npx nx-cloud start-ci-run
At the beginning of your main job, invoke
npx nx-cloud start-ci-run. This tells Nx Cloud that the following series of command correspond to the same CI run.
You can configure your CI run by passing the following flags:
By default, invoking
npx nx-cloud start-ci-run will configure Nx to distribute all commands by default. You can disable this as follows:
npx nx-cloud start-ci-run --use-dte-by-default=false.
By default, a failure in one of the commands is going to terminate the whole CI run and will stop all the agents. You can disable this as follows:
npx nx-cloud start-ci-run --stop-agents-on-failure=false.
By default, Nx Cloud won't terminate any agents until you invoke
npx nx-cloud stop-all-agents because Nx Cloud doesn't know if you will need agents to run another command. This can result in agents being idle at the end of a CI run.
You can fix it by telling Nx Cloud that it can terminate agents after it sees a certain target:
npx nx-cloud start-ci-run --stop-agents-after=e2e.
Earlier versions of
nx-cloudrequired you to set the
NX_CLOUD_DISTRIBUTED_EXECUTIONenv variable to
trueto enable DTE, but in the latest version
npx nx-cloud start-ci-rundoes it automatically.
npx nx-cloud start-ci-run will tell Nx to distribute by default. You can enable/disable distribution for individual commands as follows:
nx affected -t build --dte(explicitly enable distribution, Nx >= 14.7)
nx affected -t build --no-dte(explicitly disable distribution, Nx >= 14.7)
NX_CLOUD_DISTRIBUTED_EXECUTION=true nx affected -t build(explicitly enable distribution)
NX_CLOUD_DISTRIBUTED_EXECUTION=false nx affected -t build(explicitly disable distribution)
npx nx-cloud stop-all-agents
This command tells Nx Cloud to terminate all agents associated with this CI run.
