Running build w/ QA being part of another repo


#1

We’re looking to start using circleci to run our primarily repo builds to test for errors. Our secondary QA tests (nightwatch) sites in a separate repo. During the build of our primary app, is it possible to get circleci to clone another repo in a different directory and run those tests against the primary app?


#2

+1, same question


#3

The short answer, yes.

The longer answer, you need to tell CircleCI what to do. In your CircleCI config file, you’d need to do the git clone and have a way to tell the tests where to test. For the git clone, you’ll need to setup an SSH key for authentication.
