Overview

Each time a task associated to the wiki, repository or bug tracker is automated by the execution of a script on a machine, the machine user running such script will be identified as SlicerBot.

Type of SlicerBot

Wiki

This SlicerBot user publishes update on the Slicer wiki. The associated wiki account is UpdateBot

Git

This SlicerBot user can commit changes to a defined subset of Slicer repositories. The associated github account is slicerbot and it can commit changes to all repositories associated with the slicerbot-team in Slicer github organization.

As documented on managing deploy keys Github guide, there are multiple approaches to grant a machine access to a repository. We chose the machine user one.

In a nutshell, the steps to configure a git machine user are:

  • Generate SSK keys without pass-phrase:
ssh-keygen -t rsa -C "slicerbot@slicer.org"
  • Add the generated id_rsa.pub key to the list of SSH keys associated with slicerbot user. Each key *SHOULD* be named slicerbot-<hostname>. For example slicerbot-factory-south-ubuntu
  • Setup git username and email:
git config --global user.name "Slicer Bot"
git config --global user.email "slicerbot@slicer.org"
