We just upgraded to Bamboo 4.1.2 and would like to change the email of build failures to include the summary of the build error like when you go to Bamboo's build failure page (like below).
I've started to look at the notification customizations through Freemarker, but there's no documentation (that I can find) of all the Bamboo variables that are available. Could you tell me what those are?
The job generated some errors, drill down into the full build log for more details.
The build error summary goes here <-- this is what i need in email
Its not very discoverable but the Javadocs for the Notification classes list the available data:
Plan Level Completed Notfiications: http://docs.atlassian.com/atlassian-bamboo/latest/com/atlassian/bamboo/notification/chain/ChainCompletedNotification.html
Job Level Completed Notifiations: http://docs.atlassian.com/atlassian-bamboo/latest/com/atlassian/bamboo/notification/buildcompleted/BuildCompletedNotification.html
Methods available on the Java objects are available in freemarker via the shortened syntax. e.g. .getPlanKey() -> .planKey
Unfortunately you can not access the error information in the plan level notifications. So You will only be able to do this for Job Notifications e.g:
[#list buildResult.buildErrors as error]
Brydie, So are you saying that we cannot include job-level errors in the "All Builds Completed" email or any other build-level email? The build-level emails have a table listing job results. Does this mean I have to add a Job-level notification to the plan, and put your code in there? Do you know what template file and where? Also, what templates files are used? I've tried putting static text in various files and nothing shows up in the emails. We are using HTML plan/build emails. For now I am only interested in adding error detail (the stdErr messages) to the build failed email. Thanks for any help, Jeff
I just found this thread trying to add the Error summary from the results web page to the e-mail. This worked for me on 5.13:
Copy notificationCommonsHtml.ftl to BAMBOO_HOME\templates\notification-templates
Look for this line:
[#macro showFailingJobs buildSummary baseUrl]
This is where it displays info about the failed jobs. I updated this section:
[@displayJobRow jobResult stageResult/]
[#assign failingJob = true /]
[#-- Added to show failed job error summary --]
<td colspan="5"><strong>Error Summary:</strong><br/>
[#list jobResult.extraBuildResultsData.buildErrors as error]
That adds the build summary error message after each failed job.
The API has changed a bit since the original response. The error data is now in ExtraBuildResultsData. Remember to restart Bamboo after you've edited the file.
