Default pipeline type

Hi all, I’m new to Drone. In our .drone.yml file I see we have a pipeline at the top with a name and a kind but it has no type. My questions in - what type is it then? I checked your docs but could not find the answer there.


Here is a brief explanation of purpose of the type field:

The Pipeline object defines a Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery pipeline. The type attribute defines the runner that should be used when executing the pipeline. Drone offers support for a variety of runners.

And here is a brief explanation of why it is not technically a required field, but should be treated as such when creating new pipelines:

Ok, thanks. So the default is docker…that’s what I was thinking. And yeah it would be nice if it were required :slight_smile: Thanks for your quick help!
