Interacting with the bot

Jenkins EPO reads instructions from comments on PR, including description, and comments on commit for protected branches.

An instruction is always prefixed with jenkins:. It must be a valid YAML dict. Instructions on multiple line must be wrapped in MarkDown code block.

Available instructions can be reported by invoking jenkins: man in an open pull request.

Example of instructions

Simple one line instruction:

jenkins: skip

Parameterized intruction:

  jobs: '*units'

Complex instruction:

``` yaml
      PARAM0: 'override'

Marking urgent pull requests

Jenkins EPO priorize protected branches over pull-requests. It is possible to mark a pull request as urgent, to test it before protected branches and other pull requests. Prefix PR title with [URGENT] to increase PR priority in EPO queue.
