Zuul Client

Zuul includes a simple command line client that may be used to affect Zuul’s behavior while running. It must be run on a host that has access to the Gearman server (e.g., locally on the Zuul host), or on a host with access to Zuul’s web server.

Configuration

The client uses the same zuul.conf file as the server, and will look for it in the same locations if not specified on the command line.

If both sections are present, the gearman section takes precedence over the webclient section, meaning the client will execute commands using the Gearman server over the REST API.

It is also possible to run the client without a configuration file, by using the --zuul-url option to specify the base URL of the Zuul web server.

Note

Not all commands are available through the REST API.

Usage

The general options that apply to all subcommands are:

                        [--newrev NEWREV]

Submit a trigger event

Directly enqueue a trigger event.  This is usually used
to manually "replay" a trigger received from an external
source such as gerrit.

optional arguments:
  -h, --help           show this help message and exit
  --tenant TENANT      tenant name
  --trigger TRIGGER    trigger name
  --pipeline PIPELINE  pipeline name
  --project PROJECT    project name
  --ref REF            ref name
  --oldrev OLDREV      old revision
  --newrev NEWREV      new revision

This command is provided to manually simulate a trigger from an external source. It can be useful for testing or replaying a trigger that is difficult or impossible to recreate at the source. The arguments to enqueue-ref will vary depending on the source and type of trigger. Some familiarity with the arguments emitted by gerrit update hooks such as patchset-created and ref-updated is recommended. Some examples of common operations are provided below.

Manual enqueue examples

It is common to have a release pipeline that listens for new tags coming from gerrit and performs a range of code packaging jobs. If there is an unexpected issue in the release jobs, the same tag can not be recreated in gerrit and the user must either tag a new release or request a manual re-triggering of the jobs. To re-trigger the jobs, pass the failed tag as the ref argument and set newrev to the change associated with the tag in the project repository (i.e. what you see from git show X.Y.Z):

zuul enqueue-ref --tenant openstack --trigger gerrit --pipeline release --project openstack/example_project --ref refs/tags/X.Y.Z --newrev abc123...

The command can also be used asynchronosly trigger a job in a periodic pipeline that would usually be run at a specific time by the timer driver. For example, the following command would trigger the periodic jobs against the current master branch top-of-tree for a project:

zuul enqueue-ref --tenant openstack --trigger timer --pipeline periodic --project openstack/example_project --ref refs/heads/master

Another common pipeline is a post queue listening for gerrit merge results. Triggering here is slightly more complicated as you wish to recreate the full ref-updated event from gerrit. For a new commit on master, the gerrit ref-updated trigger expresses “reset refs/heads/master for the project from oldrev to newrev” (newrev being the committed change). Thus to replay the event, you could git log in the project and take the current HEAD and the prior change, then enqueue the event:

NEW_REF=$(git rev-parse HEAD)
OLD_REF=$(git rev-parse HEAD~1)

zuul enqueue-ref --tenant openstack --trigger gerrit --pipeline post --project openstack/example_project --ref refs/heads/master --newrev $NEW_REF --oldrev $OLD_REF

Note that zero values for oldrev and newrev can indicate branch creation and deletion; the source code is the best reference for these more advanced operations.

Promote

Note

This command is only available through a Gearman connection.

usage: zuul promote [-h] --tenant TENANT --pipeline PIPELINE --changes CHANGES
                    [CHANGES ...]

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  --tenant TENANT       tenant name
  --pipeline PIPELINE   pipeline name
  --changes CHANGES [CHANGES ...]
                        change ids

Example:

zuul promote --tenant openstack --pipeline check --changes 12345,1 13336,3

Note that the format of changes id is <number>,<patchset>.

Show

Note

This command is only available through a Gearman connection.

usage: zuul show [-h] {running-jobs} ...

optional arguments:
  -h, --help      show this help message and exit

show:
  {running-jobs}
    running-jobs  show the running jobs

Example:

zuul show running-jobs

tenant-conf-check

Note

This command is only available through a Gearman connection.

usage: zuul tenant-conf-check [-h]

optional arguments:
  -h, --help  show this help message and exit

Example:

zuul tenant-conf-check

This command validates the tenant configuration schema. It exits ‘-1’ in case of errors detected.

create-auth-token

Note

This command is only available if an authenticator is configured in zuul.conf. Furthermore the authenticator’s configuration must include a signing secret.

usage: zuul create-auth-token [-h] --auth-config AUTH_CONFIG --tenant TENANT
                              --user USER [--expires-in EXPIRES_IN]

Create an Authentication Token for the administration web API

Create a bearer token that can be used to access Zuul's
administration web API. This is typically used to delegate
privileged actions such as enqueueing and autoholding to
third parties, scoped to a single tenant.
At least one authenticator must be configured with a secret
that can be used to sign the token.

optional arguments:
  -h, --help            show this help message and exit
  --auth-config AUTH_CONFIG
                        The authenticator to use. Must match an authenticator
                        defined in zuul's configuration file.
  --tenant TENANT       tenant name
  --user USER           The user's name. Used for traceability in logs.
  --expires-in EXPIRES_IN
                        Token validity duration in seconds (default: 600)

Example:

zuul create-auth-token --auth-config zuul-operator --user alice --tenant tenantA --expires-in 1800

The return value is the value of the Authorization header the user must set when querying a protected endpoint on Zuul’s REST API.
