I try to run my merge request pipelines only if the target is a protected branch but fail to achieve my goal.
This is my approach:
workflow: rules: - if: $CI_PIPELINE_SOURCE == "merge_request_event" && $CI_MERGE_REQUEST_TARGET_BRANCH_PROTECTED - if: $CI_COMMIT_BRANCH && $CI_OPEN_MERGE_REQUESTS when: never - if: $CI_COMMIT_BRANCH == $CI_DEFAULT_BRANCH
This approach runs all the time nevertheless if the target branch is protected or not.
Can someone please enlighten me what I’m doing wrong. That would be much appreciated!
