      Description

      Hi,

      We have a problem when passing Build selector for Copy Artifact as a parameter filter for an older job/build.

      Suppose 3 Jobs:

      • Job 1: DepJob
      • Job 2: SubJob
        • Build selector for Copy Artifact Parameter: SELECT_ME
          • Default selector : Specific build
          • Build number : 123
        • Build step: Copy artifacts from another project:
          • Project Name : DepJob
          • Which build : Specified by a build parameter
            • Parameter Name : SELECT_ME
      • Job 3: MainJob
        • Build selector for Copy Artifact Parameter: SELECT_DEPJOB
          • Default selector : Specific build
          • Build number : 123
        • Build step: Copy artifacts from another project:
          • Project Name : SubJob
          • Which build : Latest successful build
          • Parameter filters : SELECT_ME=$SELECT_DEPJOB

      Quick issue description

      When last successful build of SubJob has been built with an older version of the Copy Artifact Plugin, then MainJob cannot find the artifacts although they exist!

      Details

      1. DepJob has a build 123.
      2. SubJob performs some builds with Copy Artifact Plugin version 1.26:
        • Build selector for Copy Artifact Parameter:
          • SELECT_ME: Specific build -> 123
      3. Update Copy Artifact Plugin
      4. MainJob performs build with Copy Artifact Plugin version 1.31:
        • Build selector for Copy Artifact Parameter:
          • SELECT_DEPJOB: Specific build -> 123
      5. MainJob build fails since it cannot find atifacts with SELECT_ME: Specific build -> 123 in the old builds of SubJob!

      This is a blocker for us since we have a very large project which uses this kind of constructions for packaging all sub-projects (aka sub jobs).

      We recently updated the Copy Artifact Plugin, but we still need lots of artifacts the old(er) sub-projects (for which currently no rebuilt is needed).

          Regarding the blocker priority, can't you just downgrade the plugin?

          Hi Daniel,

          Thank you for the quick reply.

          Yes, we could do so, but meanwhile we also have
          a lot of builds which used the newer Copy Artifact Plugin.

          We also need some bug fixes and features from the new version.

          Maybe it's quite easy to disable the version check
          or to add some backward compatibility?

          Thank you in advance!

          Let me know:

          • Does SubJob work fine after upgrading copyartifact to 1.31?
          • Did MainJob work fine before upgrading copyartifact to 1.31?

          And could you attach following files?

          • configurations of those jobs. They are placed at ${JENKINS_HOME}/jobs/(jobname)/config.xml
          • console outputs for a succeeded build and a failed build.

          I found the root cause.
          It is caused for SELECT_ME=$SELECT_DEPJOB does not work.

          A build of SubJob with copyartifact 1.26 is recorded like this (see recorded with plugin="copyartifact@1.26"):

              <hudson.model.ParametersAction>
                <parameters>
                  <hudson.model.StringParameterValue>
                    <name>SELECT_ME</name>
                    <description></description>
                    <value>&lt;SpecificBuildSelector plugin=&quot;copyartifact@1.26&quot;&gt;  &lt;buildNumber&gt;1&lt;/buildNumber&gt;&lt;/SpecificBuildSelector&gt;</value>
                  </hudson.model.StringParameterValue>
                </parameters>
              </hudson.model.ParametersAction>
          

          When running MainJob is started with copyartifact 1.31, the build is launched like this (see recorded with plugin="copyartifact@1.31"):

              <hudson.model.ParametersAction>
                <parameters>
                  <hudson.model.StringParameterValue>
                    <name>SELECT_DEPJOB</name>
                    <description></description>
                    <value>&lt;SpecificBuildSelector plugin=&quot;copyartifact@1.31&quot;&gt;  &lt;buildNumber&gt;1&lt;/buildNumber&gt;&lt;/SpecificBuildSelector&gt;</value>
                  </hudson.model.StringParameterValue>
                </parameters>
              </hudson.model.ParametersAction>
          

          And they doesn't satisfy SELECT_ME=$SELECT_DEPJOB.

