Running in jenkins, including pull requests:

  • GIT_NAME, GIT_SRC - must be given

  • GIT_BRANCH - defaults to master

  • GIT_CHANGE_ID - can be empty or pull request id

$ docker run -i –rm -e GIT_SRC=”$GIT_NAME.git” -e GIT_NAME=”$GIT_NAME” -e GIT_BRANCH=”$BRANCH_NAME” -e GIT_CHANGE_ID=”$CHANGE_ID” eeacms/pylint
