As per the documentation: Keyword reference for the `.gitlab-ci.yml` file | GitLab
I am trying to setup my pipeline to run when there is a merge request to “main” (default branch).
I am using GitLab SaaS.
My .gitlab-ci.yml looks like this:
include: - local: 'aws/prod/.gitlab-ci.yml' - local: 'aws/dev/.gitlab-ci.yml' - template: 'Workflows/MergeRequest-Pipelines.gitlab-ci.yml' cache: key: $CI_COMMIT_REF_SLUG paths: - aws/prod/.terraform/ - aws/prod/.terraform.lock.hcl - aws/dev/.terraform/ - aws/dev/.terraform.lock.hcl stages: - plan - deploy
When I commit directly to main, everything works fine. But when I open a MR, the pipeline never executes. Instead, I’m stuck with a swirling “Checking pipeline status”.
I’ve tried not using the template and specifying workflow rules directly (at the top level .gitlab-ci.yml and lower level ones and a combination of both). I’ve used CI Lint to confirm everything looks good. I’ve tried using the
if: $CI_PIPELINE_SOURCE == "merge_request_event" rule. I’ve tried killing any MRs and branches and recreating from main. Nothing works.
