Multi-project trigger runs on manual trigger, but not on scheduled run

I am using gitlab SaaS and my pipeline runs, retrieves information about downstream jobs from a database, then calls the API to trigger another project’s CI. When I run it on a schedule it fails, but when I run it manually, it succeeds. Any ideas on what could be going on?

Here’s a picture of the CI jobs

thanks in advance!
