I usually run the CI daily. However, I would like to start a build monthly building the base image which runs the CI environment. Is that possible to start a part of the pipeline monthly (via cron job) or start a named pipeline in multiple pipeline drone.yml file?
In addition, if we can determine in the pipeline what the current cron job name is, the aim can be achieved too.
yes, you can configure limit pipeline execution to named cron jobs:
What if I would like to manually start a build the same as by-cron with the name? (So the logics can be reused, i.e. using custom build with a name or so)
