3.5.3. Build

resource type: build
Attributes
  • buildid (integer) – the unique ID of this build

  • number (integer) – the number of this build (sequential for a given builder)

  • builderid (integer) – id of the builder for this build

  • buildrequestid (integer) – build request for which this build was performed, or None if no such request exists

  • workerid (integer) – the worker this build ran on

  • masterid (integer) – the master this build ran on

  • started_at (date) – time at which this build started

  • complete (boolean) – true if this build is complete Note that this is a calculated field (from complete_at != None). Ordering by this field is not optimized by the database layer.

  • complete_at? (date) – time at which this build was complete, or None if it’s still running

  • properties? (sourcedproperties) – a dictionary of properties attached to build.

  • results? (integer) – the results of the build (see Build Result Codes), or None if not complete

  • state_string (string) – a string giving detail on the state of the build.

example

{
    "builderid": 10,
    "buildid": 100,
    "buildrequestid": 13,
    "workerid": 20,
    "complete": false,
    "complete_at": null,
    "masterid": 824,
    "number": 1,
    "results": null,
    "started_at": 1451001600,
    "state_string": "created",
    "properties": {}
}

This resource type describes completed and in-progress builds. Much of the contextual data for a build is associated with the build request, and through it the buildset.

Note

properties

This properties dict is only filled out if the properties filterspec is set.

Meaning that, property filter allows one to request the Builds DATA API like so:

  • api/v2/builds?property=propKey1&property=propKey2 (returns Build’s properties which match given keys)

  • api/v2/builds?property=* (returns all Build’s properties)

  • api/v2/builds?propKey1&property=propKey2&limit=30 (filters combination)

Important

When combined with field filter, to get properties, one should ensure properties field is set.

  • api/v2/builds?field=buildid&field=properties&property=workername&property=user

3.5.3.1. Update Methods

All update methods are available as attributes of master.data.updates.

class buildbot.data.builds.Build
newBuild(builderid, buildrequestid, workerid)
Parameters
  • builderid (integer) – builder performing this build

  • buildrequstid (integer) – build request being built

  • workerid (integer) – worker on which this build is performed

Returns

(buildid, number) via Deferred

Create a new build resource and return its ID. The state strings for the new build will be set to ‘starting’.

setBuildStateString(buildid, state_string)
Parameters
  • buildid (integer) – the build to modify

  • state_string (unicode) – new state string for this build

Replace the existing state strings for a build with a new list.

finishBuild(buildid, results)
Parameters
  • buildid (integer) – the build to modify

  • results (integer) – the build’s results

Mark the build as finished at the current time, with the given results.
