Actions Workflow

Image Removed

The 'Actions Workflow' Editor contains a list of all the actions that have been added to the stage that is currently selected in the Stage Editor. Actions are listed sequentially with actions at the top of the list being executed BEFORE actions near the bottom.

The 'Edit Action' dialog can be brought up for a specific action by double clicking on that action.

Actions can be moved around the 'Actions Workflow' Editor with either the arrow buttons in the Stage and Actions Toolbar or with the keyboard. The keyboard shortcuts for moving actions are 'CTRL + <KEY_DIRECTION>'.

Moving an action to the left or right controls the indentation of that action. Any action that is indented becomes a child of any action above it that is not indented. This allows you to control the flow of your build by using Flow Control Actions. In the example above, the FinalBuilder and Run DOS Command actions are children of the If action. This means that these actions will only execute when the If action evaluates to true. 

 

Action List

Image Removed

The Action list contains all the Actions that are available in Continua CI. These actions have been grouped into categories which, when clicked, will display all actions in that category. In the example above, the 'Build Runners' category is selected and all the 'Build Runner' actions are displayed at the bottom of the list.

Clicking a category will select a different category which will change which actions are shown.

Clicking an action will display the 'Create Action' dialog where all the action's properties can be configured. Once the action has been configured it will then be added to the end of the Action Workflow. Alternatively, you can drag and drop an action from the action list to the exact position in the action workflow.

Editing Stage Gates

...

Stage Gates are attached to a stage and are simply a list of conditions that must be met before the next stage is executed. For example, you can create a condition where it will only evaluate to true once the server's local time reaches midnight. Stage Gates also come with default conditions which specify that all unit tests that ran in the previous stage must have passed. You can however choose to remove these default conditions.
