Jabber (XMPP) notifier and control plugin

jabberNotify: Jabber Notification

When used in Pipelines, this plugin will act somewhat differently than in AbstractBuild subclasses. Specifically, notification strategy relies on a build result being set, but in pipelines it is not (yet) set. Here are some ways to use it:
  • Set result yourself (and use a single jabberNotify step)
    try {
        //main build here.
        currentBuild.result = Result.SUCCESS.toString() //otherwise message will say "NOT_BUILT"
    } catch(e) {
        currentBuild.result = Result.FAILURE.toString()
        throw e
    } finally {
        jabberNotify notificationStrategy: 'failure and fixed', notifyCulprits: true, notifySuspects: true, targets: '...'
  • Decide when to notify (and author your own messages)
    jabberNotify buildToChatNotifier: [$class: 'ExtraMessageOnlyBuildToChatNotifier'], extraMessage: 'Build Started', targets: '...'
    try {
        //main build here
        jabberNotify buildToChatNotifier: [$class: 'ExtraMessageOnlyBuildToChatNotifier'], extraMessage: 'Build Succeeded', targets: '...'
    } catch (e) {
        jabberNotify buildToChatNotifier: [$class: 'ExtraMessageOnlyBuildToChatNotifier'], extraMessage: 'Build Failed', targets: '...'
        throw e
  • targets : String
  • buildToChatNotifier (optional)
      Nested Choice of Objects
    • $class: 'BuildParametersBuildToChatNotifier'
      • $class: 'DefaultBuildToChatNotifier'
        • $class: 'ExtraMessageOnlyBuildToChatNotifier'
          • $class: 'PrintFailingTestsBuildToChatNotifier'
            • $class: 'SummaryOnlyBuildToChatNotifier'
            • extraMessage : String (optional)
            • matrixNotifier (optional)
            • notificationStrategy : String (optional)
              This only makes sense if the build result has been set, either because this step is in a catch or finally block and the job already failed, or because it was manually set in the DSL (eg: currentBuild.result = Result.FAILURE.toString()) If it was not set, then only "all" will make sense.
            • notifyCulprits : boolean (optional)
            • notifyFixers : boolean (optional)
            • notifySuspects : boolean (optional)
            • notifyUpstreamCommitters : boolean (optional)
