Schedule a pipeline every X hours

Use case: we would like to schedule a deployment pipeline every X hours.

Bitbucket pipelines allows us to schedules pipelines once per hour, once per day or once per week.

In our case once per hour is too frequent (costing too much in terms of build minutes), and once a day is not frequent enough.

Is there a way to schedule a pipeline to run, let's say, every 3 hours?

Hi @Patrick and welcome to the community.

I'm afraid that at the moment it is not possible to schedule a pipeline every X hours.

We have a feature request for this in our issue tracker:

I would suggest that you add your vote there (by selecting the Vote for this issue link) as the number of votes helps the development team and product managers better understand the demand for new features. You are more than welcome to leave any feedback, and you can also add yourself as a watcher (by selecting the Start watching this issue link) if you'd like to get notified via email on updates.

Implementation of new features is done as per our policy here and any updates will be posted in the feature request.

In the meantime, one workaround I could suggest would be to create a script that triggers your pipeline using our API (this doc has several examples):

and then set up e.g. a cron job in one of your machines that runs this script every 3 hours.

Please feel free to let me know if you have any questions.

Kind regards,
