So I have an expansive test that I don’t want to run on every commit in my circle ci workflow.
I found that I can use ‘[ci stop]’ in my commit message but it stops the whole workflow. And I want to skip only one step/job (not sure what is what, I’m a confused frontend dev lol).
Here is a mock config.yml for an example to be clear.
notExpansiveTest: <<: *notExpansiveTest steps: - checkout - run: name: notExpansiveTest command: | npm install notExpansiveTest npm run notExpansiveTest notExpansiveTest: <<: *notExpansiveTest steps: - checkout - run: name: notExpansiveTest command: | npm install notExpansiveTest npm run notExpansiveTest myExpensiveTest: environment: ExpensiveTest: /tmp/ExpensiveTest-test-results docker: - image: ExpensiveTest/docker-cli - when: condition: << git.commit.includes(' --runExpensiveTest ') >> steps: - run: .... - run: e.....params.json - run: .............
So what I want is- the first two steps to run on every commit no matter what is the message.
And the last (expansive) test to run only when the commit looks like this: “–runExpansiveTest fixed some issue”
Thank you for the help.
