Subject [jira] [Comment Edited] (BUILDS-102) Ability to trigger Jenkins rebuild for GitHub pull requests

---------------------------------------------------------------

Oh, and I think Spark's doing that by using a script that polls for pull requests, rather
than triggering via webhooks with the plugin. That could definitely be done on builds.a.o,
a la the test patch stuff that Hadoop and friends use (which is becoming the core of the new
Yetus project). We could probably work on getting PR polling added to that as well as the
existing JIRA polling.

> It would be really useful to be able to trigger a Jenkins rebuild for a GitHub pull request
when the build fails due to a transient problem (ie flaky tests and/or environmental issues).
Despite our best efforts, it's hard to eliminate all flaky tests from the Kafka codebase (as
some are fixed, new ones appear).
> This is supported by the open-source GitHub Pull Request Builder Plugin via comments
in the pull request itself (e.g. "retest this please" to rebuild, "add to whitelist" to automatically
build future pull requests from the submitter, etc.):
> https://wiki.jenkins-ci.org/display/JENKINS/GitHub+pull+request+builder+plugin
> Spark is using this with the AMPLab Jenkins instance:
> https://github.com/apache/spark/pull/7613
> https://amplab.cs.berkeley.edu/jenkins/job/SparkPullRequestBuilder/38199/consoleFull
> The Apache Jenkins instance is using the Jenkins Enterprise GH PR plugin, which doesn't
support this functionality (probably based on https://wiki.jenkins-ci.org/display/JENKINS/GitHub+Plugin)
because the more featured one required privileges on the GitHub side that the Apache Infra
team was not able to give at the time (as explained by [~abayer]).
> [~abayer] suggested that he would check if things have changed. The fact that Spark made
it work is a good indicator. We also have the option of moving to a separate Jenkins instance
(Confluent has offered theirs), but we would prefer to improve the Apache one as that benefits
the other projects too.
