How do you stop a MacOS runner?

Sorry if this is the wrong place to post this, but don't know where the posts are suppose to be for MacOs.

CTRL-C doesn't seem to work to end the runner. I have to go to the activity list to find the runner and kill it from there.

Hi @Bob Swift _Appfire_ ,


Thanks for raising thus issue, our engineering team have looked into it. There is an issue with the script that starts up the runner. We are able to replicate the issue and working on the fix.
In the meanwhile if you want to stop the runner you can either

  1. kill it the way you had done earlier
  2. use the following to start the runner from the terminal and use "ctrl+c" to stop it:

    java \
    -jar \
    -Dbitbucket.pipelines.runner.account.uuid=$accountUuid \
    -Dbitbucket.pipelines.runner.repository.uuid=$repositoryUuid \
    -Dbitbucket.pipelines.runner.uuid=$runnerUuid \$OAuthClientId \
    -Dbitbucket.pipelines.runner.oauth.client.secret=$OAuthClientSecret \$workingDirectory \
    -Dbitbucket.pipelines.runner.environment=PRODUCTION \
    -Dbitbucket.pipelines.runner.runtime=macos-bash \
    -Dbitbucket.pipelines.runner.scheduled.state.update.initial.delay.seconds=0 \
    -Dbitbucket.pipelines.runner.scheduled.state.update.period.seconds=30 \
    -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8 \
    -Dsun.jnu.encoding=UTF-8 \

Please let us know if you have any other issues.
