`allow_failure` for specific exit codes
The current CI/CD jobs can either pass, fail, or pass-with-warnings, although there is no way for the running script to notify the state on exit.
The current use case for this is in the bizops/BizOps project, where we have ELT jobs that extract data from various sources. These jobs are expected to pass, but are flaky by design. I would like a way for the running job to control the job's status according to the exit codes of the script.
- I might hit an error that should abort the pipeline, so that should make the job fail so the rest of the pipeline stops.
- There might be problems that cause the job to output warnings
- The job might succeed
The only problem I have right now is that either we set
allow_failure then we lose the
fail state for this job or we can't have warnings.
Add an exit code to the
allow_failure (or a list)
pings: stage: extract retry: 1 <<: *job_definition script: - set_sql_instance_name - setup_cloudsqlproxy - bash processes/hosts_to_sfdc/python_timecheck.sh - stop_cloudsqlproxy allow_failure: [2,3,4]
