Hi All, Before PTG, we were discussing about Job Template and irrelevant files issues on multiple mailing thread .
Both things does not work as expected and it leads to run the jobs on irrelevant files also and on excluded branch. In Dublin PTG, during infra help hours on Tuesday, we had talk on this topic and to find the best approach. First of all thanks to Jim for explaining the workflow of zuulv3 about selecting and integrating the matched jobs. How jobs are being matched and how variables like branch and irrelevant-files are being taken care between job definition and job template and project's pipeline list. Current issue (explained in ML ) is with the integrated-gate job template  where integrated job like tempest-full are being run. Other job template like 'system-required', 'openstack-python-jobs' etc. After discussion, It is found more complicated to solve these issues as of now and it might take time for Jim/infra team to come up with better way to handle job template and irrelevant_files/branch var etc. We talked about few possibilities like one way is to supersede the job template defined var by project's pipeline list. For example if irrelevant_files are defined by both job template and project's pipelines then ignore/skip the job template values of that var or all var. But this is just idea and not sure how feasible and best it can be. But till the best approach/solution is ready, we need to have some workaround as current issue cause running many jobs on unnecessary patches and consume lot of infra resources. We discussed few of the workaround mentioned below and we can go for one based on majority of people or infra team like/suggest- 1. Do not use integrated-gate template and let each project have the jobs in their pipeline list 2. Define all the irrelevant files for each projects in job template ? 3. Leave as it is. ..1 http://lists.openstack.org/pipermail/openstack-dev/2018-February/127349.html http://lists.openstack.org/pipermail/openstack-dev/2018-February/127347.html ..2 https://github.com/openstack-infra/openstack-zuul-jobs/blob/49cd964470c081005f671d6829a14dace2c9ccc2/zuul.d/zuul-legacy-project-templates.yaml#L82 -gmann __________________________________________________________________________ OpenStack Development Mailing List (not for usage questions) Unsubscribe: openstack-dev-requ...@lists.openstack.org?subject:unsubscribe http://lists.openstack.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/openstack-dev
