            Request PR review from team via CLI
            Asked 2020-Nov-23 at 22:29

            GitHub's API has an endpoint to request reviewers for a pull request. Reviewers can be individual users (reviewers) or entire teams (team_reviewers) (teams can be created at the org level).

            For instance, the following will request a PR review from Stack Overflow's SRE team:

            Unlike the API, the CLI doesn't have a separate parameter. --reviewer just accepts team names in the format org/teamname as well. For example:

            Use helm hub to search for any chart such as nginx and you can use the command given there to install the chart. Please note

            1. Not all charts are available in stable repo

            2. You need to update local helm repo to be able to install the chart.

              helm repo update

              helm install stable/nginx-ingress

            How to check Hubot log output in test script
            Asked 2019-May-09 at 07:54

            I'm writing a test for my Hubot (which acts as a Slack bot). Triggered by certain Slack messages, the bot sends an HTTP POST request to a separate Rails app. How can I check in my test script that the HTTP request has been sent? My guess was that I should check the contents of the robot.logger (please let me know if there's a better way) - but if so, how can I access the log in the test?

            Hubot script (basically, it informs the Rails app about a user who is leaving the office to take a break):



            Answered 2019-May-09 at 07:54

            I wouldn't advise writing tests depending on logs. The log is a side-effect of the program. If you change the log output, the tests will fail, even though the functionality is still correct.

            Instead you should use a library to mock out and check if the http request was performed. Actually making the request would be a side-effect, and again shouldn't be done in your tests (what if you cause excessive load on an external service due to tests running?

            You are already using the nock library to catch the request. It can also be used to check if the request was made (see the expectations docs from the nock repo).

            Here is an example using the requestScope.done() from nock in your test.



            EHOSTUNREACH error while sending HTTP request from Hubot to Rails app locally
            Asked 2019-May-08 at 06:47

            I am developing a Slack bot (using Hubot) as well as a Rails app that will receive HTTP requests from it and process them accordingly. Basically, the high-level steps of what I want to do are like this:

            1. A slack user sends a trigger word to the bot (let's say the trigger is "bye").
            2. Hubot picks up the trigger, then sends a request to the Rails app.
            3. Rails app marks the Slack user as out of office.

            I seem to have some sort of routing issue, because I get the EHOSTUNREACH error when I try to execute this flow with both apps booted (rails s for Rails and ./bin/hubot --adapter slack for Hubot). I'm guessing that Hubot is unable to reach the Rails app at all. Am I missing something here? What URL do I need to use to enable these apps to send requests to each other?

            I've also tried swapping out the with localhost:3000, but the results stayed the same.

            Answered 2019-May-07 at 08:14

            Change the request to robot.http("http://localhost:3000") ensuring you have the protocol at the beginning.



            AssertionError while testing Hubot script with hubot-test-helper and chai
            Asked 2019-May-07 at 11:36

            I'm writing a simple test for my Hubot (which acts as a Slack bot) to check that my bot sends a reply in response to triggers. I've followed the example shown in the docs, but test results in an AssertionError (details below) and I'm not sure why. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

            I assume the issue has to do with the test, not the script (, since I got the correct reply when I tested the script by sending an actual message to the bot from Slack.



            Answered 2019-May-07 at 11:36

            I think the problem is an indentation error.

            The @room.user.say call is being passed an empty function as a promise resolution rather than the expect block, as this should be indented another level.

            That fits with the result that only one message is in the room, as the expect call got executed before the async @room.user.say() got executed:

            Hubot multiple messages
            Asked 2019-Jan-10 at 14:03

            I have the following script:



            Answered 2019-Jan-10 at 14:03

            You are getting multiple messages because the robot.respond /dog (.*)/i listener is attached every time the robot.respond /petsit/i is called. That is the first time you send petsit the /dog (.*)/i listener is attached for the first time. When you send dog ... only one response will be triggered. Every subsequent time you send petsit the second listener will bind itself on the same robot instance, thus sending you multiple responses.

            By default there is no native support from Hubot for managing conversations. Instead you should have a look at a 3rd party module like hubot-conversation that adds this type of functionality or implement your own logic.
