Plugin management guide

CloudBees Core and CloudBees Jenkins Distribution include access to the CloudBees Assurance Program, which is enabled by default through the Beekeeper Upgrade Utility ("Beekeeper"). By monitoring plugin versions and comparing the configuration of your instance to plugins identified by CloudBees as verified, trusted, or unverified, Beekeeper provides "envelope enforcement" to provide stability and security.

Older products, CloudBees Jenkins Enterprise 1.x and CloudBees Jenkins Platform or higher, also use plugins to include functionality and also include access to the CloudBees Assurance Program.

Refer to Plugins guide if you are looking for information about specific plugins and their use cases.

If you’re running CloudBees Core in a secured environment, refer to Managing CloudBees Core plugins in a secured environment. Otherwise, refer to this guide to learn how to install and manage plugins from the UI and the command line.

Through the CloudBees Assurance Program, CloudBees classifies plugins into tiers according to how much risk to a given installation’s stability a given plugin may pose. See CloudBees plugin support policies for details.

This guide explains how to perform common tasks for managing plugins using Beekeeper.
