Advanced LRM Features
How do I call a Jenkins job remotely?
One possible way to call a Jenkins job remotely is to use cURL. For instance,
will invoke the 'LRMCriticalErrors', a job that checks for critical errors on resource files handled by an LRM project, here 'Acme.Weather', for a given branch, here 'test'.
If you want to get the console output, use the following command after the previous one:
curl -X POST "<JENKINS_URL>/view/Infrastructure/job/LRMCriticalErrors/lastBuild/consoleText"
To be called remotely, a Jenkins job must be configured with a token for the 'Build Trigger Remotely' build trigger, like LGCRITICAL for LRMCriticalErrors.
More Advanced Features
When setting up LRM on your system, a number of Jenkins jobs can then be created as per the on-boarding and take advantage of the out of the box functionality. The list of advanced features is available for LRM knowledgeable users.
Custom Tasks allow a developer to add functionality at certain stages of the LRM pipeline. For instance, before a kit is sent to translation, one may want to add some specific task. This requires knowledge of Java development. See Custom Tasks
