Set additional build job step status at uBuild

Hi Team,

We would like to set the additional status other than success/Failure/Abort on each build job step. Where we would like to set optional desired status. We will create required status using settings satuses and re-validate the output logs set the desired status to buildjob step and also the overall status with desired status.

2. In the information radiator also we have only few status, where in we would expecting the other desired status updated should be visible on each build.

3. Overall build status on the project dashboard is complete, Failure or aborted. We would anticipated it should display the desired output status across the project.

    As part of the review process, we strive to be transparent about our intentions with each enhancement suggestion. The offering team has carefully reviewed this idea and has decided that it does not fit into our current plans, or the idea has aged or has been implemented, so the idea will be closed. The idea will be kept in IBM's ideas repository and may still be voted on. It might be reassessed or reopened for additional feedback in the future. We value your feedback and thank you for allowing us the privilege of partnering with you in developing our products.

    Although the theme of this request is consistent with our business strategy, it is not committed to the release that is currently under development.

    1. Update Warning status to build job step.
    Description: Validate build job step output and update the status to Warning or desired status if it finds any warnings and feasible to count as well. With current approach and uBuild design, the step status is defined as Success/Failure.
    What we have tried:
    We did updated new Status as Warning and created post process script to search for the string “warning”. If it finds the string, mandate the step status to Warning. With default design we can't set/update the step status to desired status. Even we mention the status Warning, it will set to Success. Let us know if we have any plugin to achieve this.
    Assign status step also shows success, even mention the set status to Warning. It will update the overall build status to Warning and desired color. But, the Assigned status step (which setting up the warning status is success). Application team would like to set
    • Build job step status to desired status if possible display the warnings count at build.
    • Over all status of the build should set to warning and even Assigned status step should be warning.

    2. Over all build status will be set to warning, but project dashboard we have only build shows with status as Completed/Failed or Aborted. It wouldn't display the Warning builds on project dashboard

    3. In the information radiator, we don't have option to chose the desired build status. Which has default status and even we can't make any color coding.
