in case of self hosted runners as Linux Docker, Where does pipe run ?

In case of self-hosted runners as Linux Docker,  and I'm using pipe s3 deploy,
Where does the pipe run ? Does it run and create docker images on the host machine or in bitbucket infrastructure agent?

Hello, @Moamen Yousef 

Welcome to the community!

Bitbucket runner uses your infrastructure, which includes pipe, as long as the steps are configured to use the runner in your YAML config.

I hope this helps.


Thank you Syahrul, 
Got it. but can you tell me in case of self-hosted runners as Linux Docker, 
I see that each step an image is pulled and a container is run but I can't see those containers on the host except the one of the runner it self. So, where are these containers run?

Hey @Moamen Yousef 

This is expected since the runner log only shows runner information, and the pipe runs on a docker container. If you wish to see the log, you can run the following commands on your host:

docker logs --details --follow <containerUUID>

When the build is triggered, you can get the container UUID in the runner log. Locate the container UUID that has _build at the end. This should show the whole build logs, which include the pipe.

Also, the container is removed when the build is complete; hence you can't locate it in your host. This can be seen in your runner log, it should mention something similar as this:

I hope this helps.
