GoCD S3 Artifact Plugin

The S3 artifact plugin provides a way to publish and fetch artifacts to/from AWS S3.

Getting started

Requirements

  • GoCD Server 18.7+
  • AWS account with access to S3 bucket

Following IAM policy should suffice to publish and fetch artifacts:

{
  "Version": "2012-10-17",
  "Statement": [
    {
      "Effect": "Allow",
      "Action": [
        "s3:ListBucket"
      ],
     "Resource": [
        "arn:aws:s3:::my-artifacts-bucket"
      ]
    },
    {
      "Action": [
        "s3:GetObject",
        "s3:HeadBucket",
        "s3:PutObject"
      ],
      "Effect": "Allow",
      "Resource": "arn:aws:s3:::my-artifacts-bucket/*"
    }
  ]
}

Note: Action s3:DeleteObject is not needed, plugin does not delete any objects.

Plugin Installation

Build the plugin as mentioned below.

Copy the file build/libs/s3-artifact-plugin-VERSION.jar to the GoCD server under ${GO_SERVER_DIR}/plugins/external and restart the server.

Plugin Configuration

There are three levels of configuration needed in order for publishing and fetching a file using AWS S3.

Configure the Artifact Store

  1. Login to GoCD server as admin and navigate to Admin > Artifact Stores

  2. Click on Add to add the store details for the plugin.

    • Specify the store id (an identifier you wish to give to this store)
    • Choose the Artifact plugin for S3
    • Specify the S3 Bucket and S3 Region
    • Specify the AWS Access Key Id and AWS Secret Access Key. Leave blank to use the instance profile.

See specification lower for more details.

Publish artifact config

Options:

  • Source - ant-like pattern for matching files to upload to S3. If directory is matched, all files of that directory are also uploaded.
  • Destination - a prefix in S3 bucket at which files will be uploaded.

Setup through Web UI:

  1. Navigate to the Artifacts tab under Stage > Job

  2. Choose artifact type External

    • Specify the artifact id.
    • Specify the store id of an existing artifact store
  3. Configure the build specific artifact details.

    • Specify the Source files pattern
    • Optionally specify the Destination, which is a folder path to where artifacts will be uploaded in your S3 bucket. If left empty, the file will be uploaded to the root of the S3 bucket you have specified.

See specification lower for more details.

Fetch artifact config

Options:

  • IsFile - determines if we are fetching just a single file.
  • SubPath - When fetching many files, a common prefix of objects in S3 bucket. When fetching single file: this can be a path in S3. It is possible to skip the path if upstream job has uploaded exactly 1 file. The SubPath should not include the Destination part of publish artifact config, see specification lower for more details.
  • Destination - a local subdirectory into which files will be fetched.

Setup through Web UI:

  1. Specify a Pipeline Dependency material if you have an upstream pipeline with artifacts to fetch.

  2. Navigate to Tasks tab under Stage > Job

  3. Add a Fetch Artifact task

    • Choose artifact origin type External
    • Specify the pipeline, stage and job name.
    • Specify the artifact id of the external artifact that belongs to the upstream job
    • Optionally specify SubPath to fetch only files matching a prefix.
    • Optionally specify Destination to fetch files to a custom directory.
    • Optionally select Source is a single file.

See specification lower for more details.

Specification

Plugin partially mimics behaviour of the original GoCD artifact store.

How the plugin works

Upload

  • on GoCD agent, files are matched using the Source configuration value.
  • agent uploads each file to AWS S3 Bucket, at Destination prefix.
  • on GoCD server a small JSON file is created in pluggable-artifact-metadata, (unique per job run):
{
  "Source" : "**/*.dll",
  "Destination" : "my/prefix",
  "IsFile" : false
}
  • Source is a pattern which user has provided in the artifact publish config. Except when there was exactly one match, then source is a path from which file was uploaded. E.g. in above example it could be bin/my.dll if there was just one .dll file in any directory.
  • Destination is user specified prefix at which all uploaded artifacts should land. E.g. if a bin/my.dll was matched, then plugin uploaded file to my/prefix/bin/my.dll
  • IsFile is set to true only when plugin found exactly one file matching the pattern.

Fetch

  • GoCD agent fetches the JSON file from server in pluggable-artifact-metadata
  • GoCD agent always adds a prefix before each S3 object download with Destination which was earlier saved in the JSON file.

If fetch is a single file and upstream upload was a single file (pattern matching only 1 file): Then GoCD agent will use Source field from the JSON to determine the S3 path to use for download.

If fetch is a single file but upstream upload was uploaded multiple files: Then user must specify SubPath in the fetch configuration. GoCD agent will use SubPath to determine the S3 path to use for download.

If fetch is of multiple files: Then there are no required options. GoCD agent will use a List S3 Objects request to determine which objects to download. If SubPath is specified, then only objects starting with a SubPath will be downloaded. If no files match, then fetch task fails.

