Continua CI – v1.5.0.295 Released. Critical bug fix for Git; requires resetting your Git repositories

Posted by jpluimers on 2014/09/18

Click on the shield icon, followed by

Click on the shield icon, followed by “CI Server”

After that, reset all your Git repositories in ContinuaCI.

To view all the repositories on the server, follow either of these steps:

  • A:
    1. Logon as an administrator with the rights to view all repositories on the Continua CI server.
    2. Click on the shield icon in the top bar.
    3. Then click on “CI Server”.
    4. In the list on the left, scroll down and click “Repositories”.
  • B:
    1. Logon as an administrator with the rights to view all repositories on the Continua CI server.
    2. Note the URL in the address bar of your browser (for instance http://localhost:8080/ci).
    3. Replace the /ci part of your URL with /administration/ci/repositories (so you end up at something like http://localhost:8080/administration/ci/repositories).
    4. Go to that URL.

Now you are in the repositories section, where you see all the repositories configured on the Continua CI. Each repository has a [Reset] link in the right most column.

Then follow these steps:

  1. For all Git repositories,
    1. Click on the [Reset] link.
    2. Confirm the “Are you sure you want to reset this repository?” question by clicking “Yes”.
  2. Wait for all Git repositories to be marked “Ready” and have a green checkmark icon.

The Git repositories will go through these states to become “Ready”:

  1. Initialising
  2. Updating cache
  3. Getting changessets
  4. Ready
