The Pipeline History displays a list of all runs executed by a pipeline. It also renders a real time, interactive, diagram of the pipeline and the results of its most current run.

Choosing a Pipeline

To display the Pipeline History, go to Working with Pipelines, then click on one of the pipelines in the list.

Once you are viewing the Pipeline History, you can change which pipeline to display through the dropdown at the top of the view.

Selecting a Branch

When a pipeline source has been configured as multibranch, you can select which branch's pipeline to view through a dropdown at the top of the view.

Viewing a Pipeline

The pipeline diagram is an interactive, visual representation of the pipeline config. Resources are displayed as circular icons, while steps are displayed in rectangles.

You can perform the following operations in the pipeline diagram:

Searching a Pipeline

Click the search icon on the top-left corner to open the search bar. 

The search bar shows the list of objects matching the search text and displays them in a dropdown list.

Once you select an item from the dropdown, the matching item in the diagram will be brought to the center and highlighted with a yellow border. If the item appears in the diagram more than once, you can cycle through them using the arrow icons on the search bar or keyboard shortcuts (enter to iterate forward, shift + enter to iterate backward).

To close the search bar, either click the x icon on the search bar or use the keyboard shortcut esc when the search input is focus.

Filtering a Pipeline

Use the filter field to filter pipelines by status. You can select multiple statuses and all the pipelines matching the selected status is highlighted. In addition, the number of pipelines matching each status is displayed next to the filter field.
