Pipeline trigger run fails

Steven Delrue May 10, 2022

When running a trigger in bitbucket pipelines, I get this error :

 Error: {"error": {"message": "Bad request", "detail": "bitbucket-pipelines.yml not found.", "data": {"key": "result-service.pipeline.yml-not-found", "arguments": {}}}}

The repo which should trigger the pipeline is a private team repo, but I should have all the rights (I can read & write to the repo)

This is bitbucket-pipelines.yml: 

      - step:
          name: Trigger Boilerplate & Xperify Build (development)
            - pipe: atlassian/trigger-pipeline:5.0.0
                REPOSITORY: oculariumfrontendboilerplate
                REF_TYPE: 'branch'
                REF_NAME: 'development'
            - pipe: atlassian/trigger-pipeline:5.0.0
                REPOSITORY: ocularium-frontend-xperify
                REF_TYPE: 'branch'
                REF_NAME: 'development'

The app password I generated has the correct permissions set

Hi @Steven Delrue

Thank you for reaching out to the community.

Based on the error message, it seems there's no recognized file (bitbucket-pipelines.yml) in the "development" branch of your private repository.

Would it be possible for you to check if the file (bitbucket-pipelines.yml) exists in the private repository "development" branch?
You can use this link to check it, just change it with your workspace ID and repository name:

Let me know how it goes.

It turns out that the problem was that the bitbucket-pipelines.yml file was present in the target repository (the repo which is getting triggered), but it didn't contain a pipeline matching the development branch.

@Steven Delrue sorry, Im new at this, could you clarify what you mean with "a pipeline matching the development branch"?

Im having the exact same issue.

Hi @Steven Delrue .

Also please check that you enabled pipeline support in your triggered repository.
