Is it possible to use self-hosted runners combined with the cloud runners?

ewout_van_gossum August 1, 2022

I just got some self-hosted runners working which is great, but it seems like the runs-on configuration in the bitbucket-pipelines.yml makes it run exclusively on self-hosted runners?

Is it possible to run on the cloud if the self-hosted runners are offline? (if not, this would be a great feature!)

Hi @ewout_van_gossum 

Welcome to the community!

Currently,  the pipeline build will fail automatically when the build is unable to communicate with the runner, and we don't have a failover that will let the build run on the Bitbucket pipeline when this happens. Unless you manually remove the runs-on: in YAML to let Bitbucket pipeline know that you are not using runner anymore.

We do have an existing feature request on this at:

I highly suggest you Vote & Watch the feature request so that you'll receive an update whenever we have any.

I hope this helps
