Buildbot no longer supports Python 2.7 on the Buildbot master.
This page documents the latest, unreleased version of Buildbot. For documentation for released versions, see http://docs.buildbot.net/current/.
2.5.11. Build Steps¶
BuildSteps are usually specified in the buildmaster’s configuration file, in a list that goes into the
BuildStep instances in this list are used as templates to construct new independent copies for each build (so that state can be kept on the
BuildStep in one build without affecting a later build).
BuildFactory can be created with a list of steps, or the factory can be created empty and then steps added to it using the
from buildbot.plugins import util, steps f = util.BuildFactory() f.addSteps([ steps.SVN(repourl="http://svn.example.org/Trunk/"), steps.ShellCommand(command=["make", "all"]), steps.ShellCommand(command=["make", "test"]) ])
The basic behavior for a
BuildStep is to:
run for a while, then stop
possibly invoke some RemoteCommands on the attached worker
possibly produce a set of log files
finish with a status described by one of four values defined in
provide a list of short strings to describe the step
The rest of this section describes all the standard
BuildStep objects available for use in a
Build, and the parameters which can be used to control each.
A full list of build steps is available in the Build Step Index.
The following build steps are available:
Source checkout steps - used to checkout the source code
Other source-related steps - used to perform non-checkout source operations
ShellCommand steps - used to perform various shell-based operations
Trigger - triggering other builds
Python build steps - used to perform Python-related build operations
Debian build steps - used to build
RPM build steps - used to build
Transferring Files - used to perform file transfer operations
HTTP Requests - used to perform HTTP requests
Worker Filesystem Steps - used to perform filesystem operations on the worker
Master steps - used to perform operations on the build master
