Search tips

apple banana
Find rows that contain at least one of the two words.

+apple +juice
Find rows that contain both words.

+apple macintosh
Find rows that contain the word 'apple', but rank rows higher if they also contain 'macintosh'.

+apple -macintosh
Find rows that contain the word 'apple' but not 'macintosh'.

+apple ~macintosh
Find rows that contain the word 'apple', but if the row also contains the word 'macintosh', rate it lower than if row does not. This is "softer" than a search for '+apple -macintosh', for which the presence of 'macintosh' causes the row not to be returned at all.

+apple +(>turnover >strudel)
Find rows that contain the words 'apple' and 'turnover', or 'apple' and 'strudel' (in any order), but rank 'apple turnover' higher than 'apple strudel'.

Find rows that contain words such as 'apple', 'apples', 'applesauce', or 'applet'.

"some words"
Find rows that contain the exact phrase 'some words' (for example, rows that contain 'some words of wisdom' but not "some noise words").

VectorCAST Jenkins Pipeline Plugin Overview

Last updated: 2020-04-16

Background - What is a Jenkins Pipeline

A Jenkins Pipeline is a user-defined model of a continuous delivery (CD) system for your software. VectorCAST Pipeline Job is a model based on configuration information the user provides during the initial setup of the Pipeline Job.   

VectorCAST Pipeline Stages

The VectorCAST Pipeline Job is broken up into multiple stages:

  • Previous Stage - A placeholder for stage(s) coming before VectorCAST
  • Single Checkout - A stage for checking out the source and VectorCAST project information a single time for the entire pipeline. 
  • Get Environment Info - This stage queries the VectorCAST Project to determine which VectorCAST Test Environments to run
  • Build Execute Stage - This is the dynamically generated stage spawning a job for each VectorCAST Test Environments
  • Generate Overall Reports - This stage generates the reports for the VectorCAST project
  • Check Build Log - This stage searches the build log for common errors in the previous stages
  • Next Stage - A placeholder for stage(s) coming after VectorCAST

Parallelizing VectorCAST Test Environments

The Build Execute Stage of the VectorCAST Pipeline Job will spawn a single job for every enabled VectorCAST Test Environment. Each job is restricted to execution on a Node (machine which is part of the Jenkins environment) that has a matching label in the Node configuration. You can restrict the number of simultaneous jobs running by limiting the number of executors on each Node. A user may want to limit the number of executors because of limited hardware, limited tool licenses, or limited CPUs. Jobs are launched in parallel but may be queued on a certain node waiting for an available executor.

For example, a node that supports host based tests may have a large number of executors where a node that supports a hardware based connection may be limited to one executors.
