Jenkins is an integration tool that allows continuous development, test, and deployment of newly created code. Jenkins can be implemented in-cloud as well as on-premise and Cutover is able to integrate with both setups. Use Cutover to gain visibility across your organization into complex, sequenced Jenkins jobs that can be configured in Cutover with or without parameters, for an easy way to build the process that will seamlessly execute your next application release.
What can the Jenkins integration do?
Use our integration to connect to Jenkins and trigger ‘jobs’ allowing you to perform work such as building software packages and running tests. Select the associated Jenkins Task Type to configure the Jenkins task. The Task Details panel can be edited to include the Jenkins branch information.
Once the Jenkins task is started within Cutover, the job will start running in Jenkins. Cutover will display a status to show the progress of the integration. These statuses are Connecting, Queued, Build percentage, and Completed. Real-time progress is shared back in Cutover and once the job is finished in Jenkins, the task will be completed automatically in Cutover.
You will need to have a self-hosted Jenkins Server URL and a Jenkins Authentication token. You will also need the email address and username of the user with API access.
