Is there any contingency plan for an agent to continue running a task without reading the repository on the GitLab server?
Not sure what can be done ... any suggestions ?
At runtime, can I ask the agent to use some cached repository?
sometimes you will have it (as the agent stores a cached copy, but I would hardly count on it (and it might be at different states on different machines...)
... (due to regular maintenance service, something I cannot control).
Maybe let "them" know that CI/CD processes actually count on Git being available ? 🤔
Mmm well, I can think of a pipeline that could save its state in the instant before the error occurred. So that using some crontab/scheduler the pipeline could be resumed at the point where it was stopped in the case of not having been completed. Is there any functionality like this? Something like
