[opensuse-buildservice] Help setting up hermes with OBS
  • From: Shayon Mukherjee <opensuse@xxxxxxxxx>

I am trying to connect hermes with OBS to sent out notifications on my
local machine. That being said

1. I have been able to setup the basic configs fine so far I believe
(as per
2. I am able to access herminator fine (as anonymous although)
3. Starship instance runs fine too.

But, when a user (in [webui]) requests a role addition to a project
for instance, the notification doesn’t gets to hermes.

The logs I get is -

1. ./bs_srcserver log:


2. Apache log:

[Mon Aug 26 01:40:58 2013] [error] [client] Unable to
initialize logging, return
[Mon Aug 26 01:40:58 2013] [error] [client] Unable to
initialize logging, return

3. hermes log:

Nothing shows up. Although when i created a notification type with - "
notifyHermes -o 'bla=foo, bar=baz' CheckHermes" it worked fine and
appropriate logs showed up.


I have uncomented the following lines in file

our $hermesserver = "http://$hostname/cgi-bin/herminator";;
our $hermesnamespace = "OBS";
our $notification_plugin = "notify_hermes";


Now, am I missing something on the configuration side? I thought
notification types are created automatically as them come. Do i need
to anything special to connect hermes to OBS? Or does it have to with
user permissions to the herminator template files or something else?

Any help is appreciated. Thanks
