Why can't the first step be manual in bitbucket pipeline? Can we add some random step to bypass it?

The first step of your bitbucket-pipelines.yml cannot be manual. Please remove this trigger from you

@Sudip Bhandari what is your use case for wanting to have a manual step appear first in your pipeline? You can configure custom steps (see ), and execute these against any branch in your repository manually as needed.

The usecase is to avoid wasting build time for every commit we make

A more useful use case is to manually deploy only certain artifacts.  In deployment using a multi module maven project maybe you only want to deploy one or two or 5 etc...  Being limited to a step by step deployment to get to the 5th project makes this unusable
