What Signal Does Bitbucket Pipelines Send to a Step When a Pipeline is Stopped?

When a Pipeline is running, and a user requests that it be stopped, what exactly happens to any steps that are currently running? Do they receive a SIGINT? A SIGKILL? Is there a grace period before a SIGKILL? Is it configurable?

Hello @Johnathan Gilday ,

When a pipeline is stopped, either by the API or UI, the running step will be stopped, and the running processes within that step will be forcefully killed, like a kill -9 command, where it sends a SIGKILL to the processes and forces them to terminate.

Hope that helps to address your question.

Thank you, @Johnathan Gilday .

Kind Regards,

Patrik S

I've never tried this before, but I wonder if the `after-script` is called on STOP as well or not.
