Jenkins with Pagure-ci

Jenkins is a Continuous Integration service that can be configured to be integrated with pagure.

This document describe the steps needed to make it work.

How does it work?

The principal is:

  • pagure will trigger a build on jenkins when a pull-request is created, updated or when someone explicitly asks pagure to do so or when a new commit is pushed (if pagure-ci is configured to trigger on commit).

  • pagure will send a few information to jenkins when triggering a build: REPO, BRANCH, BRANCH_TO, cause.

  • jenkins will do its work and, using webhook, report to pagure that it has finished its task

  • pagure will query jenkins to know the outcome of the task and flag the PR accordingly

REPO corresponds to the url of the repository the pull-request originates from (so most often it will be a fork of the main repository).

BRANCH corresponds to the branch the pull-request originates from (the branch of the fork).

BRANCH_TO corresponds to the targeted branch in the main repository (the branch of the main project in which the PR is to be merged).

cause is the reason the build was triggered (ie: the pull-request id or the commit hash).

How to enable Pagure CI

  • Visit the settings page of your project

  • Scroll down to the Hooks section and click on Pagure CI

  • Select the type of CI service you want

  • Enter the URL of the CI service. For example

  • Enter the name of the job the CI service will trigger. For example pagure-ci

  • Tick the checkbox activating the hook. Either trigger on every commits, trigger only on pull-requests or both every commits and pull-requests.

These steps will activate the hook, after reloading the page or the tab, you will be given access to two important values: the token used to trigger the build on jenkins and the URL used by jenkins to report the status of the build. Keep these two available when configuring jenkins for your project.

Configure Jenkins

These steps can only be made by the admins of your jenkins instance, but they only need to be made once.

Configure your project on Jenkins

  • Go to the Configure page of your project

  • Under Job Notification click Add Endpoint

  • Fields in Endpoint will be :

EVENT: All Events
URL: <The URL provided in the Pagure CI hook on pagure>
LOG: 1
  • Tick the checkbox This build is parameterized

  • Add two String Parameters named REPO and BRANCH

  • Source Code Management select Git and give the URL of the pagure project

  • Under Build Trigger click on Trigger build remotely and specify the token given by pagure.

  • Under Build -> Add build step -> Execute Shell

  • In the box given enter the shell steps you want for testing your project.

Example Script

# Script specific for Pull-Request build
if [ -n "$REPO" -a -n "$BRANCH" ]; then
git remote rm proposed || true
git remote add proposed "$REPO"
git fetch proposed
git checkout origin/master
git config --global ""
git config --global "Your Name"
git merge --no-ff "proposed/$BRANCH" -m "Merge PR"

# Part of the script specific to how you run the tests on your project
