I'm trying to use the self serve API here to make a nightly build on oak: https://secure.pub.build.mozilla.org/buildapi/self-serve/oak When I enter the changeset inside this field "Create new nightly builds on oak revision" and click submit, it looks successful, but I don't see any nightly builds being built.
The way self-serve triggers nightlies is... not always what you would wish. It doesn't have a way to ask buildbot directly "what nightlies would you trigger, ir you were triggering nightlies on this branch?" so what it does is look back over the last two weeks and trigger a nightly of every sort of nightly it finds having been triggered before. Since for oak, with the last push before today being September 20th, that means "", it triggers "". Starting tomorrow, you'll be able to manually trigger nightlies on all the platforms that get automatic nightlies triggered tonight, on any future pushes, up until the next time you go more than two weeks without a push.
OK I see, so as long as I trigger Nightlies within 2 week spans then it'll work as I expect. Thanks, I think this can be resolved | WFM.