          As that serialization is the work of Jenkins core (or Jenkins framework), and I'm not sure I can fix that.
          I think we should consider an alternate way to do what @tom_ghyselinck want to do.

          Hi ikedam,

          Thank you for the update!

          I would be great if you can find a workaround or an alternative way for it!

          Is it an option to provide the values string-based instead of xml-based?
          Using custom encoder / decoder? Or provide a custom dumper which does not add the version info?

          This would allow for some backward compatibility.

          Though I believe I can remove "plugin" attribute by overwiting XStream2#createDefaultConverter, that's not a good approach as it might cause copyartifact stop working in a future version of Jenkins.
          https://github.com/jenkinsci/jenkins/blob/jenkins-1.565.1/core/src/main/java/hudson/util/XStream2.java#L122

          Rather, I'm considering adding a new build selector "Downstream of". You can pick the build like this:

          • Which build: Downstream of
          • Upstream project: DepJob
          • Upstream build #: 123
          • Target Downstream Project: MainJob

          Hi ikedam,

          The Downstream of seems a feasible solution for our problem.

          Am I correct: This selector is not subject to the "plugin" property problem because:

          1. The iteration on the builds of SubJob will be handled internally and
          2. the "plugin" property will not be verified?
            (i.e. it is not a bare string comparison)

          So, if I see it correct, the configuration would be as follows:

          • Job 1: DepJob
          • Job 2: SubJob
            • Build selector for Copy Artifact Parameter: SELECT_ME
              • Default selector : Specific build
              • Build number : 123
            • Build step: Copy artifacts from another project:
              • Project Name : DepJob
              • Which build : Specified by a build parameter
                • Parameter Name : SELECT_ME
          • Job 3: MainJob
            • Build selector for Copy Artifact Parameter: SELECT_DEPJOB
              • Default selector : Downstream of
              • Upstream project : DepJob
              • Build number : 123
            • Build step: Copy artifacts from another project:
              • Project Name : SubJob
              • Which build : Specified by a build parameter
                • Parameter Name : SELECT_DEPJOB
              • Parameter filters : none
          Just one final remark

          Shouldn't it be called Upstream of instead of Downstream of?

          Rationale: In the MainJob configuration: You choose the upstream (i.e. DepJob) project selection of the SubJob.

          P.S. Thank you very much for the quick responses! It is really appreciated!

          Yes, it no longer tests builds by string comparison, and we will be no longer bothered by "plugin=".
          I also have to add texts not to use build selecter variables as parameter filters.

          I don't agree "Upstream of" as it's confusing especially when used in a project configuration page.

          How difficult would it be to add support for MultiJob's here? It would be great if I could use this with MultiJobs, but it appears that a job that is triggered as part of a Phase of the MultiJob isn't considered downstream. Would it be possible to add support for this?

          I don't plan that at least for the first release of this feature.
          Please create another ticket.

          Anyway, I don't know much about MultiJob (I haven't ever used that)
          and I cannot contribute for that.

          Let me have one more week to make a new release (1.32).
          I'm working on fixes for other bugs.

          I can provide a snapshot version that includes this feature if you want.
          Let me know if you need this feature soon.

          Hi ikedam,

          Thank you for the update.

          Next week would be fine for us!
          This week we can still use other builds for testing.

          Thank you in advance!

          Hi ikedam. I found an existing ticket for what I was wanting to implement for MultiJob: https://issues.jenkins-ci.org/browse/JENKINS-16847. Any chance you could review my work there?

          You can use "Downstream build of" to pick a build in a same multijob.

          • Pass the build number of the multijob build to downstream builds.
            • Use as a parameter for "Downstream build of").
          • Fingerprint files with a same content in the parent multijob build and the child build to copy artifacts from.
            • Fingerprinting is required for "Downstream build of" to find downstream builds.
            • You need Fingerprint plugin to fingerprint in multijob.
            • ${BUILD_ID} of the parent multijob build is good for the content of the file.

          I know this is just a workaround as it's not easy to use.
          The best way is to introduce a new buld selector to multijob-plugin.
