Sometimes when you submit patch to gerrit, you may have one or several gates running against the patch, verifying it has no issues, so it’s safe to merge it.
But what would you do if want to re-run all gates? usually I see developers using one of the following ways:
- go to the actual build page in jenkins and click on ‘retrigger all’
- comment in gerrit system with specific string
Rebase would work only if there is what to rebase on and using directly the build page on jenkins server will only work if you have account with permissions to access this jenkins server – so those two methods would be less convenient to use.
