Campaign spec YAML reference
This page is a reference guide to the campaign spec YAML format in which campaign specs are defined. If you’re new to YAML and want a short introduction, see “Learn YAML in five minutes.”
The name of the campaign, which is unique among all campaigns in the namespace. A campaign’s name is case-preserving.
The description of the campaign. It’s rendered as Markdown.
description: This campaign changes all `fmt.Sprintf` calls to `strconv.Iota`.
description: | This campaign changes all imports from `gopkg.in/sourcegraph/sourcegraph-in-x86-asm` to `github.com/sourcegraph/sourcegraph-in-x86-asm`
The set of repositories (and branches) to run the campaign on, specified as a list of search queries (that match repositories) and/or specific repositories.
on: - repositoriesMatchingQuery: lang:go fmt.Sprintf("%d", :[v]) patterntype:structural - repository: github.com/sourcegraph/sourcegraph
A Sourcegraph search query that matches a set of repositories (and branches). Each matched repository branch is added to the list of repositories that the campaign will be run on.
See “Code search” for more information on Sourcegraph search queries.
on: - repositoriesMatchingQuery: file:README.md -repo:github.com/sourcegraph/src-cli
on: - repositoriesMatchingQuery: lang:typescript file:web const changesetStatsFragment
A specific repository (and branch) that is added to the list of repositories that the campaign will be run on.
branch attribute specifies the branch on the repository to propose changes to. If unset, the repository’s default branch is used. If set, it overwrites earlier values to be used for the repository’s branch.
on: - repository: github.com/sourcegraph/src-cli
on: - repository: github.com/sourcegraph/sourcegraph branch: 3.19-beta - repository: github.com/sourcegraph/src-cli
In the following example, the
repositoriesMatchingQuery returns both repositories with their default branch, but the
3.23 branch is used for
github.com/sourcegraph/sourcegraph, since it is more specific:
on: - repositoriesMatchingQuery: repo:sourcegraph\/(sourcegraph|src-cli)$ - repository: github.com/sourcegraph/sourcegraph branch: 3.23
In this example,
3.19-beta branch is used, since it was named last:
on: - repositoriesMatchingQuery: repo:sourcegraph\/(sourcegraph|src-cli)$ - repository: github.com/sourcegraph/sourcegraph branch: 3.23 - repository: github.com/sourcegraph/sourcegraph branch: 3.19-beta
The sequence of commands to run (for each repository branch matched in the
on property) to produce the campaign’s changes.
steps: - run: echo "Hello World!" >> README.md container: alpine:3
steps: - run: comby -in-place 'fmt.Sprintf("%d", :[v])' 'strconv.Itoa(:[v])' .go -matcher .go -exclude-dir .,vendor container: comby/comby - run: gofmt -w ./ container: golang:1.15-alpine
steps: - run: ./update_dependency.sh container: our-custom-image env: OLD_VERSION: 1.31.7 NEW_VERSION: 1.33.0
The shell command to run in the container. It can also be a multi-line shell script. The working directory is the root directory of the repository checkout.
The Docker image used to launch the Docker container in which the shell command is run.
The image has to have either the
/bin/sh or the
It is executed using
docker on the machine on which the Sourcegraph CLI (
src) is executed. If the image exists locally, that is used. Otherwise it’s pulled using
Environment variables to set in the environment when running this command.
In this case,
steps.env is an object, where the key is the name of the environment variable and the value is the value.
steps: - run: echo $MESSAGE >> README.md container: alpine:3 env: MESSAGE: Hello world!
In this case,
steps.env is an array. Each array item is either:
- An object with a single property, in which case the key is used as the environment variable name and the value the value, or
- A string that defines an environment variable to include from the environment
srcis being run within. This is useful to define secrets that you don’t want to include in the spec file, but this makes the spec dependent on your environment, means that the local execution cache will be invalidated each time the environment variable changes, and means that the campaign spec file is no longer the sole source of truth intended by the campaigns design.
This example is functionally the same as the object example above:
steps: - run: echo $MESSAGE >> README.md container: alpine:3 env: - MESSAGE: Hello world!
