  • Your pipeline is somehow messed up. You are not supposed to take care of which code-revision you are building on in the jobs. the whole git-stuff seems wrong to me. Gitlab takes care of the code itself and always provides a clean codebase to all jobs. if you want to carry over artifacts from previous jobs you should use artifacts and dependencies docs.gitlab.com/ee/user/project/pipelines/job_artifacts.html

Within the project

  • go to CI / CD -> Pipelines
  • press Run Pipeline
  • under Create for choose the branch or tag you want to run the pipeline for
  • press Create Pipeline

Now to trigger a manual Job you can use the jobs of the recently created pipeline.