Expanding environment variables

The Destination of the publish artifact config supports expanding environment variables available within the GoCD job context. That means that you can specify destination S3 prefix using e.g. ${GO_PIPELINE_NAME}/my/path/${GO_PIPELINE_COUNTER}.

One of the most important uses of this feature is when destination directory is specified by ${GO_PIPELINE_NAME}/${GO_PIPELINE_COUNTER}/${GO_STAGE_NAME}/${GO_STAGE_COUNTER}/${GO_JOB_NAME}. Such destination is unique for each build. It is the same tree structure which original GoCD artifact store uses. This plugin provides a convenience ${GO_ARTIFACT_LOCATOR} which evaluates to above expression.

If you decide to use ${GO_ARTIFACT_LOCATOR} as destination prefix in all your GoCD jobs, then S3 bucket will have the same artifact "directory" structure as original GoCD would.

Examples

Examples below should suffice to understand the expected behavior.

Single file upload

Scenario 1:

  • agent working directory has ./build.json file.
  • configured Source pattern is build.json

Result: On GoCD server:

{
"Source" : "build.json",
"Destination" : "",
"IsFile" : true
}

On AWS bucket /build.json.

Scenario 2:

  • agent working directory has ./bin/build.json file.
  • configured Source pattern is */build.json

Result: On GoCD server:

{
  "Source" : "bin/build.json",
  "Destination" : "",
  "IsFile" : true
}

On AWS bucket /bin/build.json.

Scenario 3:

  • agent working directory has ./bin/build.json file.
  • configured Source pattern is */build.json
  • configured Destination prefix is x/y

Result: On GoCD server:

{
  "Source" : "bin/build.json",
  "Destination" : "x/y",
  "IsFile" : true
}

On AWS bucket x/y/bin/build.json.

Many files upload

Scenario 1:

  • agent working directory has ./bin/build.json and ./bin/a.bin files.
  • configured Source pattern is bin

Result: On GoCD server:

{
  "Source" : "bin",
  "Destination" : "",
  "IsFile" : false
}

On AWS bucket: /bin/build.json and /bin/a.bin.

Scenario 2:

  • agent working directory has ./bin/build.json and ./bin/a.bin files.
  • configured Source pattern is bin
  • configured Destination prefix is x/y

Result: On GoCD server:

{
  "Source" : "bin",
  "Destination" : "x/y",
  "IsFile" : false
}

On AWS bucket: /x/y/bin/build.json and /x/y/bin/a.bin.

Fetch single file

Scenario 1:

  • no options configured in fetch task
  • upstream upload was a single file upload.

On GoCD we have

{
"Source" : "bin/build.json",
"Destination" : "",
"IsFile" : true
}

On AWS bucket /bin/build.json

Result: Agent will fetch bin/build.json to ./build.json.

Scenario 2:

  • configuration in fetch task - Destination: z
  • upstream upload was a single file upload.

On GoCD we have

{
  "Source" : "bin/build.json",
  "Destination" : "",
  "IsFile" : true
}

On AWS bucket /bin/build.json. Agent will fetch bin/build.json to z/build.json.

Fetch directory (prefix)

Scenario 1:

  • no options configured in fetch task

On GoCD we have:

{
  "Source" : "bin",
  "Destination" : "x/y",
  "IsFile" : false
}

On AWS bucket:

  • /x/y/bin/build.json
  • /x/y/bin/a.bin
  • /abc/ignored

Agent will fetch

  • x/y/bin/build.json to ./bin/build.json
  • x/y/bin/a.bin to ./bin/a.bin

Development

Building the code base

If you have local java SDK, then to build the code base just execute:

  • ./gradlew clean test assemble on Unix based systems
  • gradlew.bat clean test assemble on Windows

Building with docker and dojo

You don't need to setup java on your host, if you are fine with using docker and Dojo.

Assuming you already have a working docker, you can install dojo with:

DOJO_VERSION=0.5.0
wget -O dojo https://github.com/ai-traders/dojo/releases/download/${DOJO_VERSION}/dojo_linux_amd64
sudo mv dojo /usr/local/bin
sudo chmod +x /usr/local/bin/dojo

Then enter a docker container with java pre-installed, by running following command at the root of the project:

dojo

You can also build the plugin in single line:

dojo "./gradlew clean test assemble"

Running integration tests:

  • Requires access to S3 bucket. This can be provisioned by terraform in e2e/terraform. Run with ./tasks tf_apply create.
  • Terraform creates S3 bucket and a user with limited access, credentials are in e2e/terraform/tf-out.json.
  • To run all tests including integration:
./tasks build_test

Versioning

We use semantic versioning.

If you are submitting a new feature then please run a major version bump by

./tasks.sh set_version 0.X.0

If you are submitting a fix, then do not change any versions as patch bump is made right after each release.
