===Authentication contexts

When runCatalogItem is initiated from a command job step, take into account the following:

  • For DSL-based catalog items, the DSL script is evaluated with principals in the authentication context of the launching job user and the procedure project.

  • For procedure- and plugin-based catalog items: the catalog item procedure is run with principals in the authentication context of the launching job project and the subprocedure project. So in this case the proper privileges must be provided for one of the project.

Consider this example:

  • A procedure, create-project, in project, ` test1`, with the following command step: ectool createProject $[projName]

  • A catalog item , catalogItem1, in catalog, testCatalog, in project, test2, where subproject= test1, subprocedure= create-project, and formal parameter is projName.

  • A procedure, testProcedure, in project, test3, with a command step: ectool runCatalogItem test2 testCatalog catalogItem1 --actualParameter projName=newProject

Run the procedure: ectool runProcedure test3 --procedureName testProcedure

Result: the run job completes with success, but the runCatalogItem job fails with the following error:

ectool error [AccessDenied]: None of the principals in this authentication context ('project: test3', 'project: test1')
have modify privilege on systemObject 'projects'

Response

  • DSL-based catalog items: the response from evaluating the DSL.

  • Plugin-based catalog items: the job Id.

  • Procedure-based catalog items: the job Id.

ec-perl

syntax: $<object>->runCatalogItem(<projectName>, <catalogName>, <catalogItemName>, [<optionals>]);

Example

$cmdr->runCatalogItem({"CloudBees", "Pipelines", "Multi-stage CD Pipeline",
           actualParameter => [
              {actualparameterName => pipelineName, value =>"MyPipeline"},
              {actualparameterName => pipelineProjName, value => "Default"}
            ]
         });

ectool

syntax: ectool runCatalogItem <projectName> <catalogName> <catalogItemName> [optionals]

Example

ectool runCatalogItem "CloudBees" "Pipelines" "Multi-stage CD Pipeline"
           --actualParameter pipelineName="MyPipeline" pipelineProjName="Default"
