Changing the event type on manually started builds

My pipelines are written in away that they execute when there’s a push to specific branches. Recently we needed to start pipelines manually and we found that it’s possible doing that from drone’s API Build Create but the problem now is that the event type is custom not push which is the reason that steps are not running. So is there someway to change the event type of a manually created build?

manually triggered builds will always have the custom event type, however, you can update your pipeline steps to accept multiple event types accordingly

  - push
  - custom

I just wanted to clarify if that is possible or not. Thanks a lot for your help.
