Integration with Build Failure Analyzer

This feature is supported from v2.8 forward.

Given the Build Failure Analyzer plugin is installed and eblaed, users can use failure causes stored in the BFA plugin knowledge base to describe their claim, and this cause will be stored with the claimed build or test.

The Claim menu when BFA is installed

To claim a build with a failure cause:

Upon claiming the build, the "Error" drop-down will be populated with all failure causes defined in the knowledge base. Selecting a failure cause will update the "Description" field with the cause description By default, selecting "None" will result in the default claim plugin behaviour. If there are already failure causes automatically detected by BFA, the claimed cause will be added to the list of identified problems. Claiming without a failure cause selected will result in no additional causes specified under "Identified Problems" The user may also input a claim reason, which is saved in the claim report as per default functionality.

Limitations

As the plugin uses a post build action to allow claiming, build or tests marked as failed priori to enabling the plugin will not have any claim action proposed.
