CloudBees field-contributed plugins and solutions

2 minute readExtensibility

The Electric Cloud Community GitHub organization contains repositories with plugins and CloudBees field-contributed solutions. The assets in these repositories are free to use, and you can modify them as needed.

You can also share enhancements and fixes via GitHub and offer suggestions in the form of GitHub project “issues” so that CloudBees or others in the GitHub community can address them.

These assets are not officially supported by CloudBees and have not undergone formal testing. CloudBees is not liable for any repercussions of using this software.


The EC-Admin repository is a collection of administrative procedures to help you manage your CloudBees CD/RO server. These procedures were developed to respond to requests from customers during CloudBees Professional Services engagements.

This repository contains the following modules:

  • System health

  • Look and feel

  • Jobs and workspaces management

  • Plugins

  • Artifact management

  • Object export backup and restore

  • Schedules

  • Semaphore management

  • License logger

  • postp debugger helper

  • Communication

  • Miscellaneous


The DSL-Samples repository contains sample projects created with the CloudBees CD/RO domain-specific language (DSL). This DSL is based on the Groovy programming language and is run directly on the CloudBees CD/RO server JVM. It has full access to the CloudBees CD/RO API and can be used for authoring CloudBees CD/RO content (such as procedures, workflow, and pipelines) and for automation.

For more information about CloudBees CD/RO DSL, refer to CloudBees CD/RO domain-specific language (DSL).


The EC-DSLIDE repository contains a DSL web-based tool for editing and running DSL scripts.

The EC-DSLIDE plugin has been replaced by the CloudBees CD/RO DSL IDE editor. For more information, refer to DSL editors.


ec-specs-tool is an easy-to-use testing tool for writing specifications and acceptance tests.

  1. Download the CloudBees CD/RO <solution name>.jar file from the Electric Cloud Community Forums website. For this example, the solution name is Test.

  2. Save your download to a temporary directory on the system that hosts your CloudBees CD/RO server.

  3. Unpack the .jar file in the temporary directory; the file creates a directory named Test.

    • If Java JDK is installed, use the included JAR utility to unpack the .jar file: %jar xf Test.jar.

    • For Linux, use any unzip utility. For example, unzip Test.jar.

    • For Windows, use Windows Explorer to rename the file to to access the .jar file contents.

  4. Run the included script in the .jar file through the ec-perl interpreter (installed in the bin directory). You must have admin, or equivalent, privileges to run the setup script.
