Is there a way to make manual build step ask for input parameters

Hello,
Is there a way to make manual build step ask for input parameters.
I need to update deployment step to support deployment of specific build , not the latest one that was build.
If I trigger it via api, I can supply a variable.
Is there a way to prompt for the variable value when initiating manual build step from gitlab web ui ?

Hi,

please try your setup first, it already exists. Pipelines > Run Pipeline.

yep, but you have to know variable names somehow. We want to define (in the pipeline) needed variable names and/or pre-defined values (dropdown) to set, default values.

This would be a great feature where you could setup the variables to set and make it like a form similar to build with parameters pipeline setup in Jenkins.

@sharkymcdongles Please add your thoughts to these feature requests, and maybe add a screenshot from Jenkins to clarify :slight_smile: Meanwhile I’ve linked this topic there.

@dnsmichi Basically something similar to this:

Use case is it would allow for creating essentially a form to allow non techy people to run super complex builds they otherwise would be unable to touch.

Do we have any update on this implementation.

Hi,

this was released in GitLab 13.7: GitLab 13.7 released with merge request reviewers and automatic rollback upon failure | GitLab
