Animated cursor displays continuosly on executed pipeline build having 'error' status

dipankardas August 28, 2023

Hello friends,

We made some changes on the bitbucket-pieplines.yml file and checked it into the repository. Due to a syntax error the build failed. However, when we view the details page of the build, we see an animated wait cursor continuously being displayed on the right console log (Build tab), whenever we return to this page at a later time. Does it signify that the thread that ran the build is still hanging around ? If so, how could this be stopped ? I tried several means but it still shows the same animated cursor, even now. Am I missing out on something ?

Any help would be appreciated.

Hey @dipankardas and thank you for reaching out to Community!

When a build step fails with a syntax error, the container is not even started, so you can rest assured that no build container is hung and consuming your build minutes.

The symptom you describe is more of a UI issue, because since the step was not executed, there are no logs to display, but the UI still shows the spinning icon giving the wrong impression that something is still loading.

I went ahead and raised a feature request to improve the UI in such scenarios, and show the message "No logs to display". You can access the feature request using the following link: 

We encourage you to add your Vote there to increase its visibility and also add yourself as a Watcher if you'd like to be notified whenever there's any progress on the implementation of that feature.

Thank you, @dipankardas !
