OneTime Pipelines don't run

Occasional Contributor

What is the trick to getting OneTime pipelines to run?


I can create one, and I can see in the Pipelines blade that it is there (the status goes from initialising to running) but the pipeline details blade says 'No activities in this pipeline.'


I am using scoped data sets with a couple of Copy File activities.

I'm having similar issues. I am still trying to figure it out, but I'm pretty sure it's some subset of the following:

- If this is a clone of a pipeline that previously worked, remove the startTime, endTime and policy.

- Maybe the Activity name needs to be unique across pipelines that have previously run?

- It also seems like there's a lag between when you provision the pipeline and when the activity starts, maybe up to 15 minutes.

- I've been making sure to delete previous pipelines before running them in case that helps.


If I figure out the exact magic settings I'll be sure to post them here. I'm definitely poking around in the dark making random changes and hoping they do something.
