Android Continuous Integration

The Android Continuous Integration dashboard (ci.android.com) provides visibility into the system used by the Android Open Source Project (AOSP).

Contributors to AOSP can use this dashboard to monitor when their submissions are integrated into the tree. The status color shows whether the integrated change has built successfully across all our build types. For convenience, the build artifacts from each build are available for download.

Each row represents a completed build on Android's automated builders. Each column represents a build target/buildtype combination. Within the grid, in-progress and completed builds are shown with these background colors:

  • Green: Successful
  • Yellow: In progress
  • Red: Failed

When a build is completed you can download the build artifacts by clicking the (View artifacts) icon, which links to a page where you can download the artifacts. Clicking a square opens a panel at the bottom of the screen with a Details tab where the logs are kept, a Changes tab listing what changes went into a build, and a link to the build artifacts. The dashboard refreshes automatically as new builds are completed.
