Pipeline minutes between manual steps on


I am creating a bitbucket-pipelines.yml file that runs on both individual branch commits and in some cases on pull request creation. Some of these have multiple steps where one or more steps has a manual trigger.

- step:
- echo "this is a step that runs automatically"
- step:
trigger: manual
- echo "this is a step that runs manually"

After the first step completes the pipeline just sits there until I manually trigger step two. Can someone confirm whether or not this time between actual steps running incurs pipeline minutes? I assume not but I would like confirmation of this and haven't been able to find it in any of the documentation I read. Thanks! 

(I'm not sure why the formatting of the code is like it is. Rest assured the yml I'm writing is correct and running as expected)

minutes are only incured when a pipeline step is actually running. If you have parallel steps each gets counted separated, we only charge for the time your steps run in our kubernetes cluster.
