Force scheduler example is not compatible with nine

From regarding the example for the ForceScheduler in


This example is not working with v0.9 anymore as branch, revision, etc parameters are removed. I'm trying to figure out what is the correct way of customizing Force Scheduler form in Buildbot 0.9 and how to specify branch to be built.

If someone could provide a hint for the correct syntax, I'd be happy to contribute the update to documentation. Thanks!

Are these parameters in the codebase now?

Replying to dustin:

Are these parameters in the codebase now?

As far as I understand the docs and code, yes, branches are now specified as part of codebases parameter. However I couldn't figure out how to use it properly.

Overall I want to figure out 2 things with Buildbot 0.9:

  1. How to specify branches to ForceScheduler? via codebases?
  2. How to create web form to ask user for specific branch in the web UI?

for buildbot9 beta 5 the following worked ..

    name="Release", # (will bump build number, upload installers and run tests)
    reason=util.StringParameter(name="reason",label="Reason:", required=True, size=80),
    username=util.UserNameParameter(label="Who are you:", size=80),
    codebases = [ util.CodebaseParameter(
        "",                         # need to pass a value ("")
        name = "Main repository",
            choices=["master", "hest", primaryBranch],
            # will generate nothing in the form, but revision, repository,
            # and project are needed by buildbot selfcheduling system so we
        revision=util.FixedParameter(name="revision", default=""),
        repository=util.FixedParameter(name="repository", default=""),
        project=util.FixedParameter(name="project", default=""),
        ) ],
    properties = [],

Replying to pedersen:

Thanks for the example! It does work with v0.9.0b5.

But not with v0.9.0b6. The form shows up empty with the following script error:

TypeError: Cannot read property 'type' of undefined

The reason I want v0.9.0b6 is because it introduced masterFQDN parameter for Docker Latent Builder which I want to use. Will try to solve it :)

comment:6 Changed 3 years ago by dustin adds the first example. I'll need to look at why that didn't work with b6.
