Context & documentation
There is a specific folder that does not need to be tested in our project, so I would like to pen the following
rules: - if: '$CI_PIPELINE_SOURCE == "merge_request_event"' changes: - irrelevant_stuff/**/* when: manual
This works partially
It does have the effect of making the pipeline job manual when things in
irrelevant_stuff is touched, but the problem is that if I touch something in the nearby folder
relevant_stuff which does need to be tested, it still comes up as manual.
Is there a way to make this a strict match pattern?
Is there a way to convey “anything but this folder” so I can put a rule above it saying
anything but this folder -> always run?
For those who may want to say I can pattern match
relevant_stuff, let’s assume there’s too many directories of different depths that are relevant, e.g.
So matching all of these would blow up my YML and also mean the first moment that someone adds
new_relevant_stuff that it would be a manual job again.
Thanks for any thoughts!
