Custom Log Messages provide a way for processes executed by Continua CI to interact with the Continua CI build. This includes the ability to set the build number, set variables and send real time status information. This feature will be extended over time.

Message Format

@@continua[messageType parameter='value' parameter='value']

Note that the messageType field is not case sensitive. The parameter order is not defined, and parameter values must be quoted (with single quotes). NewLines, blackslashes, [ ] and single quotes must be escaped, e.g

@@continua[messageType name='test' value='This is a \nnew line and I am \'quoted\' by a\\b'] 


Message Types

@@continua[endGroup name='Copying Files...']


setVariable
- Sets a Continua CI Configuration Variable. Note that the variable name must be a Continua CI Configuration Variable. Optionally set the skipIfNotDefined attribute to 'true' to prevent the build failing if the variable has not been defined for the configuration.

Parameters : name, value, skipIfNotDefined

@@continua[setVariable name='possiblyUnDefinedVariable' value='Hello world!' skipIfNotDefined='true']


setBuildVersion - Sets the current builds version string. 

Parameters :  value, verbose

Example : 

@@continua[setBuildVersion value='1.2.3']


setBuildStatus 
- Sets the current action's build status, which is shown on the build details page when a build is running

Parameters : name, verbose

Example : 

@@continua[setBuildStatus value='Copying Files...']

pinBuild - Pins the current build, so that it is listed at the top of the build history and excluded from build cleanup. Optionally provide a comment to be associated with the pin and set the appendComment attribute to 'true' to append it to any existing comment.

Parameters : comment, appendComment, verbose

Example : 

@@continua[pinBuild comment='Keep this awesome build' appendComment='true']

unpinBuild - Removes any pins from the current build.

Parameters : comment, appendComment, verbose

tagBuild - Adds the supplied tag to the current build. Optionally set the replaceExisting attribute to 'true' to remove any existing tags first.

Parameters : tag, replaceExisting, verbose

Example : 

@@continua[tagBuild tag='deployed' replaceExisting='true']

removeBuildTag - Remove a tag or all tags from current build. Either provide the name of the tag to remove or set the removeAll attribute to 'true' to remove all existing tags.

Parameters : tag, replaceExisting, verbose

Examples : 

@@continua[removeBuildTag tag='deployed']

@@continua[removeBuildTag removeAll='true']

Common parameters

If the verbose parameter is set to true for any of the message types above, additional text describing the action will be written to the build log.

Example : 

@@continua[setBuildVersion value='1.2.3' verbose='true']
