API Documentation

The BuildBuddy API let's you programmatically obtain information about your Bazel builds. API access available to Enterprise BuildBuddy Customers.

Requests can be made via JSON or using Protobuf. The examples below are using the JSON API. For a full overview of the service, you can view the service definition or the individual protos.

GetInvocation

The GetInvocation endpoint allows you to fetch invocations associated with a commit SHA or invocation ID. View full Invocation proto.

Endpoint

https://app.buildbuddy.io/api/v1/GetInvocation

Service

// Retrieves a list of invocations or a specific invocation matching the given
// request selector.
rpc GetInvocation(GetInvocationRequest) returns (GetInvocationResponse);

Example cURL request

curl -d '{"selector": {"invocation_id":"c6b2b6de-c7bb-4dd9-b7fd-a530362f0845"}}' \
-H 'x-buildbuddy-api-key: YOUR_BUILDBUDDY_API_KEY' \
-H 'Content-Type: application/json' \
https://app.buildbuddy.io/api/v1/GetInvocation

Make sure to replace YOUR_BUILDBUDDY_API_KEY and the invocation ID c6b2b6de-c7bb-4dd9-b7fd-a530362f0845 with your own values.
