In this hands-on lab I am going to issue you a challenge: use Jenkins and its plugins to build an artifact. You will be using no less than three projects that need to be linked in order to produce the artifact. Are you up to the challenge?
Successfully complete this lab by achieving the following learning objectives:
- Create project1
This project requires the Parameterized trigger plugin. Go to Manage Jenkins, then Manage Plugins, and install the parameterized trigger plugin.
project1to take a string parameter. Call it what you like. Set the default to what you like.
Create a build step for execute shell. Put in the following as the build step (
$varis the name of the parameter you gave to the previous step):
echo "name="$var > project1.txt
Post build, archive the artifact
project1.txtand fingerprint it.
Post build, this project should trigger
project2and send parameters from the
- Create project2
This should be a parameterized project.
It should have one string parameter called name.
The build step should be:
echo "Hello" $name > project2.txt
project2.txtshould be archived and fingerprinted.
Post build, this should trigger a build on
- Create project3
This project requires the copy artifact plugin.
Go to Manage Jenkins and install the copy artifact plugin.
Create the project as a Freestyle job, in the build steps.
First, copy the
Second, create the
project3artifact by creating a shell build step:
content=`cat project2.txt` echo $content "this is from project3." > project3.txt
Archive the file
project3.txtand fingerprint the archive.
Verify that the file contains the required text.
