Do all international airlines automatically transfer checked in baggage to connecting airlines on different airlines ( non codeshare/alliances )? How do they do it?

I am travelling from Mumbai, India to Hanoi, Vietnam through a connecting flight in Bangkok, Thailand. Since my flights are on Air India and Vietnam Airlines, I suddenly wondered how my checked in baggage would get transferred.
Would it get automatically transferred or would I have to get out of the airport and get back in?
The sites which I found by searching on google only mentioned about domestic flights and not international ones. It would be really interesting to know how airlines manage the logistics
