Builds API Methods

Builds are a means of categorizing your jobs on Sauce Labs, allowing you to view related jobs together for greater insight. The Builds API methods retrieve information about the builds and the jobs assigned to them.

note

Builds are exclusive to the device source on which the jobs were run, meaning you cannot group real device tests and emulator/simulator tests in the same build. Therefore, all Build API methods require a {build_source} parameter.

Refer to Getting Started for Authentication and Server information.

Lookup Builds#

GET /v2/builds/{build_source}/

Queries the requesting account and returns a summary of each build matching the query, including the ID value, which may be a required parameter of other API calls related to a specific build.

You can narrow the results of your query using any of the optional filtering parameters.

Parameters#

build_source

| PATH | REQUIRED | ENUM |

The type of device for which you are getting builds. Valid values are:

  • rdc - Real Device Builds
  • vdc - Emulator or Simulator Builds

user_id

| QUERY | OPTIONAL | STRING |

Returns any builds owned by the specified user that the authenticated user is authorized to view. You can look up the IDs of users in your organization using the Lookup Users endpoint.

org_id

| QUERY | OPTIONAL | STRING |

Returns all builds in the specified organization that the authenticated user is authorized to view.

group_id

| QUERY | OPTIONAL | STRING |

Returns all builds associated with the specified group that the authenticated user is authorized to view.

team_id

| QUERY | OPTIONAL | STRING |

Returns all builds for the specified team that the authenticated user is authorized to view.

status

| QUERY | OPTIONAL | ARRAY |

Returns only builds where the status matches the list of values specified. Valid values are:

  • running - Any job in the build has a state of running, new, or queued.
  • error - The build is not running and at least one job in the build has a state of errored.
  • failed - The build is not running or error and at least one job in the build has a state of failed.
  • complete - The build is not running, error, or failed, but the number of jobs with a state of finished does not equal the number of jobs marked passed, so at least one job has a state other than passed.
  • success -- All jobs in the build have a state of passed.

start

| QUERY | OPTIONAL | DATE-TIME |

Returns only builds where the earliest job ran on or after this Unix timestamp.

end

| QUERY | OPTIONAL | DATE-TIME |

Returns only builds where the latest job ran on or before this Unix timestamp.

limit

| QUERY | OPTIONAL | INTEGER |

The maximum number of builds to return in the response.

offset

| QUERY | OPTIONAL | INTEGER |

sort

| QUERY | OPTIONAL | ENUM |

Sorts the results in alphabetically ascending or descending order. Valid values are:

  • asc - Ascending
  • desc - Descending
