Access the pipeline that triggered a sub-pipeline

Hi there, I am new to buildkite and I hope this is not a super dumb question. I am looking at a sub-pipeline that failed and I want to access the pipeline that triggered it so that I can re-run it. However, I can’t see any way to do this from the UI? Is my understanding correct?

This is the only workaround I could find…

  1. Look at the pipeline that it was where it says “Sub-pipeline triggered by”
  2. Copy the name of the pipeline and then paste it to the end of
  3. Then click “New Build”

However, it would be better if I could find the exact pipeline that triggered the failing sub-pipeline and re-run that. Any way to do it? The reason I need this is because the sub-pipeline seemed to have something cached which can only be resolved by re-running the pipeline that calls it (or “New Build”).

Thank you!

Hello, @m0un10!
You were looking in the right place! Under “Triggered from Pipeline,” you can also see the name and link to the build whose pipeline triggered the child pipeline build. You can click on that link, and it will take you to the exact build so that you can rebuild it.

I hope this helps.
