Trigger Pipeline

Initiate execution of a pipeline from another pipeline.

This step is useful for splitting the automation process in two or more pipelines for better management and reusability of automation.

This step will initiate the pipeline execution and will not wait for pipeline to finish. Pipeline execution will continue running asynchronously.

Parameter

Trigger pipeline when commits are made on specific branch

Microtica allows you to trigger another pipeline only if the parent pipeline was trigged from a specific branch or tag.

This is very useful for use-cases when you want to split pipeline logic in two or more pipelines. For example, you can have one pipeline that runs the build, test and packaging and triggers another pipeline that deploys the code on specific environment (dev, test, prod) based on branch the parent pipeline was triggered from.

Given the above configuration, the pipeline will trigger another pipeline with ID 2efeaf06-7d87-4092-ba66-94877c6f2d47 only if the parent pipeline was triggered from branch develop.

By setting the ref value to develop branch we tell the pipeline to pull the code from develop branch.
