Working with Tags¶
By default, your Factory is configured to tag all Targets built from
devel branches with the respective tag:
That is good to keep the development flow fast. For example, you start with the
platform build based on
devel branch, and install it on the device.
Then you develop applications on
containers.git from the
devel branch. The
application is built in CI with a
containers-devel trigger name
and produces a Target tagged with
Finally, the device automatically updates to the latest Target tagged with
There are some use cases that you might want to control what tag the device should follow and how Targets should be tagged.
Some examples of use cases could be:
- Prevent a device following a tag such as
develwhich is automatically created every time you change the
- Test a specific Target on a specific device.
This tutorial will guide you over examples to help you understand how tags work.
