jenkins-external is a Python script that spawns a command, records
its output and exit code, and then logs this information to Jenkins
in an external job.
Currently, SSH is the only supported method to send output to Jenkins. Therefore, you must go to Configure Global Security → SSH Server, and enable the SSH server on a fixed port.
pip install jenkins-external
