GitLab CI build plan from URL

I want to use a .gitlab-ci.yml available on a webserver. Is it possible to use a build plan from an external URL or must I have the .gitlab-ci.yml in my repository?

I did not find any information about this in the Documentation.


@bensofficial Welcome to the forum and thanks for the question!

I think you could create a barebones .gitlab-ci.yml file but I have not tested that. The documentation for that is here.

  - remote: <url to .gitlab-ci.yml file>

I hope this helps!

Thank you very much. This was exactly what I was looking for.

Happy to help! There could be some bugginess depending on what that remote file references compared to your project setup but hopefully it works for ya!
