In this lesson we will be leveraging Source Code Management to provide the code for our build. This means that we will add the step of cloning from Git, as well as installing a required build tool and archiving the artifact of the build.
Successfully complete this lab by achieving the following learning objectives:
- Create an Ant Installation on the Jenkins Master
From the dashboard menu on the left, select Configure Jenkins, then select Configure Build Tools. Scroll down to Ant installation and add an installation. Name the installation and check the box for automatic installation.
- Create a Freestyle Project That Uses Git and the Ant Installation
From the Jenkins Dashboard select New Item.
Then name the project and select Freestyle project as the type.
In the configuration screen, under Source Code Management, check the box for Git.
Enter the repository to clone: https://github.com/linuxacademy/content-cje-scmlab.git