This example pulls in the
USER environment variable and uses it to construct the line that will be appended to
steps: - run: echo $MESSAGE from $USER >> README.md container: alpine:3 env: - MESSAGE: Hello world! - USER
For instance, if
USER is set to
adam, this would append
Hello world! from adam to
Files to create on the host machine and mount into the container when running
steps.files is an object, where the key is the name of the file inside the container and the value is the content of the file.
steps: - run: cat /tmp/my-temp-file.txt >> README.md container: alpine:3 files: /tmp/my-temp-file.txt: Hello world!
steps: - run: cat /tmp/global-gitignore >> .gitignore container: alpine:3 files: /tmp/global-gitignore: | # Vim *.swp # JetBrains/IntelliJ .idea # Emacs *~ \#*\# /.emacs.desktop /.emacs.desktop.lock .\#* .dir-locals.el
An array describing which already-existing changesets should be imported from the code host into the campaign.
importChangesets: - repository: github.com/sourcegraph/sourcegraph externalIDs: [13323, "13343", 13342, 13380] - repository: github.com/sourcegraph/src-cli externalIDs: [260, 271]
The repository name as configured on your Sourcegraph instance.
The changesets to import from the code host. For GitHub this is the pull request number, for GitLab this is the merge request number, for Bitbucket Server this is the pull request number.
A template describing how to create (and update) changesets with the file changes produced by the command steps.
This defines what the changesets on the code hosts (pull requests on GitHub, merge requests on Gitlab, …) will look like.
changesetTemplate: title: Replace equivalent fmt.Sprintf calls with strconv.Itoa body: This campaign replaces `fmt.Sprintf("%d", integer)` calls with semantically equivalent `strconv.Itoa` calls branch: campaigns/sprintf-to-itoa commit: message: Replacing fmt.Sprintf with strconv.Iota author: name: Lisa Coder email: [email protected] published: false
changesetTemplate: title: Update rxjs in package.json to newest version body: This pull request updates rxjs to the newest version, `6.6.2`. branch: campaigns/update-rxjs commit: message: Update rxjs to 6.6.2 published: true
changesetTemplate: title: Run go fmt over all Go files body: Regular `go fmt` run over all our Go files. branch: go-fmt commit: message: Run go fmt author: name: Anna Wizard email: [email protected] published: # Do not meddle in the affairs of wizards, for they are subtle and quick to anger. - git.istari.example/*: false - git.istari.example/anna/*: true
The title of the changeset on the code host.
The body (description) of the changeset on the code host. If the code supports Markdown you can use it here.
The name of the Git branch to create or update on each repository with the changes.
The Git commit to create with the changes.
The Git commit message.
changesetTemplate: commit: author: name: Alan Turing email: [email protected]
Whether to publish the changeset. This may be a boolean value (ie
'draft', or an array to only publish some changesets within the campaign.
An unpublished changeset can be previewed on Sourcegraph by any person who can view the campaign, but its commit, branch, and pull request aren’t created on the code host.
published is set to
draft a commit, branch, and pull request / merge request are being created on the code host in draft mode. This means:
- On GitHub the changeset will be a draft pull request.
- On GitLab the changeset will be a merge request whose title is be prefixed with
'WIP: 'to flag it as a draft merge request.
- On BitBucket Server draft pull requests are not supported and changesets published as
draftwon’t be created.
A published changeset results in a commit, branch, and pull request being created on the code host.
To publish only specific changesets within a campaign, an array of single-element objects can be provided. For example:
published: - github.com/sourcegraph/sourcegraph: true - github.com/sourcegraph/src-cli: false - github.com/sourcegraph/campaignutils: draft
||Match any sequence of characters|
||Match any single character|
||Match any character between
If multiple entries match a repository, then the last entry will be used. For example,
github.com/a/b will not be published given this configuration:
published: - github.com/a/*: true - github.com/*: false
If no entries match, then the repository will not be published. To make the default true, add a wildcard entry as the first item in the array:
published: - "*": true - github.com/*: false
To publish all changesets created by a campaign:
changesetTemplate: published: true
To publish all changesets created by a campaign as drafts:
changesetTemplate: published: draft
To only publish changesets within the
sourcegraph GitHub organization:
changesetTemplate: published: - github.com/sourcegraph/*: true
To publish all changesets that are not on GitLab:
changesetTemplate: published: - "*": true - gitlab.com/*: false
To publish all changesets on GitHub as draft:
changesetTemplate: published: - "*": true - github.com/*: draft
