OPNFV CI PIPELINE

OPNFV CI

OPNFV Continuous Integration (CI) project provides the starting point for all OPNFV development activities. It creates a full development environment for OPNFV including automatic build, deployment, and testing.

In order to provide fast and continuous feedback to OPNFV community, CI pipeline utilizes different tools, runs different type of verification activities in different phases depending on the needs of different OPNFV projects and the needs of the OPNFV community.

This document aims to provide information regarding OPNFV CI Pipeline which is currently being enabled for the projects.

CI Pipeline Overview

OPNFV CI Pipeline starts with a change (commit) and stages in the pipeline are triggered based on events that happen while the change travels through the pipeline, producing feedback based on different verification activities.

Below diagram shows overview of the OPNFV CI pipeline.

OPNFV CI Pipeline Overview

Please note that the daily job is neglected on above diagram as the daily job is currently triggered once during night time based on timer, not based on Gerrit events.

Jenkins Jobs in CI Pipeline

Verify Jenkins Job

OPNFV CI Pipeline has verify jobs for all OPNFV Projects in order to run quick verification activities for each and every patchset sent to Gerrit for review.

The main purpose of this job is to keep the quality of codebase on certain level so whoever clones the repo at any given time can get stable version of the software. It also provides feedback regarding the quality of the patchset to developer who submitted the patchset for review, reviewer(s) who are requested to do review(s) and the rest of the OPNFV community, as early as possible.

This job is triggered automatically when developers issue git review command to publish their changes to Gerrit. Gerrit then publishes patchset created event under normal circumstances, triggering the job. If the job fails to trigger or fails during execution for some reason that is not related to patchset itself, developers can retrigger it by adding a new comment to change on Gerrit and include either one of the keywords recheck or reverify.

The result of this job will be verified/failed vote (+1 or -1) on Gerrit. Depending on reviews, the commit can later be submitted to master and merged.

This job does not produce any artifact (document, ISO, etc.).

Please check the diagram below to see how the flow looks.

Verify Jenkins Job

Merge Jenkins Job

OPNFV CI Pipeline has merge jobs for all OPNFV Projects in order to run verification activities for each and every change that gets merged to master.

The main purpose of this job is to give feedback regarding the quality of the master branch once a certain change gets merged to master and the current scope of the job is same as verify job.

This job is triggered automatically by Gerrit change merged event under normal circumstances. If the job fails to trigger or fails during execution for some reason that is not related to patchset itself, developers can retrigger it by adding a new comment to change on Gerrit and include the keyword remerge.

This job currently produces documents and publishes them on OPNFV Artifact Repository.

Please check the diagram below to see how the flow looks.

Merge Jenkins Job

Daily Jenkins Job

OPNFV CI Pipeline has daily jobs for all OPNFV Projects in order to run more extensive verification activities that can take long time to finish.

The main purpose of this job is to run full build, produce artifacts (installer ISOs, etc.), store artifacts in OPNFV Artifact Repository so they can be downloaded to target environment, do the deployment using build artifacts, run tests (Tempest, Robot, etc.) and give feedback regarding the quality of the master branch.

This job is triggered automatically every night 00:00UTC based on timer under normal circumstances. If the job fails to trigger or fails during execution for some reason that is not related to software itself, it can only be retriggered by LF aor Octopus team members.

This job produces build artifacts and documents and publishes them on OPNFV Artifact Repository.

Please check the diagram below to see how the flow looks.
