Contributing to ONAP
Getting access to the source code
ONAP is composed of a big list of projects on which you can contribute to.
To have a preview of the projects you can check the mirrored repositories on GitHub/onap. As mirror you can’t really contribute to them that way.
To contribute using you need to:
- Go on the ONAP’s Gerrit: gerrit.onap.org
- Create a linux foundation account (in
Account signup / management)
- Then you need to sign in (it’s a tiny
sign inlink under the
- Create a ssh public key (like you would do on GitHub):
ssh-keygen -t rsa
- Add your public key in
settings/SSH Public Keys
- test your ssh tunnel with :
ssh -p 29418 <sshusername>@gerrit.<project>.org
- On your project page, you should be able to clone the project using ssh.
Commit to the project
Each project has a JIRA project associated to it at jira.onap.org. It is a good way to find things to do on a project.
To contribute and actually commit code you would need:
- Acquire the commit hook:
curl -Lo ./.git/hooks/commit-msg https://gerrit.onap.org/r/tools/hooks/commit-msg chmod +x ./.git/hooks/commit-msg
- Add the files to your commit message
git add .
- Sign off the commit and add the issue ID to the footer (it’s case-sensitive)

- Push your code to refs for master:
git push origin HEAD:refs/for/master
- It will go through a process of being reviewed, accepted. To make any change to your commit, use:
git commit --amend
