buildOnlyIfChanges check not working in build definition for jenkins job

 Having a Jenkins build definition scheduled for every 2 hours that has enabled the checks 

  • Accept latest changes before loading
  • Build only if there are changes accepted
this build definition triggers a jenkins pipeline job, changes are not accepted in the workspace configure in build definition, it remains in the same state after every build.

Job is always trigger independently of the workspace status

Load directory is specified and is loaded in the jenkins master node where the buildengine daemon is running.
i tested situations where 
  • the workspace was not loaded and directory not present.
  • Workspace has been loaded previously therefore workspace content is downloaded upfront build triggering.
Workspace owner is the same as the one used to run the daemon.

RTC buildsystem toolkit and RTC Server version is 6.0.3

is this feature working i saw this issue :
where is stated that this functionality was not working but reworked in 5.0.2

Few possibilities:
  1. A private component could have been added to the stream that the build workspace flows with - Build Definition triggers scheduled build even without changes for private components in the RTC (470380)
  2. Does the build definition mention a list of components to be excluded during load? - If so then you might be facing the same issue as Provide more control over whether a build proceeds when changes accepted into excluded component (205217)

Rodrigo Jimenez commented Jul 25 '19, 5:28 a.m.

About situation 1, components in flow stream and workspace are the same.

About situation 2, there is no exclusion, all components to be accepted.

There is a way to find/generate any logs about this proccess of build triggering ?

 Nobody can help ??

I notice that for command build definitions its working, however not for jenkins build defs. 

Sridevi Sangaiah commented Aug 07 '19, 9:43 a.m.
Are you executing the command line build definition with JBE? If so then are the credentials used in JBE and Jenkins are same? For Jenkins scheduled builds is the schedule configured in the RTC build definition or is it through polling in Jenkins?

 Command line build def works fine, the one that does not work is with jenkins build definition.

 As far as i know is not possible to configure polling with RTC in jenkins declarative pipeline jobs, without starting the job itself.

this configuration does not work for us as always trigger the build 

checkout([$class: 'RTCScm', 
                avoidUsingToolkit: false, 
                buildTool: 'RTC-BuildSystem-Toolkit-Linux-6.0.3', 
                buildType: [buildDefinition: 'Jenkins - Sygma CI 13.0 Pipeline',customizedSnapshotName: '', value: 'buildDefinition'],
                credentialsId: 'b7a43c43-d7ca-4a6c-a6f1-7bee640e4627', 
                overrideGlobal: false, 
                poll: true,
                serverURI: '', 
                timeout: 480])

Did you try to deliver some changes to the stream that the build workspace flows with, request a build manually, and verify if the changes are accepted?

 Yes i tried that, the workspace remains unchanged, is like when the build definition is of jenkins-hudson type is not verifying this, cos as i said when the definition is as build engine command line works as expected so as workaround im using curl to trigger the builds, and i can see in the logs.

However this approach is not reflecting the real status of the build as it always success as long as the curl request works. also the RTC build ends right after the curl command, obviously does not wait until jenkins build ends. 

RTC output log of build (when defined as command line ), however when the build was of jenkins type only the jenkins console is shown in the log:

Can you also provide the log output from your jenkins-hudson type build?

 the RTC log ?, I actually can not find any link to the log in the build overview.

Sridevi Sangaiah commented Aug 09 '19, 7:39 a.m.

You can provide the console output from the Jenkins build. You can find the link to the Jenkins build in the external links tab of the RTC build result.

 Here is the beginning of the jenkins console log, but here there is no logging related to the checkout and accept of the workspace configured in the build definition, the checkout that appears in the log is for the pipeline script ( which is part of Jenkins pipeline configuration)
