What’s new and updated in Buildkite
Skipped jobs are now hidden by default
Posted May 30, 2016 by Keith
To make it easier to see which jobs were run in a build and which ones were skipped, we’ve updated build pipelines to hide skipped jobs by default ✨
No more seeing a disabled 🚀 step in a pull requests’s build pipeline 👏
If you want to see what jobs were skipped you can use the “Show skipped jobs” button on the right hand side of the pipeline 👀
Once you’ve shown the skipped jobs you can hover over them to see why they were skipped:
We’ve also added the ability to add branch filter patterns to
block steps so you can hide these too (and a new
skip property to manually skip a step):
steps: - command: ".buildkite/tests.sh" - command: ".buildkite/lint.sh" skip: "Linting is currently broken, skipping for now" - block: "Deploy to production" branches: "master" - command: ".buildkite/deploy.sh" branches: "master"
