Are you using the 'Publish to repository' option in the Branch Explorer?

  1. Open Application Explorer
  2. Click on the Branches tab
  3. Right-click on your branch and select ‘Publish to repository’

The repository you use for publishing the branch should be a Pega repository and the Authentication Profile used should have your application.

Also, when you view the XML for the DATA-PIPELINE-CONFIGURATION instance, do you see pyStartBuildOnBranchMerge set to true?
I found a bug item in our system where editing the pipeline to change the 'Trigger build on merge' property did not update the pyStartBuildOnBranchMerge value. This has been fixed in 7.4. This would only apply if you had initially created the pipeline without the option checked.

Hi Carissa, Yes I have tried publishing branch to pega repository, but getting following error message - Branch was successfully published. CICD was unable to kick off a pipeline on the orchestration server.

Yes I checked the XML view of the DATA-PIPELINE-CONFIGURATION instance and pyStartBuildOnBranchMerge  is set to true!
