# Building in the Open Buildservice¶

Hint

Abstract

This document gives a brief overview how to build images with KIWI in version 9.16.27 inside of the Open Buildservice. A tutorial on the Open Buildservice itself can be found here: https://en.opensuse.org/openSUSE:Build_Service_Tutorial

The next generation KIWI is fully integrated with the build service. In order to start it’s best to checkout one of the integration test image build projects from the base Testing project Virtualization:Appliances:Images:Testing_ARCH at:

https://build.opensuse.org

In order to use the next generation KIWI to build an appliance in the build service it is required to add the Builder project as repository to the KIWI XML configuration like in the following example:

<repository type="rpm-md" alias="kiwi-next-generation">
<source path="obs://Virtualization:Appliances:Builder/Factory"/>
</repository>
