ADR013: Building BOSH releases
Before this decision, we usually built and uploaded releases to Bosh as part of our concourse pipeline. Occasionally, we would manually build a release, store it on GitHub, and point Bosh to it there.
Building Bosh Releases
We investigated different approaches to creating bosh releases, in particular
- Multiple pipelines created dynamically using branch manager
- A single pipeline using pullrequest-resource
The work on these spikes was recorded in https://www.pivotaltracker.com/n/projects/1275640/stories/115142265 https://www.pivotaltracker.com/n/projects/1275640/stories/128937731
We will use the pullrequest-resource approach to build all our Bosh releases in a consistent way.
We must gradually migrate all our Bosh release builds to their own build pipelines. We will need separate jobs to build from master - this already has a proof of concept in the spike. We may have to add additional config in projects we fork to allow us to create final builds.
