Changes for Developers

  • properties object is now directly present in build, and not in build_status. This should not change much unless you try to access your properties via step.build.build_status. Remember that with PropertiesMixin, you can access properties via getProperties on the steps, and on the builds objects.
  • Javascript Data Module is now integrated, which sets a definitive API for accessing buildbot data in angularJS UI. Slave


  • The DockerLatentBuildSlave image attribute is now renderable (can take properties in account).
  • The DockerLatentBuildSlave sets environment variables describing how to connect to the master. Example dockerfiles can be found in master/contrib/docker. Details
