Auto publish from Gitlab not working

you are seeing a different problem @I_Seth - in your logs you see the line Canceled build due to no content change which is the issue - we don’t see any changes within your base directory since the last commit, so our system tries to “save you” some probably unneeded build minutes (cf [Support Guide] How can I optimize my Netlify build time?).

This of course is not helpful to you - you DO have changes you want to publish, I understand! To work around this “our build robots outsmarted themselves” situation (described in more detail here: File-based configuration | Netlify Docs), you can temporarily add a line (if you have an existing file) or section to your netlify.toml:

  ignore = "false"

or if you already have a default ([build] section, you can just add that ignore = "false" line to it. Do that for the first commit in any branch that shows the problem, until you can get a successful build, then you can remove it to allow the optimization to take back over.
