Can a pipeline trigger from multiple repositories?

I'm currently working on a project with Bitbucket Cloud that uses Google Repo ( to manage multiple repositories within the project.  Is it possible to configure pipelines such that a commit to any repository in the project will trigger "the build"?  I'm used to doing this with Bamboo, but I'm not sure how to set this up with pipelines in the cloud.

The project is build on Yocto ( which has layers from multiple repositories.  The individual repositories can't be built independently.  I'm using Google's Repo tool to fetch all of the repositories before running the build script that is in one of the repositories, but needs all of the repositories to build successfully.  

My goal is to run the one build if any of the repositories get a commit pushed to them.  

The REST API might be a good solution.  I'll look into that. Thanks.

Could you explain your set up a bit more and why you would like to trigger another repository from a push?

A possible way is to trigger another repository is by using our REST API

from your pipeline steps.

Joshua, Shaun,

If trigger through the API using an app password, what would be the permissions given to the app password?
