Long Running CI - Robot Framework

Hi Folks,

We have now configured a whole host of Pipeline Steps using BB, and now I would like to integrate our Robot framework Tests for Regression testing. Although it is technically possible to do this via the Provided Bitbucket Pipelines, I need to solve a few issues:

1. Often the regression test will take in excess of 120mins, in this case Bitbucket will Fail the step

2. The long-running process consumes Build Minutes at a rate greater than my Coffee consumption.

My initial working theory, was to offload the Testing to an EC2 Instance, and initiate the Run using the ssh-run pipe.

The trouble with this, is that the pipe will wait until execution has completed (See Point 1 & 2)

So, how can I initiate execute a script on a remote host, pause / stop the pipeline, update the status later once complete without consuming unnecessary build minutes or exceeding the time limit.
