Create try-extender


(Taskcluster :: General, defect)

Not set


(Not tracked)



(Reporter: jlal, Unassigned)



After speaking with RyanVM I found some additional tooling we need to fully replace self-serve one of these is what I call "try-extender".

Try-extender is a UI which lists try flags from a given branch / revision (this should load from the in-tree configs in taskcluster) and presents a UI of all the flags. These check boxes are used to create a decision task which will extend an existing push with extra jobs.

Why? This is used primarily in the case where we need to debug problems (in lets say b2g-inbound) in periodic tasks. Currently this is done manually by creating the missing periodic tasks and seeing which commit the issue was created in.

Not sure how this fits in with the mozci plans.
James, would you mind if we spoke in Whistler about this?
I should have some POC of mozci+TC support.

For the record, this sounds more like a dynamic trychooser (we're not limiting it to try, right?) *and* triggering what is selected.
We've talked about setting something like this up but I did not want to tackle it without TC support.
please keep the conversations/summaries public.  :gma_fav is looking into similar bugs and keeping everyone in the loop will help.
We will.
Is that bug 983802?
yes, these bugs seem very much related.
Component: TaskCluster → General
Product: Testing → Taskcluster
I believe this depends on bug 1107597

* Creating an up-to-date trychooser is a different problem that this bug
* Once bug 1107597 is fixed we can have a UI that allows removing tasks that had not been scheduled by removing the self-dependencies of those tasks.

The equivalent bug for the buildbot set up is bug 1185537.

Armen, pulse_actions has given us this functionality, right?
Yes, martianwars accomplished this in bug 1254325.
