Artifacts API

Artifact data model

An artifact is a file uploaded by your agent during the execution of a build’s job. The contents of the artifact can be retrieved using the download_url and the artifact download API.

id ID of the artifact
job_id ID of the job
url Canonical API URL of the artifact
download_url Artifact Download API URL for the artifact
state State of the artifact (new, error, finished, deleted)
path Path of the artifact
dirname Path of the artifact excluding the filename
filename Filename of the artifact
mime_type Mime type of the artifact
file_size File size of the artifact in bytes
sha1sum SHA-1 hash of artifact contents as calculated by the agent

Deprecated fields

Artifacts previously included glob_path and original_path but these were deprecated and now return null.

Download an artifact

Returns a 302 response to a URL for downloading an artifact. The URL will be returned in the response body and the Location HTTP header.

You should assume the URL returned will only be valid for 60 seconds, unless you've used your own S3 bucket where the URL will be the standard public S3 URL to the artifact object.

curl "https://api.buildkite.com/v2/organizations/{org.slug}/pipelines/{pipeline.slug}/builds/{build.number}/jobs/{job.id}/artifacts/{id}/download"
{
  "url": "https://buildkiteartifacts.com/artifacts/2196c80a1ff393a88482aebe929f9648/dist/app.tar.gz?AWSAccessKeyId=AKIAIPPJ2IPWN5U3O1OA&Expires=1288526454&Signature=5i4%2B99rUwhpP2SbNsJKhT/nSzsQ"
}

Success response: 302 Found

Delete an artifact

The artifact record is marked as deleted in the Buildkite database, and the artifact itself is removed from the Buildkite AWS S3 bucket. It will no longer be displayed in the job or build artifact lists, and it will not be returned by the artifact APIs.

If the artifact was uploaded using the agent’s custom AWS S3, Google Cloud, or Artifactory storage support, the file will not be automatically deleted from that storage. You must delete the file from your private storage yourself.

curl -X DELETE "http://api.buildkite.com/v2/organizations/{artifact.job.build.project.account.slug}/pipelines/{artifact.job.build.project.slug}/builds/{artifact.job.build.number}/jobs/{artifact.job.uuid}/artifacts/{artifact.uuid}?access_token={access_token.token}
