Different bitbucket-pipelines.yml files on different branches



If we have a bitbucket-pipelines.yml file on main branch and some one modifies this file and pushes it to the develop branch, which file would then be executed actually ?

Basically, if we have different conflicting versions of pipelines file on different branches, which one gets executed ?

Hi @Salman Azmat

Welcome to the community.

The YAML (bitbucket-pipelines.yml) configuration for Pipelines is based on branches and it will depend on your YAML triggers.
Initially, once you enabled Pipelines, a YAML file will be added to your main branch.
Once you created a new branch (e.g. develop) from the main branch and pushed a commit to the develop branch, Pipelines will run your YAML file from the develop branch.

Now, Pipelines triggers will vary depending on your YAML trigger configuration.

You can check out this documentation to know more about different ways to trigger a Pipelines build.

In conclusion, if you have different versions of your code for different branches, you will need to maintain your YAML file per branch.

Feel free to let me know if you have further questions that I can help with.
