3.5.5. Build data

resource type: build_data
Attributes
  • buildid (integer) – id of the build the build data is attached to.

  • name (string) – the name of the build data.

  • length (integer) – the number of bytes in the build data

  • source (string) – a string identifying the source of the data

example

{
    "buildid": 31,
    "name": "stored_data_name",
    "source": "Step XYZ"
}

This resource represents a key-value data pair associated to a build. A build can have any number of key-value pairs. The data is intended to be used for temporary purposes, until the build and all actions associated to it (such as reporters) are finished.

The value is a binary of potentially large size. There are two sets of APIs. One returns the properties of the key-value data pairs, such as key name and value length. Another returns the actual value as binary data.

3.5.5.1. Update Methods

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