GoCD Elastic agent plugin for Docker

Table of Contents

Installation

Documentation for installation is available here.

Building the code base

To build the jar, run ./gradlew clean test assemble

Using your own docker image with elastic agents

The plugin executes the equivalent of the following docker command to start the agent —

docker run -e GO_EA_SERVER_URL=...
           -e GO_EA_AUTO_REGISTER_KEY=...
           -e GO_EA_AUTO_REGISTER_ENVIRONMENT=...
           -e GO_EA_AUTO_REGISTER_ELASTIC_AGENT_ID=...
           -e GO_EA_AUTO_REGISTER_ELASTIC_PLUGIN_ID=...
           ...
           IMAGE_ID

Your docker image is expected to contain a bootstrap program (to be executed via docker's CMD) that will create an autoregister.properties file using these variables. The GO_EA_SERVER_URL will point to the server url that the agent must communicate with.

Here is an example shell script to do this —

# write out autoregister.properties
(
cat <<EOF
agent.auto.register.key=${GO_EA_AUTO_REGISTER_KEY}
agent.auto.register.environments=${GO_EA_AUTO_REGISTER_ENVIRONMENT}
agent.auto.register.elasticAgent.agentId=${GO_EA_AUTO_REGISTER_ELASTIC_AGENT_ID}
agent.auto.register.elasticAgent.pluginId=${GO_EA_AUTO_REGISTER_ELASTIC_PLUGIN_ID}
EOF
) > /var/lib/go-agent/config/autoregister.properties

Using the GoCD agent, installed via .deb/.rpm

See the bootstrap script and docker file here under contrib/scripts/bootstrap-via-installer.

Use a custom bootstrapper

This method uses lesser memory and boots up the agent process and starts off a build quickly:

See the bootstrap script and docker file here under contrib/scripts/bootstrap-without-installed-agent.

Troubleshooting

Enable Debug Logs

If you are on GoCD version 19.6 and above:

Edit the file wrapper-properties.conf on your GoCD server and add the following options. The location of the wrapper-properties.conf can be found in the installation documentation of the GoCD server.

# We recommend that you begin with the index `100` and increment the index for each system property
wrapper.java.additional.100=-Dplugin.cd.go.contrib.elastic-agent.docker.log.level=debug

If you're running with GoCD server 19.6 and above on docker using one of the supported GoCD server images, set the environment variable GOCD_SERVER_JVM_OPTIONS:

docker run -e "GOCD_SERVER_JVM_OPTIONS=-Dplugin.cd.go.contrib.elastic-agent.docker.log.level=debug" ...

If you are on GoCD version 19.5 and lower:

  • On Linux:

    Enabling debug level logging can help you troubleshoot an issue with this plugin. To enable debug level logs, edit the file /etc/default/go-server (for Linux) to add:

    export GO_SERVER_SYSTEM_PROPERTIES="$GO_SERVER_SYSTEM_PROPERTIES -Dplugin.cd.go.contrib.elastic-agent.docker.log.level=debug"

    If you're running the server via ./server.sh script:

    $ GO_SERVER_SYSTEM_PROPERTIES="-Dplugin.cd.go.contrib.elastic-agent.docker.log.level=debug" ./server.sh
  • On windows:

    Edit the file config/wrapper-properties.conf inside the GoCD Server installation directory (typically C:\Program Files\Go Server):

    # config/wrapper-properties.conf
    # since the last "wrapper.java.additional" index is 15, we use the next available index.
    wrapper.java.additional.16=-Dplugin.cd.go.contrib.elastic-agent.docker.log.level=debug
