Does the bitbucket-pipelines.yml need to be in every branch ?


I just want to be sure about something that doesn't sound so great to me :

I have my bitbucket-pipelines.yml in my dev branch, but does it need to be in every other branch ? I've set it so it triggers a pipeline on every pull-request, but for every old branch that doesn't yet have the file, nothing is triggered. Is this normal behaviour ?

What scares me a bit, if that's the case, is how are you supposed to manage your pipelines properly ? Like every time you update it, you have to manually propagate that to other branches ?

Thanks for your help.

This is correct. The bitbucket-pipelines.yml file must be in the specified branch in order for it to be run.

The expectation is that branches remain (roughly) in sync. Such as with a feature branching workflow.

What is your branch workflow out of curiosity? Is there a reason you can't keep your branches in sync regularly?
