Install a Git adapter

Install a Git adapter as a post-receive hook on Mac OS X/Linux.

Minimum requirements:
Each external Git repository you wish to monitor with TeamForge EventQ requires the installation of a customized post-receive hook script as follows.

Install Git post-receive hooks

  1. Download the EventQ-git-adapter-[version].zip adapter file from the TeamForge EventQ Community web site and unpack it inside your repository's hooks directory. For example, if your repository's hooks directory is located at /path/to/repo.git/hooks :

    cd /path/to/repo.git/hooks

    Download the zip file to the current location, then:

    unzip EventQ-git-adapter-1.0.zip

    This will unpack the following into your hooks directory:
    • Files: LICENSE.txt README.txt post_receive_orc_publish_amqp.conf.sample post_receive_orc_publish_amqp.py
    • Directories: eventq/ pika/

Configuration

  1. In a web browser, log into TeamForge EventQ as a privileged EventQ user and edit (or add) the relevant Commit source you wish to associate with this Git repository.

    Manage Sources > Toggle Commit > Add or Edit a Source > External repository

  2. On the Edit Source screen, locate the section titled "Adapter Configuration Information" and copy all values; these values are used later in the configuration process.
  3. Switch back to your command line console and copy post_receive_orc_publish_amqp.conf.sample to post_receive_orc_publish_amqp.conf.
  4. Edit post_receive_orc_publish_amqp.conf and modify options for your specific installation, for example:
