Create a master label at job group level to label all the jobs in the same build
As a openQA user, I would like to have a feature to label all the jobs of the same build at the same time with certain
poo, instead of labeling one by one.
A possible use case is in container image tests (BCI) where a new container image build is tested on multiple host versions and architectures to be validated. Sometimes, the image is faulty and we need to label all the jobs (~40) which makes thing very time consuming for the reviewer.
For example, this build or this are mostly failed tests.
It would be nice to use the
tag feature + the
build number doing something like this:
and automatically label all the jobs.

I assume you mean that this is very time consuming because reviewers do that manually one by one?
I agree that this is a valid idea in general but should be done carefully as "all jobs in the same build" might not be immediately obvious to reviewers as they can be spread out in multiple job groups, etc. We already have solutions, please tell me what you think about them. Best practices so far are:
- Simply use the build tagging and ignore individual unlabeled jobs as the complete build can be ignored
- Use auto-review to label jobs automatically based on regex matches in ticket subject lines
- Use the application "openqa-label-all" from the package "openQA-python-scripts", part of openQA
- Manual script hacking using the openQA API and labelling, e.g. using openqa-cli or simply curl to write comments
- Delete all affected jobs directly
