git - stage files from a git repository

Host dependencies:

  • git


# Specify the git source kind
kind: git

# Optionally specify a relative staging directory
# directory: path/to/stage

# Specify the repository url, using an alias defined
# in your project configuration is recommended.
url: upstream:foo.git

# Optionally specify a symbolic tracking branch or tag, this
# will be used to update the 'ref' when refreshing the pipeline.
track: master

# Optionally specify the ref format used for tracking.
# The default is 'sha1' for the raw commit hash.
# If you specify 'git-describe', the commit hash will be prefixed
# with the closest tag.
ref-format: sha1

# Specify the commit ref, this must be specified in order to
# checkout sources and build, but can be automatically updated
# if the 'track' attribute was specified.
ref: d63cbb6fdc0bbdadc4a1b92284826a6d63a7ebcd

# Optionally specify whether submodules should be checked-out.
# If not set, this will default to 'True'
checkout-submodules: True

# If your repository has submodules, explicitly specifying the
# url from which they are to be fetched allows you to easily
# rebuild the same sources from a different location. This is
# especially handy when used with project defined aliases which
# can be redefined at a later time.
# You may also explicitly specify whether to check out this
# submodule. If 'checkout' is set, it will override
# 'checkout-submodules' with the value set below.
    url: upstream:bar.git
    checkout: True
    url: upstream:baz.git
    checkout: False

This plugin provides the following configurable warnings:

  • git:inconsistent-submodule - A submodule present in the git repository’s .gitmodules was never added with git submodule add.

  • git:unlisted-submodule - A submodule is present in the git repository but was not specified in the source configuration and was not disabled for checkout.


    The git:unlisted-submodule warning is available since format version 20

  • git:invalid-submodule - A submodule is specified in the source configuration but does not exist in the repository.


    The git:invalid-submodule warning is available since format version 20

This plugin also utilises the following configurable core warnings:
