Jenkins - Continuous integration

Jenkins is an award-winning application that monitors executions of repeated jobs, such as building a software project or jobs run by cron. Among those things, current Jenkins focuses on building/testing software projects continuously (e.g., like CruiseControl) and monitoring executions of externally-run jobs.

This appliance includes all the standard features in TurnKey Core, and on top of that:

  • Jenkins configurations:

    • Jenkins is installed from the Long Term Support package repository managed directly by the Jenkins project.

      Security note: Updates to Jenkins may require supervision so they ARE NOT configured to install automatically. See below for updating Jenkins.

    • Jenkins is preconfigured to use PAM authentication.
    • Includes all popular VCS clients and related Jenkins plugins for Git, Bazaar, Mercurial and Subversion.
    • JENKINS_HOME configured in environment: /var/lib/jenkins.
    • jenkins-cli bash wrapper script - can now use 'jenkins-cli' instead of 'java -jar path/to/jenkins-cli.jar' (convenience).
  • SSL support out of the box.
  • Includes postfix MTA (bound to localhost) for sending of email (e.g. password recovery).
  • Webmin modules for configuring Apache and Postfix.

Supervised Manual Jenkins Update

Before upgrading it is recommended that you consult the relevant upgrade guide. Once satisfied, you can upgrade to the latest version of Jenkins from the command line:

apt-get update
apt-get install jenkins

We recommend subscribing to the Jenkins Security Advisories mailing list.
