2 minute read

This page displays all resource pools currently available to CloudBees CD.

Viewing the List of Resource Pools

You can view all resource pools known to the CloudBees CD server in either of two ways:

  • From the Deploy UI: browse to https://<cloudbees-flow-server>/flow/, and then from the main menu, click DevOps Essentials > Resource Pools.

  • From the Automation Platform UI: browse to https://<cloudbees-flow-server>/commander/, and then from the main menu, click Administration > Pools.

The Resource Pools page displays the following information:

Column Name Description

Pool Name

This is the name you supplied for this resource pool. Click on a pool name to go to the Resource Pool Details page.


If this box is checked, this resource pool is enabled.

Auto Delete

If this column is selected with a check mark, the pool will be deleted when the last resource is deleted or removed.


(Optional) Plain text or HTML description for this object. If using HTML, you must surround your text with <html> …​ </html> tags. Allowable HTML tags are <a>, <b>, <br>, <div>, <dl>, <font>, <i>, <li>, <ol>, <p>, <pre>, <span>, <style>, <table>, <tc>, <td>, <th>, <tr>, and <ul>.

<span style="font-family: Arial;">
  <i>Note:</i> For more information about the <b>abc</b> object, see
         <a href="">\</a>.

Use the Copy link to make an exact duplicate of an existing resource pool, then select the copy to go to the Resource Pool Details page to change the resource pool name or add or remove resources from the pool. Use the Delete link to delete the resource pool on the same row.

Deleting a resource pool does not delete the resources referenced by the pool.
