You need to either configure the runner to run untagged jobs, or tag your job to use the runner.

To configure the runner to run untagged jobs:

  1. Go to the project’s Settings > CI/CD and expand the Runners section.
  2. Find the runner you want to pick untagged jobs and make sure it’s enabled.
  3. Click the pencil button.
  4. Check the Run untagged jobs option.
  5. Click the Save changes button for the changes to take effect.
