Phabricator-Jenkins Plugin Build Status Coverage Status

This plugin provides Phabricator integration with Jenkins. It allows Jenkins to report build status and coverage information over Harbormaster (or via comments if Harbormaster is not enabled).

Table of Contents


  • Arcanist is installed on the Jenkins nodes where the tests will be run (e.g. not just the master) the arc binary is in $PATH or configured explicitly in the global settings.


Before the plugin can be used, a few configuration steps on your Phabricator and Jenkins instances need to be completed.

Phabricator Configuration

In this section, you'll create a bot user in Phabricator and generate a Conduit API token. If you already have a bot user and a Conduit API token, skip to the "Jenkins Setup Section".

  1. Create a bot user in Phabricator.
  2. Click Edit Settings on the manage page for that user
  3. Click Conduit API Tokens on the left of the settings page
  4. Click Generate API Token, and accept.
  5. Copy the token.

Jenkins Setup

  2. Navigate to the Phabricator section and click the Add button. Add Credentials
  3. From the Kind dropdown, select Phabricator Conduit Key.
  4. Enter the base URL for your Phabricator instance in the Phabricator URL field. For example
  5. Enter a description in the Description field for readability.Configure Credentials
  6. Paste the Conduit API token (created in the Phabricator Configuration section) in the Conduit Token field.
  7. Click the Add button.

Now that Jenkins and Phabricator are configured you can configure your Jenkins job and Harbormaster.

Jenkins Job

  2. Click the Configure button.
  3. Click the Add Parameter button and select String Parameter.
  4. Enter DIFF_ID in the Name field of the parameter.
  5. Repeat step 3.
  6. Enter PHID in the Name field of the second parameter. Configure job parameters
  7. If you want to apply the differential to your workspace before each test run, navigate to the Build Environment section and select the Apply Phabricator Differential checkbox. This resets to the base commit the differential was generated from. If you'd rather apply the patch to master, select the Apply patch to master checkbox. Enable build environment
  8. To report the build status to Phabricator after the test completes:
  9. Navigate to the Post-build Actions section.
  10. Click the Add post-build action button and select Post to Phabricator.
  11. Make sure the Comment on Success and Comment with console link on Failure checkboxes are selected.

If you want to post additional text to Phabricator other than "Pass" and "Fail", select the Add Custom Comment checkbox. Then create a .phabricator-comment file and enter the text you want Jenkins to add to the build status comment in Phabricator. Add post-build action


With Phabricator, Jenkins, and your Jenkins jobs configured it's time to configure a new Harbormaster build plan. This build plan will trigger the Jenkins job using a Herald rule that will be configured in the next section.

  2. Click the Create Build Plan button in the top right corner of the page.

  3. Enter a name for the build plan in the Plan Name field. For these instructions, we'll use "test-example" as the build name.

  5. Click the Add Build Step button.

  6. Click the Make HTTP Request step.

  7. Use this template URI to fill in the URI field for the build plan:${buildable.diff}&PHID=${target.phid}

    Be sure to replace with the URI of your Jenkins instance and test-example with the name of your Jenkins job.

    If your Jenkins instance is exposed to the internet, make sure to install the Build Token Root Plugin and fill in the token parameter.

  1. Click the When Complete dropdown menu and select Wait For Message.
  2. Click the Create Build Step button. Harbormaster plan


With the build plans created it's time to create a Herald Rule to trigger the plans. The steps below will configure a Herald Rule to trigger the build plans on Differential Revisions to your repository.
