Adds ability to choose branches, tags or revisions from git repository configured in project.
This plugin allows you to assign git branch, tag, pull request or revision number as parameter in your builds.
There is no need to set up anything special in plugin settings.
This plugin will read GIT SCM configuration from your projects.
This plugin used directly the Git Plugin and Git Client Plugin.
Example pipeline script
Important! version 0.9.4 or later
Branch type - Basic usage
- It should be set a default value because initial build must get this information
- Using git should be set a branchFilter as 'origin/(.*)' (origin is a remote server name)
Important: If you need use other type (other then branch) parameter, you must use git within checkout
Branch Tag type
Pull Requst type
Explains about PT_TAG or PT_BRANCH or PT_BRANCH_TAG:
Plugin using git ls-remote command to get remote tags or branches, this solution was implemented in - JENKINS-40232Getting issue details... STATUS . This has been done for performance reasons. The plugin does not have to featch the repository before getting information
You can select the following sorting options for tags/revision/branches/branches_or_tags/pull requests
- ascending smart
- descending smart
For the smart variants the compare treats a sequence of digits as a single character. Contributed by Graeme Hill.
In release 0.9.9 or later good to set a default value, because this value is using in the initial build (in Pipeline).
Default value is returned when some error occurred on getting data.
Remember: You don't set a git repository into the plugin, this plugin using git repositories which are defined in project in SCM section!
If in the task are defined multiple repositories, this option specifies which the repository is taken into account on getting data.
If the option is not defined, is taken a first defined repository.
This option is a regular expression, which is compared to the 'Repository URL'.
You can define the multiple SCM for few way, you can use Multiple SCMs Plugin, specified many 'Repository URL' in one SCM or define them in pipeline.
Consider an example based on two repositories:
After initial run you get
Example when 'Use repository' is not set:
After initial run you get
Release 0.9.9 or later
Release 0.9.9 or later
If an error occurred while retrieving data, the default value is returned.
Additional information is provided below, along with the cause of the error.
This error will occurred when repository is not configured or 'Use repository' option no match with any repository.
This error will occurred when repository not exists or URL is wrong.
This error will occurred when is no ssh command on Jenkins master.
