Hi Falk!

I don't think you'd need to do anything with jinja. Take a look at ChoiceStringParameter:


Looks like you could override getChoices to dynamically get them from a git shell command.

Subject: [users at bb.net] Customizing force build interface


we are currently migrating from our self-written system to buildbot.

One of our requirements is to 'force build' from specific GIT-tags, desired to realize as drop-down-box.
As our workflow works in the way, that a developer creates a tag and afterwards the release-build is started by hand.

I understand the relationship between buildbot and jinja.
However I have no idea, how to get the list of available GIT-tags into the force-build website.

Any help or suggestions appreciated.

Best regards,
