the steps specified in the gitlab document.

  • What are you seeing, and how does that differ from what you expect to see?
  • Consider including screenshots, error messages, and/or other helpful visuals

Steps to reproduce

  1. Create a central-repo and have a git-ci.yaml file within it, create a job to upload artifacts
  2. Trigger the pipeline through another job and download the artifact in another job, when you try to unzip the artifact it will throw an error.

Which troubleshooting steps have you already taken? Can you link to any docs or other resources so we know where you have been?


Add the CI/CD configuration from .gitlab-ci.yml and other configuration if relevant (e.g. docker-compose.yml). Alternatively, create a public example project that provides all necessary files to reproduce the question.
