DESCRIPTION

The aegis -Integrate_Fail command is used to inform aegis that a change has failed integration.

The change will be returned from the being integrated state to the being developed state. The change will cease to be assigned to the current user, and will be reassigned to the originating developer. The integration directory will be deleted.

The reviewer and the developer will be notified by mail. See the integrate_fail_notify_command in aepconf(5) for more information.

The reason-file will contain a description of why the change was failed. The file is in plain text. It is recommended that you only use newline to terminate paragraphs, (rather than to terminate lines) as with will result in better formatting in the various listings.

Notification

On successful completion of this command, the integrate_fail_notify_command field of the project attributes is run, if set. See aepattr(5) and aepa(1) for more information.

OPTIONS

The following options are understood:

-Change number

This option may be used to specify a particular change within a project. See aegis(1) for a complete description of this option.

-Edit

Edit the attributes with a text editor, this is usually more convenient than supplying a text file. The VISUAL and then EDITOR environment variables are consulted for the name of the editor to use; defaults to vi(1) if neither is set. See the visual_command and editor_command fields in aeuconf(1) for how to override this specifically for Aegis.

Warning: Aegis tries to be well behaved when faced with errors, so the temporary file is left in your home directory where you can edit it further and re-use it with a -file option.

The -edit option may not be used in the background, or when the standard input is not a terminal.

-Edit_BackGround

Edit the attributes with a dumb text editor, this is most often desired when edit commands are being piped into the editor via the standard input. Only the EDITOR environment variable is consulted for the name of the editor to use; it is a fatal error if it is not set. See the editor_command field in aeuconf(1) for how to override this specifically for Aegis.

-File filename

Take the attributes from the specified file. The filename `-' is understood to mean the standard input.

-Help

This option may be used to obtain more information about how to use the aegis program.

-Keep

This option may be used to retain files and/or directories usually deleted or replaced by the command. Defaults to the user's delete_file_preference if not specified, see aeuconf(5) for more information.

-No_Keep

This option may be used to ensure that the files and/or directories are deleted or replaced by the command. Defaults to the user's delete_file_preference if not specified, see aeuconf(5) for more information.

-List

This option may be used to obtain a list of suitable subjects for this command. The list may be more general than expected.

-Project name

This option may be used to select the project of interest. When no -Project option is specified, the AEGIS_PROJECT environment variable is consulted. If that does not exist, the user's $HOME/.aegisrc file is examined for a default project field (see aeuconf(5) for more information). If that does not exist, when the user is only working on changes within a single project, the project name defaults to that project. Otherwise, it is an error.

-REAson text

This option may be used to provide the failure reason on the command line, rather than in a file. You will need to use quotes to insulate the spaces from the shell.

-TERse

This option may be used to cause listings to produce the bare minimum of information. It is usually useful for shell scripts.

-Verbose

This option may be used to cause aegis to produce more output. By default aegis only produces output on errors. When used with the -List option this option causes column headings to be added.

-Wait

This option may be used to require Aegis commands to wait for access locks, if they cannot be obtained immediately. Defaults to the user's lock_wait_preference if not specified, see aeuconf(5) for more information.

-No_Wait

This option may be used to require Aegis commands to emit a fatal error if access locks cannot be obtained immediately. Defaults to the user's lock_wait_preference if not specified, see aeuconf(5) for more information.

See also aegis(1) for options common to all aegis commands.

All options may be abbreviated; the abbreviation is documented as the upper case letters, all lower case letters and underscores (_) are optional. You must use consecutive sequences of optional letters.

All options are case insensitive, you may type them in upper case or lower case or a combination of both, case is not important.

For example: the arguments "-project, "-PROJ" and "-p" are all interpreted to mean the -Project option. The argument "-prj" will not be understood, because consecutive optional characters were not supplied.

Options and other command line arguments may be mixed arbitrarily on the command line, after the function selectors.

The GNU long option names are understood. Since all option names for aegis are long, this means ignoring the extra leading '-'. The "--option=value" convention is also understood.

RECOMMENDED ALIAS

The recommended alias for this command is



csh% alias aeifail 'aegis -ifail \!* -v'
sh$ aeifail(){aegis -ifail "$@" -v}

ERRORS

It is an error if the change is not in the being integrated state. It is an error if the change is not assigned to the current user.

EXIT STATUS

The aegis command will exit with a status of 1 on any error. The aegis command will only exit with a status of 0 if there are no errors.

ENVIRONMENT VARIABLES

See aegis(1) for a list of environment variables which may affect this command. See aepconf(5) for the project configuration file's project_specific field for how to set environment variables for all commands executed by Aegis.
