Pipelines: Is it possible to skip clone stage?

I have a custom environment where I would like to use rancher to trigger build-orchestrators which communicate with external services to do actual work.

The “clone” step is unnecessary for my project and will add a substantial delay due to the size of my repository which is over 8Gb.

So I’d like to skip the pipeline clone step completely if possible.


It is possible, see: https://github.com/rancher/rancher/issues/16504#issuecomment-440977389
