Jenkins Audit to Database Plugin

This Jenkins plugin allows the recording of build information to a database.

Installation

Database connections are established via JDBC, so you have to ensure a valid JDBC driver for your database can be found by this plugin. This can be accomplished in two ways:

Use the Jenkins classpath

If Jenkins is running as a standalone application, you can put the JDBC driver package in the war/WEB-INF/lib directory. If Jenkins is running inside a J2EE container (e.g. Tomcat) you can use the container's classpath instead (consult the container's documentation for details).

Use the plugin's classpath

Regardless of whether jenkins is running as a standalone application or as a web application inside a J2EE container, you can put the JDBC driver package in $JENKINS_HOME/plugins/audit2db/WEB-INF/lib. This directory will be created the first time you run the plugin inside Jenkins, so if you can't see it (and assuming you have actually already installed the audit to databasep plugin), then try restarting Jenkins.

This plugin has been tested with the following JDBC drivers:

org.hsqldb.jdbc.JDBCDriver

oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver

com.microsoft.sqlserver.jdbc.SQLServerDriver

Now add the plugin to your Jenkins installation, but before you can use it we need to set up the audit database. In the Jenkins configuration page, enter the JDBC connection details for your audit database and test the connection. If the connection is successful click on the Advanced button. Another button will appear. This will allow you to generate the data definition script to set up the audit database. If you have any DBAs, it is a good idea to pass this script over to them now. It is also a good idea to discuss in detail your audit reporting requirements with your DBAs, so that they can configure the appropriate indexes on the audit tables and help you build your reporting queries.

Note

If you want to use Windows integrated authentication with the SQL Server JDBC driver, then read carefully this article.
