What exactly is the paid feature "Multi-project pipeline visualization"

I can’t figure out what exactly am I missing by using a free tier account when it comes to the Multi-project pipeline visualization.

I created a sample multi-project pipeline here https://gitlab.com/miketaylor1/pipelines/-/pipelines/155628021
and I can very well see some multi-project graph there

What else would I get if I upgraded to the Silver tier?


Based on this documentation, it looks like it adds a widget to the merge request page view to display the downstream pipelines.

yes, that’s also been visualized in the docs. The feature you’re are references between multiple projects, since you can trigger jobs in a different repository to continue, if you do not follow the monorepo approach. Adding these triggers and references can get complex - this is where a better visualization helps customers.

Portions of the trigger keyword have been moved to Core for parent/child pipeline support recently. That is why the downstream pipeline above works for you as well. This was made happen to not overly complicate things, and adds a nice feature for everyone.
