5.0 quality score

We run a couple of automated
scans to help you access a
module's quality. Each module is
given a score based on how well
the author has formatted their
code and documentation and
modules are also checked for
malware using VirusTotal.

puppetfinland/buildbot — version 2.2.0 Jun 28th 2018


A Puppet module for managing buildbot

Tested operating systems are listed in metadata.json, but it is likely that more recent Debian and Fedora versions work as well or with minor modifications. Note that Fedora 24 does not have a unit file for starting buildslaves, but you can work around that issue by simply including the Puppet-Finland/monit class which will ensure that buildbot is always running.

Module usage

Setting up buildslaves is fairly easy using Hiera. First setup some sane defaults (e.g. in common.yaml):

buildbot::default_buildmaster_address: ''
buildbot::default_email: ''
buildbot::default_admin: 'John Doe'

Then create a buildslave:

    - buildbot

        buildslave_remote_name: 'slave-ubuntu-1604-amd64'
        buildslave_password: 'secret-password'
        buildslave_local_name: 'myproject'
        buildbot_user: 'root'
        index: 1

The index parameter is only needed on Debian/Ubuntu. For further details see these classes and defines:
