3.8.5. Build data connector

class buildbot.db.build_data.BuildDataConnectorComponent

This class handles build data. Build data is potentially large transient text data attached to the build that the steps can use for their operations. One of the use cases is to carry large amount of data from one step to another where storing that data on the worker is not feasible. This effectively forms a key-value store for each build. It is valid only until the build finishes and all reporters are done reporting the build result. After that the data may be removed from the database.

An instance of this class is available at master.db.build_data.

Builds are indexed by build_dataid and their contents represented as build_datadicts (build data dictionaries), with the following keys:

  • id (the build data ID, globally unique)

  • buildid (the ID of the build that the data is attached to)

  • name (the name of the data)

  • value (the value of the data. It must be an instance of bytes)

  • source (an string identifying the source of this value)

setBuildData(buildid, name, value, source)
Parameters
  • buildid (integer) – build id to attach data to

  • name (unicode) – the name of the data

  • value (bytestr) – the value of the data as bytes.

Parma unicode source

the source of the data

Returns

Deferred

Adds or replaces build data attached to the build.

getBuildData(buildid, name)
Parameters
  • buildid (integer) – build id retrieve data for

  • name (unicode) – the name of the data

Returns

Build data dictionary as above or None, via Deferred

Get a single build data, in the format described above, specified by build and by name. Returns None if build has no data with such name.

getBuildDataNoValue(buildid, name)
Parameters
  • buildid (integer) – build id retrieve data for

  • name (unicode) – the name of the data

Returns

Build data dictionary as above or None, via Deferred

Get a single build data, in the format described above, specified by build and by name. The value field is omitted. Returns None if build has no data with such name.

getAllBuildDataNoValues(buildid, name=None)
Parameters
  • buildid (integer) – build id retrieve data for

  • name (unicode) – the name of the data

Returns

a list of build data dictionaries

Returns all data for a specific build. The values are not loaded. The returned values can be filtered by name

deleteOldBuildData(older_than_timestamp)
Parameters

older_than_timestamp (integer) – the build data whose build’s complete_at is older than older_than_timestamp will be deleted.

Returns

Deferred

Delete old build data (helper for the build_data_horizon policy). Old logs have their build data deleted from the database as they are only useful while build is running and shortly afterwards.
