About this library
Jenkins is the market leading continuous integration system, originally created by Kohsuke Kawaguchi.
Jenkins (and It's predecessor Hudson) are useful projects for automating common development tasks (e.g. unit-testing, production batches) - but they are somewhat Java-centric. Thankfully the designers have provided an excellent and complete REST interface. This library wraps up that interface as more conventional python objects in order to make many Jenkins oriented tasks easier to automate.
This library allows you to automate most common Jenkins operations using Python, such as:
- Ability to add/remove/query Jenkins jobs
- Ability to execute jobs and:
- Query the results of a completed build
- Block until jobs are complete or run jobs asyncronously
- Get objects representing the latest builds of a job
- Work with build artifacts:
- Search for artifacts by simple criteria
- Install artifacts to custom-specified directory structures
- Ability to search for builds by source code revision
- Ability to add/remove/query:
- Slaves (Webstart and SSH slaves)
- Views (including nested views using NestedViews Jenkins plugin)
- Credentials (username/password and ssh key)
- Username/password auth support for jenkins instances with auth turned on
- Ability to script jenkins installation including plugins
For a full documentation spec of what this library supports see: http://jenkinsapi.readthedocs.io/en/latest/index.html
The project has been tested against Python versions:
Project tested on both stable (LTS) and latest Jenkins versions.
- Job deletion operations fail unless Cross-Site scripting protection is disabled.

Egg-files for this project are hosted on PyPi. Most Python users should be able to use pip or setuptools to automatically install this project.
Using Pip or Setuptools
Most users can do the following:
pip install jenkinsapi
Both of these techniques can be combined with virtualenv to create an application-specific installation.
Using your operating-system's package manager
Ubuntu users can now use apt to install this package:
apt-get install python-jenkinsapi
Beware that this technique will get a somewhat older version of Jenkinsapi.
JenkinsAPI is intended to map the objects in Jenkins (e.g. Builds, Views, Jobs) into easily managed Python objects:
>>> import jenkinsapi >>> from jenkinsapi.jenkins import Jenkins >>> J = Jenkins('http://localhost:8080') >>> J.version 1.542 >>> J.keys() # Jenkins objects appear to be dict-like, mapping keys (job-names) to ['foo', 'test_jenkinsapi'] >>> J['test_jenkinsapi'] <jenkinsapi.job.Job test_jenkinsapi> >>> J['test_jenkinsapi'].get_last_good_build() <jenkinsapi.build.Build test_jenkinsapi #77> ...
More examples available on Github: https://github.com/pycontribs/jenkinsapi/tree/master/examples
If you have installed the test dependencies on your system already, you can run the testsuite with the following command:
python setup.py test
Otherwise using a virtualenv is recommended. Setuptools will automatically fetch missing test dependencies:
virtualenv source .venv/bin/active (venv) python setup.py test
- Make sure that you have Java installed.
- Create virtual environment for development
- Install package in development mode
(venv) pip install -e . (venv) pip install -r test-requirements.txt
- Make your changes, write tests and check your code
