Pipeline Config: ability to skip whole pipeline or stages based on boolean condition

    Details

    • Similar Issues:

      Description

      A common enough pattern is to skip either a whole pipeline or a stage based on the branch of execution. This is pretty common in deployment focused pipelines, and would be a strong reason to break out of config and that would be a shame.

      It would be nice if this was somewhat first class in pipeline config. Some may be able to be done with a block scoped step... but not clear if all can be.

      A general way of saying "if this boolean condition is false, skip this stage" would be the way to go - a branch matching would be one particular use of this, but the right thing to do is go generic.

            In scope:

            * on-branch declaration as a peer with postBuild or stages
            * same on-branch pattern per stage
