README

A client for the Pact Broker and PactFlow. Publishes and retrieves pacts, pacticipants, pacticipant versions, environments, deployments and releases. Supports publishing provider contracts for PactFlow. The functionality is available via a CLI, or via Ruby Rake tasks. You can also use the Pact CLI Docker image.

Build status

Gem Version

Trigger update to docs.pact.io

Installation

Docker

The Pact Broker CLI is packaged with the other Ruby command line tools in the pactfoundation/pact-cli Docker image.

docker pull pactfoundation/pact-cli:latest

Standalone executable

Download the latest pact-ruby-standalone package. You do not need Ruby to run the CLI, as the Ruby runtime is packaged with the executable using Travelling Ruby.

Ruby

Add gem 'pact_broker-client' to your Gemfile and run bundle install, or install the gem directly by running gem install pact_broker-client.

Connecting to a Pact Broker with a self signed certificate

To connect to a Pact Broker that uses custom SSL cerificates, set the environment variable $SSL_CERT_FILE or $SSL_CERT_DIR to a path that contains the appropriate certificate. Read more at https://docs.pact.io/pact_broker/advanced_topics/using-tls#for-non-jvm

Usage - CLI

All commands prefixed with pact-broker can be used with the OSS Pact Broker and PactFlow. Commands prefixed with pactflow can only be used with PactFlow.

The Pact Broker base URL can be specified either using the environment variable $PACT_BROKER_BASE_URL or the -b or --broker-base-url parameters.

Pact Broker authentication can be performed either using basic auth or a bearer token.

Basic auth parameters can be specified using the $PACT_BROKER_USERNAME and $PACT_BROKER_PASSWORD environment variables, or the -u or --broker-username and -p or --broker-password parameters.

Authentication using a bearer token can be specified using the environment variable $PACT_BROKER_TOKEN or the -k or --broker-token parameters. This bearer token authentication is used by PactFlow and is not available in the OSS Pact Broker, which only supports basic auth.

[--ignore=PACTICIPANT]
# The pacticipant name to ignore. Use once for each pacticipant
being ignored. A specific version can be ignored by also
specifying a --version after the pacticipant name option. The
environment variable PACT_BROKER_CAN_I_DEPLOY_IGNORE may also
be used to specify a pacticipant name to ignore, with commas to
separate multiple pacticipant names if necessary.
-l, [--latest=[TAG]]
# Use the latest pacticipant version. Optionally specify a TAG
to use the latest version with the specified tag.
[--branch=BRANCH]
# The branch of the version for which you want to check the
verification results.
[--main-branch], [--no-main-branch]

# json or table
# Default: table
[--retry-while-unknown=TIMES]
# The number of times to retry while there is an unknown
verification result (ie. the provider verification is likely

# Default: 0
[--retry-interval=SECONDS]
# The time between retries in seconds. Use in conjuction with
--retry-while-unknown
# Default: 10
[--dry-run], [--no-dry-run]
# When dry-run is enabled, always exit process with a success
code. Can also be enabled by setting the environment variable
PACT_BROKER_CAN_I_DEPLOY_DRY_RUN=true. This mode is useful when
setting up your CI/CD pipeline for the first time, or in a
'break glass' situation where you need to knowingly deploy what
Pact considers a breaking change. For the second scenario, it
is recommended to use the environment variable and just set it
for the build required to deploy that particular version, so
you don't accidentally leave the dry run mode enabled.
-b, --broker-base-url=BROKER_BASE_URL
# The base URL of the Pact Broker
-u, [--broker-username=BROKER_USERNAME]
# Pact Broker basic auth username
-p, [--broker-password=BROKER_PASSWORD]
# Pact Broker basic auth password
-k, [--broker-token=BROKER_TOKEN]
# Pact Broker bearer token
-v, [--verbose], [--no-verbose]
# Verbose output. Default: false

Description: Returns exit code 0 or 1, indicating whether or not the specified application (pacticipant) has a successful verification result with each of the application versions that are already deployed to a particular environment. Prints out the relevant pact/verification details, indicating any missing or failed verification results.

The can-i-deploy tool was originally written to support specifying versions and dependencies using tags. This usage has now been superseded by first class support for environments, deployments and releases. For documentation on how to use can-i-deploy with tags, please see https://docs.pact.io/pact_broker/client_cli/can_i_deploy_usage_with_tags/

Before can-i-deploy can be used, the relevant environment resources must first be created in the Pact Broker using the create-environment command. The "test" and "production" environments will have been seeded for you. You can check the existing environments by running pact-broker list-environments. See https://docs.pact.io/pact_broker/client_cli/readme#environments for more information.

$ pact-broker create-environment --name "uat" --display-name "UAT" --no-production

After an application is deployed or released, its deployment must be recorded using the record-deployment or record-release commands. See https://docs.pact.io/pact_broker/recording_deployments_and_releases/ for more information.

$ pact-broker record-deployment --pacticipant Foo --version 173153ae0 --environment uat

Before an application is deployed or released to an environment, the can-i-deploy command must be run to check that the application version is safe to deploy with the versions of each integrated application that are already in that environment.

$ pact-broker can-i-deploy --pacticipant PACTICIPANT --version VERSION --to-environment ENVIRONMENT

Example: can I deploy version 173153ae0 of application Foo to the test environment?

$ pact-broker can-i-deploy --pacticipant Foo --version 173153ae0 --to-environment test

Can-i-deploy can also be used to check if arbitrary versions have a successful verification. When asking "Can I deploy this application version with the latest version from the main branch of another application" it functions as a "can I merge" check.

$ pact-broker can-i-deploy --pacticipant Foo 173153ae0 \ --pacticipant Bar --latest main

Polling

If the verification process takes a long time and there are results missing when the can-i-deploy command runs in your CI/CD pipeline, you can configure the command to poll and wait for the missing results to arrive. The arguments to specify are --retry-while-unknown TIMES and --retry-interval SECONDS, set to appropriate values for your pipeline.

# Specify the uuid for the webhook

Description: Create a curl command that executes the request that you want your webhook to execute, then replace "curl" with "pact-broker create-or-update-webhook" and add the consumer, provider, event types and broker details. Note that the URL must be the first parameter when executing create-or-update-webhook and a uuid must also be provided. You can generate a valid UUID by using the generate-uuid command.

Note that the -u option from the curl command clashes with the -u option from the pact-broker CLI. When used in this command, the -u will be used as a curl option. Please use the --broker-username or environment variable for the Pact Broker username.

Publish provider contract to PactFlow

Usage - Ruby

Consumer

# In Gemfile

gem "pact_broker-client"
# In Rakefile

require 'pact_broker/client/tasks'

PactBroker::Client::PublicationTask.new do | task |
require 'my_consumer/version'
task.consumer_version = ENV["GIT_COMMIT"]
task.pattern = 'custom/path/to/pacts/*.json' # optional, default value is 'spec/pacts/*.json'
task.pact_broker_base_url = "http://pact-broker"
task.branch = ENV["GIT_BRANCH"] # Optional but STRONGLY RECOMMENDED.
task.tag_with_git_branch = true|false # Superseeded by the `branch` property
task.tags = ["dev"] # optional
task.build_url = ENV["CI_BUILD_URL"]
task.pact_broker_basic_auth = { username: 'basic_auth_user', password: 'basic_auth_pass'} # optional
task.pact_broker_token = "1234abcd" # Bearer token
