Build scan quickstart

This is an example project that you can use to experience build scans.

It is a small Java project that has the build scan plugin already applied.

Create a build scan

Follow these simple steps to create a build scan:

  1. Clone this project
  2. Read the Terms of Service
  3. Uncomment the Terms of Service agreement code in the build.gradle file
  4. Run ./gradlew build --scan

The build should end with something similar to:

Publishing build information...

Follow the green link shown at the end of the build to view your build scan.

Note: If you run a build without the --scan flag, no build scan will be created and no information will be sent.

Experiment with build scans

Create different kinds of build scans by locally modifying this quickstart project. Here are some ideas:

  • Edit src/main/java/example/ to introduce compile errors
  • Edit src/test/java/example/ to introduce test failures
  • Add more dependencies, more plugins, and more projects

Alternatively, enable one of your own builds to produce build scans by following the step-by-step instructions.

Read the build scan plugin user manual to learn more about build scans and the build scan plugin.
