Working with Google git-repo


Repo is a tool which is built on top of Git. QuickBuild utilizes the repo command to interact with remote git-repo repository. If this command is not in system path, you will need to specify location of the command by configuring Repo plugin as below:

Further more, git-repo command (repo) location can be specified on a per-node basis by following below steps:

  1. Open Repo plugin setting page and define the repo path property as:
  2. For each node that does not have git-repo on system path, define the user attribute repoPath to point to the actual repo command path like below:

NOTE: example above is just for demonstration, you can use any other user attribute name instead of repoPath.

As git-repo is built on top of git, the Git plugin and git command should be also configured properly. Please refer to Working with Git page for details.

Creating a Repo Repository

You may refer to this page on how to add a repository.

  • http[s]://host.xz[:port]/path/to/repo.git/
  • ftp[s]://host.xz[:port]/path/to/repo.git/

If https is used, and your credential need password, you need first add the credential manually to the nodes which you want check out code to.
