Someone decided it's a good idea to ditch the old web UI editor for job groups hence we need to switch all job groups to YAML. Doing that for staging "ourselves", I mean within the QA tools team, might give us some feedback that we can learn from.
I became aware that the related progress wasn't added here, so I'm retroactively documenting this effort:
rsync_sle.pm had to be adapted to account for renamed products:
The filename for the scheduling YAML for autoyast had to be fixed since it fell out of the naming pattern.
SLE 12 SP5 has failures right now. I hadn't much success so far tracking down the root cause.
- Staging variants of tests were replaced with regular tests in the YAML, instead defining settings in-place.
YAML_SCHEDULE: schedule/staging/%TEST%@%MACHINE%.yamlis apparently not expanded correctly and the filename can contain the wrong machine.
Right now I'm looking into working around the expansion issues to get things back to a working state and not block on a fix.
