    • By default: all jobs are accepted.

  3. Running: the pipeline has been picked by a runner that is currently executing its tasks.
  4. Succeeded: the execution of the pipeline ended and all tasks were successful.
  5. Failed: the execution of the pipeline ended and some of the tasks failed.
    • The pipeline is considered failed, when at least one task fails.
    • When you ignore errors in tasks to not stop the pipeline, if they fail, the pipeline is considered failed even if the execution of the last task is successful.
  6. Terminated: the pipeline has been stopped by a user.
