Jenkins Plugin: Triggering User

This is a plugin for [Jenkins][] Continuous Integration Server. This plugin populated the $TRIGGERING_USER environment variable with a best guess for the user who triggered the current build.


Install Maven 2.2.1 or higher

cd ~/jenkins-triggering-user
mvn package && mvn install
scp target/triggering-user-plugin.hpi user@jenkins.server:/opt/jenkins/.jenkins/plugins/.

The last part is to place the hpi file into the plugins directory. You can also do this through the Jenkins interface if you do not have ssh access to the Jenkins server.
