  • edgeXRelease.collectReleaseYamlFiles: Search through a provided file path and find all the release yaml files to process and parses yaml into a Groovy object using the readYaml function. Default file pattern to search for will be: release/*.yaml. This function will also validate what files have changed in the commit using edgex.didChange and will only release what was changed.
  • edgeXRelease.parallelStepFactory: Returns a Closure to execute the release for all release yaml entries found for the specific commit.
  • edgeXRelease.parallelStepFactoryTransform: Transforms release yaml Groovy object into a Groovy Closure containing all the logic needed to perform the release for the specific repository.
  • edgeXRelease.stageArtifact: If release contains binaries rather than docker images, the binaries need to be staged before the release occurs. This function forces a build of the artifact by triggering the job using the build(job: ..) Jenkins function.
