Jenkins Connector

Summary

The Jitterbit Harmony Jenkins Connector establishes access to Jenkins.

The Jenkins connector provides an interface for creating a Jenkins connection, the foundation used for generating instances of Jenkins activities. These activities, once configured, interact with Jenkins through the connection.

The Jenkins connector is accessed from the design component palette's Connectivity tab (see Connectors in Design Component Palette).

Connector Overview

This connector is used to first configure a Jenkins connection. Activity types associated with that connection are then used to create instances of activities that are intended to be used as sources (to provide data in an operation) or targets (to consume data in an operation).

Together, a specific Jenkins connection and its activities are referred to as a Jenkins endpoint:

Jenkins activity types

  • Stop Job: Stops a job in a Jenkins automation server and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.

  • Start Job: Starts a job in a Jenkins automation server and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.

  • Delete Job: Deletes a job from a Jenkins automation server and is intended to be used as a target in an operation.

  • Get Job: Retrieves a job from a Jenkins automation server and is intended to be used as a source in an operation.

Prerequisites and Supported API Versions

The Jenkins connector requires the use of an agent version 10.1 or later. These agent versions automatically download the latest version of the connector when required.

The Jenkins connector uses the Jenkins Remote Access API.
