Folks,


One of our longest running Google Cloud projects has seen its most useful days come and go. We will turn it down on March 31, 2023. There are still some endpoints who rely on JSON data from omahaproxy, so if you think anything you own relies on Omahaproxy (e.g. cs/ link), check out Chromium Dash instead. The following shows where the functionality of each tool in OmahaProxy can be found:



Most usage of Omahaproxy relies on /all.json. Here is an alternative source of the same data. 


Please file a bug using component=Tools>ChromiumDash if you have any concerns.


Thanks,

Ben Mason

Is there a replacement for the "Who" functionality for mapping @chromium.org accounts to @google.com accounts (and vice-a-versa)?

I think this has been broken for a while anyway.

Does that feature actually work today?  I just learned of it from this e-mail.  I tried the @chromium.org + @google.com e-mails of 3 people as a spot-check (including myself).  In all 6 cases the "Who Result" response was the exact e-mail I entered, without any mapping between the domains.

That's far from the same functionality. Filed crbug.com/1413680 (per the request at the bottom of this mail).
 

No. The V8 repository can show you the contents and history of a given V8 version (or commit), once you know which version you're interested in. When you're trying to find out which V8 version is in a given Chrome release, it can't help you.

  • All versions (CSV) -> (Deprecated - if you’re using this, please reach out)

The publish_tarball recipe uses the OmahaProxy recipe module, which fetches the CSV data from https://omahaproxy.appspot.com/history.

I've filed https://crbug.com/1413633 to track this.

Forgive me if this exists somewhere, but I looked through the "translations" below and couldn't find the three features I use most often from Omahaproxy:
  • Map from version number to chromium commit number. E.g. 109.0.5414.119 --> 1070088.
  • Map from commit number to hash and version. E.g. 1070088 --> 4417ee59... and 109.0.5414.0
  • List of latest Canary/Dev/Beta/Stable version numbers by platform
Do these exist somewhere on chromiumdash?

Thanks,
Mason

I use the CSV viewer portion to check which major versions are actually pushing to what channel for each platform. I manage the Ci/CQ configurations and this allows me to turn down unnecessary testing for a platform once a particular version is no longer being pushed for the platform. How do I find that information on chromiumdash?

+1 on mapping a commit position to a version. The closest I could find maps a CL to what looks like a shipping release version, but this isn't the same thing. I very regularly want to know in which canary branch a CL first appeared.

The best I got is: crrev.com/789456 => gives you gitiles so it gives you the hash.

Then search for the hash under commits:


Clicking on that commit gives:

Canary 86 86.0.4206.0 as the first Canary build that had this commit.


Maybe there's a better way with fewer steps.

There's a chrome extension called 'Chromium CL Finder', which will show the cl's landed version(both browser and chromeos) on gerrit. I think it's internal only now and hopefully the gerrit team can integrate it(they mentioned this).
Personally I found it very useful.

I do have an internal tool that depends on https://storage.googleapis.com/chromium-find-releases-static

It is used in the pipeline that powers the ChromeOS UI Stability Triage dashboard (https://data.corp.google.com/sites/cros-ui-stability-triage). 

Among other things, the dashboard shows CLs linked to bugs, linked to crash signatures. It can even flag crashes that continue being reported after a (purported) fix has landed.

This automation saves us (ChromeOS UI Stability Triage rotation) a lot of time, and it would be a pity to lose it.

A few months ago I asked about a clean way to access this data here, and got pointed to https://chrome-internal.googlesource.com/infra/infra_internal/+/HEAD/doc/troopers/playbooks/workflow.md#Find-Releases, which says that the data lives in a local Python pickle file somewhere. I ended up writing my own Python script that (very gently) scrapes https://storage.googleapis.com/chromium-find-releases-static.

I wonder if this deprecation would create a strong enough reason to export this data (specifically, a mapping from a commit hash to a Chrome version) into a Plx table?

Thanks,

  Vlad

Just a reminder that we shouldn't be posting links to or screenshots of internal tools on a public mailing list.

+1 I use omahaproxy almost every day for these same tasks. It would be pretty sad to no longer have such a tool available.

I filed https://crbug.com/1415499 to track the request for Chromium Dash, though maybe there should be separate feature requests for each one.


Thanks,

+1. Could you make https://crbug.com/1415499 public, please? I'd also be interested in following its status.

(I'm currently using omahaproxy's list of latest versions by platform here (live page))

Hi, 

Puppeteer project is using https://omahaproxy.appspot.com/all.json to find the latest released revision (branch_base_position). Is there a new API on ChromiumDash that returns the revision information?
It looks like endpoints like https://versionhistory.googleapis.com/v1/chrome/platforms/all/channels/all/versions/ only return versions.

Best regards,
Alex

Can you please add a note/banner to omahaproxy directing people to chromiumdash or to this thread?

Also, I noticed today a few uses from Google sites:
- The JavaScript on https://chromeenterprise.google/browser/download/ uses /all.json, at least for display.
- https://developer.chrome.com/docs/web-platform/chrome-release-channels/ links to omahaproxy and should probably link to https://chromiumdash.appspot.com/releases instead. I think a few other pages on developer.chrome.com also link to omahaproxy.

I was able to write my own script borrowing the crucial 10 lines of code from find_releases, so my pipeline's needs a fully satisfied.

There is https://chromiumdash.appspot.com/fetch_releases?num=1 which will show details of currently released builds and https://chromiumdash.appspot.com/fetch_version?version=110.0.5481.61 (swap out the version code) which will give you information about a version. Do those help?

What is the nearest/easiest equivalent to e.g. https://omahaproxy.appspot.com/history?channel=stable&os=win what I am looking for is a simple list of all releases I can eyeball to e.g. know what release was out on a particular day, and also know when a particular milestone was released, with UTC timestamp, and being easily able to filter by channel and OS.

I found e.g. https://chromiumdash.appspot.com/releases?platform=Windows but I have to click 'load more' over and over to get more e.g. to get back to releases from > 1 year ago, and it does also not show UTC timestamp.

One advantage of OmahaProxy is the fact that it had all these tools in one place without needing to remember N different tools to use.
Are there any plans to make a doc or page that's a "cheatsheet" with all the links to the replacements?

Resurrecting this thread because I recently got fooled by the still-operating https://omahaproxy.appspot.com/ site. You can happily type revision numbers into the "Find Releases" blank, and while old revisions will report information, new revisions will just (forever) tell you that they haven't landed yet.

Would it be possible to remove any parts of that site that are now turned down?

Thanks,
Mason
