Running OwlBot locally

Follow instructions in OwlBot Usage Guide - "How will I test my .github/.OwlBot.yaml file" using the instructions for split repositories. Note, if you replace step 2 with a clone of your own fork of the googleapis/googleapis-gen.git repo, you can see how changes in your forked googleapis-gen repo are eventually propagated through to the library without making changes to the protos. Lack of permissions may also force you to clone a fork instead of the repo.

After following these steps the generated code will have replaced corresponding files in the google-cloud-go repo.

Running the post-processor docker container locally

You can verify the name of the docker container name can be found in the .github/OwlBot.yaml and github/OwlBot.lock.yaml files.

In the google-cloud-go root directory:

docker pull
docker run --user $(id -u):$(id -g) --rm -v $(pwd):/repo -w /repo

Making changes, rebuilding the docker container and updating the OwlBot SHA

After making changes to the post-processor, you need to publish a new version of the post-processor docker container and manually update the which version of the post-processor is used by OwlBot. To do this you need to update the SHA in the OwlBot lock file.

  1. In your google-cloud-go repo, create a branch.

  2. Make changes to the post-processor.

  3. Test your changes. You can run the post-processor locally on selected clients or on all of the clients in the root directory. If the branch flag is empty/unset, the post-processor will exit early without changes. In the google-cloud-go/internal/postprocessor directory:

    go run . -client-root="../.." -googleapis-dir="/path/to/local/googleapis" -branch="my-branch"

    To test only selected clients:

    go run . -client-root="../.." -googleapis-dir="/path/to/local/googleapis" -branch="my-branch" -dirs="accessapproval,asset"
  4. Clean up any changes made by post-processor test runs in the previous step.

  5. Commit your changes.

  6. Open your PR and respond to feedback.

  7. After your PR is approved and CI is green, merge your changes. An automated job should update the SHA of the post-processor docker image in google-cloud-go/.github/.OwlBot.lock.yaml.

Updating the postprocessor version used by OwlBot

After making changes to this package land in main, a new Docker image will be built and pushed automatically. To update the image version used by OwlBot, run the following command (you will need Docker installed and running):

docker pull

Extract the sha256 Digest from the logs emitted by the pull and set it as the digest in the lockfile.

Send a pull request with the updated .github/.OwlBot.lock.yaml.

Note: Any open OwlBot PR will need to be caught-up and the postprocessor rerun to capture the changes.

Initializing new modules

The post-processor initializes new modules by generating the required files internal/version.go, go.mod, and

To add a new module, add the directory name of the module to modules in google-cloud-go/internal/postprocessor/config.yaml. Please maintain alphabetical ordering of the module names.

Validating your config changes

The validate command is run as a presubmit on changes to either the .github/.OwlBot.yaml or the internal/postprocessor/config.yaml.

If you want to run it manually, from the repository root, simply run the following:

go run ./internal/postprocessor validate

If you want to validate existence of service config yaml in the PostProcessor config, provide an absolute path to a local clone of googleapis:

go run ./internal/postprocessor validate -googleapis-dir=$GOOGLEAPIS

If you want validate a specific config file, not the repository default, then provide aboslute paths to either or both config files like so:

go run ./internal/postprocessor \
   -owl-bot-config=$OWL_BOT_YAML \

If you think there is an issue with the validator, just fix it in the same CL as the config change that triggered it. No need to update the postprocessor sha when the validate command is changed, it runs from HEAD of the branch.
