Gitlab shared runner for MAC with tag(saas-macos-medium-m1) is not picking up job

  • Configured MAC runner in workflow and triggered pipeline but getting following error -
    “This job is stuck because of one of the following problems. There are no active runners online, no runners for the protected branch, or no runners that match all of the job’s tags: saas-macos-medium-m1 Go to project CI settings

  • We are using GitLab.com

  • Having following configuration in .gitlab-ci.yml

default:
  tags:
    - windows
    - saas-macos-medium-m1

What could be wrong here?

I am seeing the same thing when trying to set up macos runner through gitlab project settings on ci/cd section.

I ran through the interface, then ran the register prompt. Only way I could get it to work was run gitlab-runner run on my local machine. This is not scalable for a multiple developer pipeline and do not want to add the mac build until we get a hosted runner.

There is little to no guide for setting up these beta saas macos runners provided from gitlab, and was hoping for some clarification through this forum.
