3.5.18. step

resource type: step
Attributes
  • stepid (integer) – the unique ID of this step

  • buildid (integer) – id of the build containing this step

  • complete (boolean) – true if this step is complete

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

  • hidden (boolean) – true if the step should not be displayed

  • name (identifier) – the step name, unique within the build

  • number (integer) – the number of this step (sequential within the build)

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

  • started_at? (date) – time at which this step started, or None if it hasn’t started yet

  • state_string (string) – a string giving detail on the state of the build. The first is usually one word or phrase; the remainder are sized for one-line display.

  • urls[] – a list of URLs associated with this step.

This resource type describes a step in a build. Steps have unique IDs, but are most commonly accessed by name in the context of their containing builds.

3.5.18.1. Update Methods

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

class buildbot.data.steps.Step
newStep(buildid, name)
Parameters
  • buildid (integer) – buildid containing this step

  • name (50-character identifier) – name for the step

Returns

(stepid, number, name) via Deferred

Create a new step and return its ID, number, and name. Note that the name may be different from the requested name, if that name was already in use. The state strings for the new step will be set to ‘pending’.

startStep(stepid)
Parameters

stepid (integer) – the step to modify

Start the step.

setStepStateString(stepid, state_string)
Parameters
  • stepid (integer) – the step to modify

  • state_string (unicode) – new state strings for this step

Replace the existing state string for a step with a new list.

addStepURL(stepid, name, url):
Parameters
  • stepid (integer) – the step to modify

  • name (string) – the url name

  • url (string) – the actual url

Returns

None via deferred

Add a new url to a step. The new url is added to the list of urls.

finishStep(stepid, results, hidden)
Parameters
  • stepid (integer) – the step to modify

  • results (integer) – the step’s results

  • hidden (boolean) – true if the step should not be displayed

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