Today we released a new feature in our web UI, the job config 🎉
You can can find it wherever we display the job log, in a new secondary tab navigation.
We store a job’s config as JSON string and that’s how our API delivers it. This is also how we present it in the UI.
“Why display the config of a job?” you might wonder. A lot of projects have build matrixes configured (for example to test on different operating systems), meaning a single push triggers multiple jobs, each with a different configuration. If no matrix is configured the build will start with one job only.
Having an overview over how a job is configured gives insight into what’s happening in the job log and hopefully answers questions about why certain things are executed the way they are.
We hope you find this just as useful as we do!
Happy configuring and building!
