Can I Make Pipelines Wait If A Pipeline In Another Repo Rinning?

NZ I'm New Here Aug 17, 2022

Let's say I have two repositories, repository_a and repository_b

Whenever a merge happens in repository_b, a pipeline is triggered to push some code to my cloud service. I would like to a configure it so if a merge happens in repository_b, Bitbucket will check to see no pipelines are running in repository_b and if there are, wait until repository_a's pipeline is done before running the pipeline

Is there an option to do this?

Hi @NZ and welcome to the community.

You mentioned:

Bitbucket will check to see no pipelines are running in repository_b and if there are, wait until repository_a's pipeline ...

I believe you mean that Bitbucket should check if no pipelines are running in repository_a instead? And then wait until repository_a pipelines are finished?

There is no out-of-the-box feature to do this, but you could do it with a script using our API.

You can write a script with a while loop that checks if there are any pipelines with status PENDING, BUILDING or IN_PROGRESS in repository_a.

If there are, wait for e.g. 30 seconds or a different duration (depending on how much time builds in repository_a usually take) and repeat the loop.

When there are no pipelines with these statuses in repository_a, then exit the script.

You can then execute this script at the beginning of the build in repository_b, and when the script exits successfully, the rest of the build's commands will be executed.

You can use the following API endpoint to retrieve pipelines in repository_a

and you can filter by the statuses I mentioned as follows:

https://api.bitbucket.org/2.0/repositories/my-workspace/repository_a/pipelines/?sort=-created_on&status=PENDING&status=BUILDING&status=IN_PROGRESS

where my-workspace replace with the workspace id where repository_a belongs, and repository_a replace with the repo slug for that repo.

Kind regards,
Theodora
