Release of the Open Build Service, Version 2.9

by the OBS Team posted on 19th Mar 2018

The Build Service Team is happy to announce the release of Open Build Service 2.9! :tada:

Among many bug fixes this release comes with a big bunch of features. Thanks to the new image template page you can branch images easily from an existing template and base your further work on it. With the kiwi editor you can further configure your image, add packages, repositories and all kind of things. All this is part of the SUSE Studio Express we started last year. Last but not least, the recently added EC2 cloud upload feature, allows you to directly upload your EC2 image from OBS to the Amazon Web Services (AWS). :cloud:

We revamped our notification system, including RSS Feeds for user’s notifications, RabbitMQ support, a nicer UI for the notifications page and much more.

The year is coming to an end, all the 🎁 lie under the 🎄 and the 🍾 is already cold for 🎆. Being the good agile folks that we are, we think this is the perfect time to reflect on 2017. On all the code, the bugs and fixes, features and refactorings, the tunes and adjustments we have introduced to our code base, process and tool belt. Not only to trace the steps of our journey, but also to get ideas how to become more effective in 2018.

Welcome SUSE Studio Express Users!

Studio is an web application that makes it easy to build a custom operating system as a virtual machine, raw/DVD/USB hard disk images.

We implemented a new feature, user notifications via RSS, that included a migration of data in our database. This migration was broken, causing this deployment to go terribly wrong.

The frontend team afterward met to do a post-mortem to identify the problems, solutions and possible take aways for the future. This is the first post-mortem meeting we held, hopefully but not likely the last. Here goes the report.

SUSE Studio Integration

by Christian Bruckmayer posted on 31st May 2017

You all know the amazing SUSE Studio and love how it abstracts the complicated process of appliance building. However, it lacks several essential features like an integration into your continuous integration workflow or automatic rebuilds on updates. If you have followed our recent blog posts then you may have noticed that we currently work on a better integration of appliance building in the Open Build Service. This blog post will show you how you can export your appliance from SUSE Studio and import it into the Open Build Service to benefit from these features.

Open Build Service Version 2.8 Released

by the OBS Team posted on 7th Apr 2017

The Build Service Team is happy to announce to release of Open Build Service 2.8! We’ve been hard at work to bring you many new features to the UI, the API and the backend. The UI has undergone several handy improvements including the filtering of the projects list based on a configurable regular expresion and the ability to download a project’s gpg key and ssl certificate (also available via the API). The API has been fine-tuned to allow more control over users including locking or deleting them from projects as well as declaring users to be sub-accounts of other users. The backend now includes new features such as mulibuild - the ability to build multiple jobs from a single source package without needing to create local links. Worker tracking and management has also been enhanced along with the new obsservicedispatch service which handles sources in an asynchronous queue. Published packages can now be removed using the osc unpublish command.

Open Build Service version 2.5 released

by the OBS Team posted on 31st Mar 2014

Are you ready for another set of great features for your free software packaging needs? We are with version 2.5. of the Open Build Service(OBS). With this release you can plug OBS into your continuous integration/delivery chain thanks to the new token API that let's you trigger builds from revision control systems like github. 2.5 further merges the Web UI and API into one single Ruby on Rails app, so it is easier for you to maintain, easier for us to extend and most important way snappier to use for your packagers. This release also begins to unify the various places where you can configure things into the OBS API, introduces an integrated comment and notification system and saves your OBS servers some cycles by automatically cleaning up left over branches. As you can see our team never tires to be awesome! Read on for more, in depth, information about OBS version 2.5.
